F Sport hoping to bounce back in second round of British GT


Following an unfortunate weekend in Oulton Park on 20-22 April, TF Sport return to Snetterton this weekend, for the second round of the British GT championship.

Fielding four cars – two GT3s and two GT4s – the team are in pursuit of executing a strong weekend to revive their championship hopes.

Mark Farmer and Nicki Thiim sit in the #2, with Graham Davidson and Jonny Adam driving the #47. The quartet of AMR academy drivers return to the GT4s with Patrick Kibble and Josh Price in the #95, alongside Tom Canning and Ashley Hand in the #97.

Last year, TF Sport left Snetterton with two race wins, two pole positions and another podium, performing a near-perfect weekend.

All eight drivers are in high hopes heading into Snetterton, seeking success to drown out the unfortunate opening double-header last month.
Jonny Adam #47
“We’re looking forward to Snetterton. It’s been a good proving ground over the years, and we’ve tested well there. We’ve been there for a couple of days and we’re looking to bounce back with a good result. Oulton wasn’t what we wanted for the whole team, but we’ve definitely got the pace as a team. For both cars in GT3 we all want to get back on the podium and try and get some good points over the weekend.”
Mark Farmer #2
“Oulton Park was a very difficult weekend for us, not a lot went well. The car definitely has good pace so we’re looking forward to Snetterton this weekend. We've had some great results there in the past with pole positions, wins and lots of podiums, so we are expecting a return to form there and to put some strong points on the board.”

Five years since our last entry, TF Sport return to GT4 this season with two AMR Vantage GT4s. In 2014 we wrapped up the year in third place; with drivers Andrew Jarman and Devon Modell finishing as runners up in the drivers’ championship.

This year we are running two cars with a quartet of AMR Academy drivers joining us for this years’ campaign. 16-year-old Patrick Kibble and 20-year-old Josh Price sit in the #95 while 17-year-old Tom Canning lines up alongside 24-year-old Ashley Hand in the #97.
Josh Price #95
“We’ve got high expectations going into Snetterton this weekend. We’ve learnt from our first ever British GT meeting and now we’re aiming to be on that top step. I feel there’s no reason we shouldn’t be in contention going off the pace of the Vantage.”
Tom Canning #97
“Snetterton is one of my favourite UK circuits and we have been strong in testing. We showed our potential in round one at Oulton Park, so I am very confident going into round two. The car is going extremely well, and I look forward to getting back behind the wheel.”
Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Director
“We’re looking forward to returning to Snetterton. Oulton Park was not great for us at all, but we’ve done some testing since then and things look strong going into the weekend. I’m hoping for a problem free weekend and to finish it off with a strong haul of points for all four cars.”
