Wylie and Watson's McLaren heads British GT warm-up at Brands Hatch

Sunday, August 02 2015

Ross Wylie and Andrew Watson headed the warm-up session for today's (Sunday) Avon Tyres British GT Championship race at Brands Hatch in the VonRyanRacing McLaren 650S, whilst the GPRM Toyota GT86 was the fastest GT4 car.

Wylie headed the session after the initial laps had been completed, carrying on the impressive form of the McLaren 650S, with Rick Parfitt Jr lapping within a couple of tenths in his Team LNT Ginetta. Late on, Liam Griffin gained almost a tenth in the Oman Racing Team Aston Martin to head the order, but was almost immediately beaten by Watson, who had taken over the McLaren, and Matt Bell in the TF Sport Aston Martin.

Stefan Hodgetts headed GT4 in the Toyota GT86, putting the team's Saturday troubles behind them, whilst Oz Yusuf was the fastest Am driver in second, two tenths behind. There was little change at the top of the order as the session progressed, with polesitter Jamie Stanley taking third in the Fox Motorsport Ginetta G55.

The two-hour race will take place at 1:30pm today.
