Sunday, October 02, 2011

After 14 hours of racing the Aston Martin Vantage of Nicholas Mee Racing continue to lead their class and remain in contention for an overall podium. A faultless performance by #49 Vantage throughout the night and early morning saw the class3 car steadily move up the overall order.

Vantage Racing continue to battle on, problems caused the team to fall down the timing sheets early on with some 30 laps as a result of an ABS failure and subsequent trip into the gravel. A strong recovery drive brought the team up to 22nd overall only for a power steering failure to see them fall back down the timing screens .

The MB Racing Vantage suffered an ABS and gearbox failure and went off at Copse after running as high as 18th overall and 7th in class. The car was recovered to the pits and rejoined the race but with significant damage.

Nicholas Mee Racing 1st in Class / 4th Overall
