Jones and Loggie Land Britcar Class Win

Chris Jones and Ian Loggie piloted the Team Parker Racing Porsche 997 to a win in this evening’s incident-filled 2 hour night endurance race at Donington to take a class win and Championship win.

Strong winds and intermittent sunshine meant a mostly dry track for both day and night qualifying but the rain came just 20 minutes into MSA British Endurance race. The cars all began the race on slicks and the change of surface caught out the MacG Racing Ultima GTR of Jonathan MacGregor and Damian Hudes which spun on the chicane exit, hitting the concrete pitwall almost head-on, resulting in a safety car deployment.

The rain later stopped and strong winds quickly led to a dry racing line. Ian Loggie made way for team mate Chris jones in the Parker Porsche. The safety car was sent out again in response to Mike Millard’s Rapier SR2 having spun at Hollywood and left too close to the track to be safe. The big MT900R Mosler of Morcillo and Cintrano later spun allowing the Horsepower Racing Aston Martin through for yet another overall win for drivers Paul Bailey and Andy Schulz.

Britcar’s final event of the year sees a combined Production Cup/MSA British Endurance 90 minute night race at Brands Hatch on Saturday 23rd November.
