TF Sport aiming high in Silverstone 500
After leaving Snetterton with two podiums and a good haul of points, TF Sport head to Silverstone for the third round of the British GT Championship in high hopes.
With a record 42-car entry list, British GT enters the first of its endurance races this weekend. The opening rounds at Oulton Park and Snetterton held two one-hour sprint races, unlike the upcoming Silverstone 500 that is a single event fought over three hours.
The longer format also means 1.5x points are available and with five races remaining on the calendar, the championship is just about hitting the halfway mark.
Defending Silverstone 500 winners, Mark Farmer and Nicki Thiim have had an unlucky start to the year but begun their title recovery with a pole position in Snetterton, where they also finished in the top four. While Jonny Adam and Graham Davidson finished the same weekend’s first race in third place to secure the teams first podium of the season in the series.
The team sit in second place in the GT3 team’s championship despite the unfavourable start to the season. Matched with the points scored in the season opener at Oulton Park, both cars sit amongst the top ten in the drivers’ standings with the #47 in fifth and the #2 in ninth.
