British GT: Beechdean AMR wins rainy race 2 at Snetterton
Beechdean AMR pair Jonathan Adam and Andrew Howard won the race 2 at Snetterton which was stopped earlier due to bad conditions.
Championship leader Alexander Sims had pole position for rainy race two, but after a collision with Jonathan Adam in turn 1, his BMW slid out and collected Rory Butcher’s Aston Martin. Later both returned to race, with Ecurie Ecosse with chance to still earn some points, while Adam took the lead ahead Joe Osborne and Phil Keen.
Andrew Howard took the reigns from Adam in Beechdean AMR’s #007, and managed to keep the leading position despite dismal weather and track conditions. With 12 minutes to go, stewards decided to stop the race and that was an absolutely correct decision as visibility was very bad and the track was full of water.
So, Adam and Howard clinched their third win this season. Team Russia by Barwell pair Phil Keen and Jon Minshaw were second, while the third place was won by 22GT Racing with Jon Barnes and Mark Farmer behind a wheel of an Aston Martin Vantage.
In GT4 class, Fox Motorsport took the victory thanks to Fulvio Mussi’s brilliant driving alongside Jamie Stanley. Second were Century Motorsport with Aleksander Schjerpen and Fredrik Blomstedt, and Tolman Motorsport won the third with Luke Davenport and David Pattison.
Fourth place was won by Beechdean AMR pair Jamie Chadwick and Ross Gunn. The duo secured them championship title in GT4 class, making Chadwick the first female driver to win British GT title and also the youngest with 17 years and 95 days!
With a point and a half at stake, season finale at Donington will surely be very interesting as four crews could technically win the championship title in GT3 class.
