Team Brit secure Britcar double at rain soaked Snetterton

Saturday, May 08, 2021

Congratulations go again to the Team Brit Aston Martin Racing crew of Aaron Morgan and Bobby Trundley for going some better than last time out at a rain soaked second round of the Britcar Endurance Championship today at Snetterton.

Despite what the week’s earlier provisional entry list suggested, the #68 normally aspirated AMR Vantage GT4 sadly turned out to be the sole representative from the marque amongst the twenty-nine car grid.

Having Qualified in P10 overall (second in their Group 4 class) behind the EDF Motorsport Seat Cupra again, race 1 started for Trundley in gloomy conditions as heavy rain swept in by strong winds dramatically affected track conditions with a Safety Car being required at the halfway point of the hour-long race to allow for the recovery of a stranded car having ran as high as P4 overall.

Going back to green, Morgan was soon taken for Class position by the EDF car but still had track position to maintain their P2 position in class during the remaining ten minutes to claim their second podium of the season.

Starting the afternoons second and final race of their meeting from the fifth row, Morgan would at least have the chance of starting on a wet to drying track as the light began to fade under the still cloudy sky.

Progressing well, two more stranded cars again called out the Safety Car just ahead of the pitstop window but delays on track and a scary incident in pit lane for three cars lead to further delays in going back to green.

Losing nearly half the race duration to these incidences, Trundley would have only about fifteen minutes to see out the day’s proceedings and from fifth in class at the resumption of racing, Trundley would eventually take the lead of Group four with just three minutes remaining to round off a brilliant weekend for them and this special team

Well done them all!
