Congratulations to Dan Denis/David McDonald of Scuderia Vittoria, and Jake Rattenbury /Josh Wakefield of Century Motorsport who scored a fantastic 1st and 2nd place finish in the demanding Avon Tyres British GT4 Championship at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend (July 9th – 10th).
Following a near perfect qualifying session on Friday the Denis/McDonald duo placed their Ginetta G50 on pole for race one leading the GT4 pack from start to finish, crossing the line a clear lap ahead of Rattenbury/Wakefield of Century Motorsports who finished 2nd, also in a Ginetta G50.
It was a double victory for Scuderia Vittoria as Denis also set the fastest lap of the GT4 class at 2:34.651s scoring his first class win of the season.
“My qualifying yesterday was fantastic,” Denis reflected. “I got a good start and built a comfortable lead, and my pace was good. I was a bit worried when the safety car came out that I would lose my big lead but the team did a great job in the pits and David drove quickly and sensibly. It’s great finally to get a win.”
The teams finished 12th and 13th overall respectively from a 55 car grid in the combined GT3/GT4 class race, beating all entries in both British GT4 and European GT4 class combined proving that Gi-netta G50s are more than capable on the competitive Spa power circuit.
Well done chaps!!
