Belated Weekend Roundup

photo(1)A little late, here is the roundup of racing for LearnToRace’s friends and coaches.

Damien Faulkner had a much better weekend in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship finishing 4th in GTD in his Porsche 991 GTA in the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen whilst over in Europe the British GT field headed to Spa in Belgium for a couple of races around the famous circuit.  Joe Osborne, pro driver and coach in the 88 Triple 8 Optimum BMW Z4 GT3 didn’t have a very good first race with the changing conditions giving co driver Lee Mowle a tough time on the wrong choice of tyre at the start of the race and they only managed 18th place.  Race 2 however proved much better with 5th place, just 7 seconds off the win and less than a tenth off 4th.

LearnToRace founder David Hornsey was also in action in round 5 of the CSCC Modern Classics at Castle Combe.  After qualifying 2nd on the grid after a traffic filled but great battle for pole with the BMW M3 of David Marcussen David took the first stint, involved in a nose to tail and side by side battle with Marcussen all the way to the pitstops where the LodgeSports Racing team did a fantastic job to get co-driver Steve Miller out with a 12 second advantage.  The race was red flagged with one lap to run but Steve still had nearly 7 seconds in hand to claim another overall victory for the team.  Highlights of the race can be found on the youtube page of David Hornsey or by following the link below:
