Forsetti dominate at GT Cup debut at Donington Park

Sunday, April 21, 2024


This weekend’s opening round of the GT Cup Championship from Donington Park again showed that new Aston Martin Racing Partner team, Forsetti Motorsport have taken on the mantel ran for so many years by the TF Sport team as being the powerhouse in GT motorsport.

Having scooped the GT4 Winter Series overall and class prizes at their first attempt, taken deserved podium finishes at the opening rounds of the British GT Championship from Oulton Park, the GT Cup became the latest series to witness the dominance of their new crews as each scooped class podium finishes at this weekend’s opener.

This time they would be running with drivers Mikey Porter and Matthew Higgins within their #9 AMR Vantage GT4 and Jodie Sloss and Rianna O’Meara-Hunt within the sister #10 car.

Again racing to a four-race format, it was three podiums out of four after the first two races of Saturday as the #10 scooped a double P2 finish within their GTH class whilst the #9 claimed a class win in race 1 before a P5 finish in race 2.

Sunday would prove equally profitable for the Snetterton based team running the older 17A version of the Vantage GT4 as this time the #9 crew delivered a double class win result whilst the #10 crew finished P4 in race 3 before ending their first weekend together in third.

These results place the #9 car at the head of both the class and overall GT Cup championship tables with the #10 car also third in class as the Championship moves onto Brands Hatch in mid-May.
