After the rain that laced the circuit during Saturday’s qualifying session wreaked havoc amongst the GT3 field, TF Sport secured two top 10 finishes in race seven of the British GT Championship.
Qualifying in P10 and P12 was not the ideal start to the weekend. However, Graham Davidson in the #47 had his head down from the very start, and soared up to fourth place on the opening lap. Mark Farmer also progressed up the field at the first corner, but was forced wide avoiding a lap one incident at Les Combes between the #69 Lamborghini and the #31 Bentley. He ultimately ended the first lap in ninth place.
Having established some rhythm, Mark caught the back of the #8 Mercedes of Richard Neary and looked to challenge for eighth place but was hit into a spin at Les Combes to drop back into 10th.
As the #6 Mercedes ran off the track, Graham graduated into the top three with Mark re-joining the top eight. But the Scotsman made contact with the #33 Porsche, resulting in a penalty.
Unfortunately, Mark tangled in a four-car battle at Eau Rouge trying to overtake the #18 which dropped him into P11 before handing the car over to Nicki. The #2 – with no penalties – returned to the circuit in ninth place, with Nicki on a pursuit of points.
Despite the success penalty - and an additional drive-through penalty for the earlier contact - the #47, with Jonny now at the wheel, came out of the pits in fifth place.
Within two laps, Nicki had set the fastest lap of the race with a 2:21:406 and swiftly moved into the top eight before tagging onto the back of the #8 Mercedes with Adam Christodoulou at the wheel. With the sister GT3 struggling with brakes, the Mercedes jumped ahead with Nicki following suit, dropping Jonny from fifth to seventh place. In the #2 however, Nicki had finally made a move stick on the #8 through Eau Rouge to move into the top five. Jonny crossed the line in eighth place, to secure a pair of top 10 finishes for TF Sport in Belgium.
