Approaching 1/3rd distance in Dunlop 24hrs

Saturday, April 25, 2015

With just under an hour remaining until the Dunlop 24Hr at Silverstone reaches its 1/3rd race distance all three Aston Martin V8 Vantages are still in the race with the #35 Beechdean leading its class still just ahead of the #41 Speedwork's car, both cars as just 4 laps down to the overall leader.

The Aston Martin Lagonda entered car is a bit further back in 13th position overall and 11 laps down to the overall leader.

Beechdean's AMR factory driver Jonny Adam has now made it back to Silverstone after his factory duties at the Nordschleife earlier today. Just like the weather conditions that were experienced in Germany Adam got back in time to drive in the torrential rain that fell on the Northamptonshire circuit earlier leading to a prolonged Safety Car period. Team Owner Andrew Howard is also back with the team after his other business commitments called him away from the start of the race.

Many drivers in all three teams will now be having their first experience of racing at night and in the rain in that kind of car.

Still slightly over 17 hours of the race remaining. The track stays very wet in places and the track temperature will stay very low during the many hours of darkness with sunrise not expected at Silverstone until about 05.44Hrs.
