Trials and tribulations of getting to Spa

Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Assuming that all the teams manage to get through Operation Stack that is currently in force on the M20 because of the ongoing problems at Calais, there will be a couple of additions and omissions for the 2Hr British GT race at Spa on Saturday.

Seeing that the British GT race is only a couple of weeks prior to the Spa24 a couple of Aston Martin teams have entered this weekends event as practice event.

In a positive light Leonard Motorsport have entered their black and yellow 'Bumblebee' Vantage GT3 car with Stuart Leonard and Michael Meadows at the wheel and also joining them will be the Aston Martin Brussels GT3 car of Michael Schmetz and Tim Verbergt.

22GT Racing are due to be at Spa after having to rebuild the front end of their GT3 Vantage after its heavy, race winning impact at Silverstone. TF Sport also had work to do over the summer break also having to rebuild a car after accident damage at Silverstone together with engine issues in its sister car.

On the flip side Chloe and Jade Edwards' V8 Vantage GT4 continues to be absent from the series and this week they are joined by the Quantamatic GT4 car of Terry Langley and Mike Hart missing the event for what is being described as 'unforeseen circumstances'. Despite their 'eventful' start to their inaugural season the Leicestershire pairing are presently fourth in the drivers championship and second in the GT4 Silver Cup so will presumably be working hard to secure their series return.
