TF Sport return to the podium in second round of British GT
TF Sport enjoyed a clean weekend during the second round of British GT with a podium in both GT3 and GT4; as the team returned to Snetterton on a mission to revive their championship hopes.
The start of race one proved problematic, but Graham avoided the spinning Century Motorsport at the hairpin to maintain eighth and dodge trouble. However, the #2 wasn’t so fortunate after Mark was hit by one of the Lamborghini’s sending him off road and out of position.
By lap 11, Graham had moved up to ninth overall and Mark was on the brink of the top ten. But after the pitstops both GT3s merited and Jonny moved up to fourth in the #47 by passing the Balfe Motorsport.
With minutes left on the clock, the #47 moved up into third and begun a battle with the #7 Bentley for second place, whilst defending the other Bentley (JRM Racing). Though the #31 initially snuck into third sneaking past Jonny, the team benefitted from a mishap, with a GT4 and the two Bentleys squabbling which allowed Jonny to race to the line to take back third. Nicki crossed the line in sixth.
Race two looked promising with Nicki starting on pole and Jonny among the top seven. The duo maintained position at the start, holding off pressure from the cars behind them. The Mercedes tucked in behind Nicki but the Dane was able to open a small gap.
As the pit stops came into play, Mark maintained the lead and Graham re-joined in seventh. Unfortunately for the #2, the Lamborghini was just too quick to keep behind and on lap 22, Mark dropped to second and ultimately finished in fourth just ahead of Graham who had promoted himself into fifth.
