Saturday, April 10, 2010

The father and son partnership of Chris and Anthony Scragg has won the inaugural round of the new Aston Martin British GT4 Challenge at Snetterton. Chris Scragg crossed the finish line of the two hour race just 46 seconds ahead of the second placed pairing of Tom Black and Alan Bonner, with a second father and son pairing of David and James Appleby a lap behind in third.

After qualifying their Vantage GT4 in sixth, Anthony Scragg soon worked his way through the field in the opening laps to take the lead, a position he, and then his father held all the way to the finish after 90 laps of the 1.952 mile circuit.

Pole was set by James Appleby with a time of 1.14.488, nearly 0.9 seconds faster than anyone else. He also set the fastest lap of the race with a time of 1.14.686 (94.08mph).

The second of six rounds of the British GT4 Challenge takes place at Silverstone on May 22.
