TF Sport to carry British GT winning form on to Silverstone


The Snetterton rounds of the British GT Championship were near perfect for TF Sport with two wins, two poles and the fastest lap of the weekend. Heading to the Silverstone 500 for round four of the championship this weekend (9-10 June), the team is aiming to maintain that momentum.

Last time out Mark Farmer / Nicki Thiim took the first victory of the weekend in the #11 Aston Martin Vantage GT3, while Derek Johnston / Marco Sørensen recorded the second win in the #17 car.
This extended the teams’ advantage at the head of the championship table to 25 points after five rounds, while in the drivers’ standings, it remains close with just 17.5 points covering the top five.
Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Director 
“We turned an important corner at Snetterton with the two wins and we’re up there in the drivers’ championship. The wins are always special, but these were exceptional as the whole team worked flawlessly to get the result. Now we need to keep the wins coming and close the gap to the championship leaders.”
Mark Farmer #11
“We had a blinding race at Snetterton and we should be up there or thereabouts at Silverstone. More of the same.”
Nicki Thiim #11
“Silverstone has been good to me recently with the win in the Blancpain and I’m happy with our win at Snetterton. More this weekend please!”
Derek Johnston #17
“The last race was just perfect. Marco did what he needed to do and for me to get the win was mega. Marco said to be he’d get the fastest lap in every race and I’m going to hold him to that! I am really looking forward to Silverstone.”
Marco Sørensen #17
“I’ve not tested the car at Silverstone, but I know the track very well, so that’s not an issue. We had a very positive weekend at Snetterton, so we aim to keep the winning feeling again this coming weekend.”
