Gone 2/3rds distance at Dunlop 24Hr

Sunday, April 26, 2015

With just under 6 hours of the 2015 Dunlop 24Hrs of Silverstone remaining the many hardships of competing in a 24Hr have begun to take their toll on the entry list with only 18 of the original 28 car entry being within 100 laps of the leader.

Fortunately, that does statistic does not apply to any of the Aston Martin entries with the most notable event being that the #35 Beechdean Motorsport car has elevated itself up the order from class leader to overall leader of the race controlling a seven lap advantage of the rest.

Over at Speedworks, the #41 car hasn't faired quite so well with collision damage forcing a prolonged stop in the garage overnight loosing itself sixteen laps to the Beechdean considering they were behind each other on track some 8 hours ago. They remain 5th overall and third in class.

The #36 Aston Martin Lagonda entry is also still there in the fray with all their 'first timers' doing a marvellous job in their GT4 Vantage P6 overall and 4th in class.

Presently, with the official clock showing 5hr 25mins remaining with a Safety Car in operation the race is shaping itself up nicely for an exciting finish but obviously a lot can happen in that time as we are entering the period when a fatigued, poor decision could cost a car time or even the race.

Game on ………………!
