INGSport BMW takes 2013 Britcar Production Cup title

The three-man team of Ian Lawson and Mike and Anthony Wilds this evening wrapped up the Britcar Production Cup for 2013 in the final race of the year. A 90-minute endurance into the night on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit attracted 15 entries spread across 4 classes. Father Mike and son Anthony (sporting a carefully nurtured  Movember moustache) have a long-standing partnership with Ian Lawson and their BMW E36 320 has proved reliable over the season of this particular feature of the Britcar calendar Рthe MSA Endurance Championship concluded at the previous round. Two Nissan 370Z GT4 from the Nissan Academy Team guested in the race, finishing 4th and 6th overall.

Ex F1-driver Mike Wilds proved there’s plenty of life left in the old dog by also taking on a drive in a second car in a different class in the same race, sharing the 987 Porsche Boxster of Paul Moraviec. Based in Switzerland, Paul hadn’t raced since the very first round of 2013 at Donington but nonetheless posted very impressive times in free practice on the Friday, less than two seconds shy of those from the veteran racer. Guillaume Gruchet piloted the second Newbridge Motorsport Boxster to third in class 3, where Richard Bennett’s Porsche 993 RSR proved uncatchable.

Michael Symons did a full stint in the Geoff Steel BMW M3 in the absence of team mate Keith Webster but still posted a stunning fastest lap time of just 50.877 seconds.
