The Griffin/Tordoff duo secured another second place. The Aston Martin of Mark Farmer and Jon Barnes finished third. Minshaw/Keen were sixth.
In GT4 category, HHC Motorsport’s Will Tregurtha and Stuart Middleton extended their championship lead after overcoming the full 10-second success penalty to claim their second consecutive class victory in race 1. Black Bull Garage 59’s Ciaran Haggerty and Sandy Mitchell claimed their first victory of the season and took advantage of HHC Motorsport’s non-finish to give their title aspirations a timely shot in the arm.
