The GT world keeps turning. Two weeks after the Blancpain GT Series did Brands Hatch and one week after many of the teams endured 24 hours of grueling race action at the Nürburgring, Blancpain GT is back in England for the Silverstone endurance round. The fourth round of the championship sees Aston Martin Vantage GT3 team R-Motorsport start from pole position after Matthieu Vaxiviere, Nicki Thiim and Jake Dennis set a 3-lap average time of 1:56.962 in the sunny morning qualification session, just 0.159 seconds quicker than the second-placed AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG GT3 of Raffaele Marciello, Tristan Vautier and Adam Christodoulou.
The race starts at 15:00 BST / 16:00 CET.
