Trackspeed's Tandy fastest in British GT warm-up

Sunday, August 11 2013

Nick Tandy posted the fastest warm-up time ahead of today's 2-hour Avon Tyres British GT race at Brands Hatch (Sunday).

The day began with a rush onto the Grand Prix circuit to make the most of the ten minute warm-up session. The first representative fast time was set by the CWS 4x4 Spares Ginetta G55 of Tom Sharp. However the car immediately pitted as others demoted it down the order.

Stephen Jelly was next in the Trackspeed Porsche, getting to within three seconds of yesterday's pole position time. There was little change until the very end, when Ben Hetherington powered the Fortec Mercedes SLS to the top of the table, before being replaced by Nick Tandy in the championship-leading Trackspeed Porsche, his time still two seconds shy of pole position.

Elsewhere in the top ten there were strong perfornmances from the United Autosports McLaren on Zak Brown and Alvaro Parente, plus the similar VonRyan Racing example in the hands of Gregoire Demoustier and Duncan Tappy.

The 2-hour British GT race will take place at 13:40 today.
