Derek Johnston and Jonny Adam are the 2016 British GT champions! The duo in the TF Sport’s #17 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 finished second in the season’s finale at Donington Park, securing enough points for championship title. For Jonny Adam, it was second consecutive title, after last year’s triumph alongside Andrew Howard. Barwell Motorsport’s Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen, who were the championship leaders before Donington Decider, lost the battle for the title when Minshaw went off the road in the #33 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 on Lap 23.

The winners of the last race of the season are Rob Bell and Alasdair McCaig in the #79 Ecurie Ecosse McLaren 650S GT3. Bell crossed the finish line 12 seconds ahead of Adam. Rick Parfitt Jr and Seb Morris completed the podium in the #31 Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3.
