Claiming the crown

Five years ago McLaren returned to the world of sports car racing when it debuted the MP4-12C GT3. Its beautiful lines and advanced aerodynamics couldn’t disguise its failure as a reliable machine, proving ineffective for long distance motorsports. The promise of the McLaren 650S GT3 was to change all that. One year after first racing the 650S in anger, McLaren finally took its first big title in the modern era of sports car racing. At the Nürburgring drivers Rob Bell, Côme Ledogar and Shane Van Gisbergen, the latter in absentia, took the Blancpain GT Endurance Cup title along with...

Here sunny days often make way for...

The Donington decider

The British GT Championship reached its climax last weekend with its annual curtain call at Donington Park where the TF Sport Aston Martin Vantage crew of Derek Johnston and Jonny Adam grabbed both the team and driver championships. A direct duel for both championships was cut short when the Barwell Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán GT3 of Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen spun off the track and into the tyre wall. Having held the championship lead all season, a poor pair of results at the previous round cost the Aston Martin team their championship lead, meaning TF Sport had to overcome...
