TF Sport return to winning ways at Donington Park
TF Sport returned to the top spot after Graham Davidson and Jonny Adam dominated a thrilling race at Donington Park.
The Scottish duo scored back-to-back pole positions, while the sister GT3 of Nicki Thiim and Mark Farmer slotted into the top eight.
Graham maintained the lead of the race and had soon bought himself a nine second lead having set a succession of fastest laps within the opening laps. Mark however fell victim to the pack and lost a handful of places after a brief off, to end up in 12th.
After the pit stops Jonny returned in the lead of the race in the #47 while Nicki returned to the track a lap down, but within the top ten. On a mission for bragging rights, Nicki started to set some rapid laps on a quest to beat the lap record he set last year.
On his way, he began to catch the leaders including the sister GT3 who had begun to suffer with its brakes. Jonny managed the late pressure from the Balfe Motorsport – and Nicki – to cross the line three seconds clear, to convert their pole position into a race win; reviving their championship hopes.
Nicki crossed the line in ninth overall to take home a handful of points and the fastest lap of the race – and lap record – of a 1:27:948.
The team closes the gap in the championship to the leading Barwell Motorsport, as Jonny and Graham elevate in the driver's championship to third. Nicki and Mark sit in sixth in the championship with three rounds remaining.
