Barwell Aston takes Britcar Crown

Mark Poole and Richard Abra piloted the Barwell Motorsport Aston Martin Vantage GT2 to overall victory in the Britcar 1000km/6 hour endurance race on the Silverstone GP circuit this weekend. In a truly commanding performance, the Aston lead virtually from the start. And a second Aston, driven by Paul Bailey and Andy Schulz, joined by SV Team Manager Tom Ferrier took overall second to truly stamp the marque on this gruelling race. The two Astons also posted the fastest laps in their own respective classes. Nigel Mustill’s Riley took the third place spot.

A very familiar car to endurance racing, the Neil Garner Motorsport Mosler took fourth and the Team Parker Racing Porsche 997 GT3 Cup was fifth, with Ian Loggie and Chris Jones joined by Parker joint owner Julian Westwood.

Out of 32 qualifiers, only 7 cars did not complete the race, including the Geoff Steel Racing BMW M3 of Michael Symons and Keith Webster which had performed so well in the 90 minute Britcar Production Cup Championship earlier in the season.

Britcar returns to the grid for night races at both Donington and Brands Hatch in November.
