Brief word on Argentinian Franco Colapinto aged just 17 in the #25 G-Drive Oreca, 2019 Spanish F4 Champion and based upon his stints and style one to keep an eye on, stirling drive!
The LMP3 category continues to be a happy hunting ground for United Autosports with the #23 Ligier JS P320-Nissan dominating proceedings. Rory Penttinen, Wayne Boyd and Manuel Maldonado led from pole and brought the car safely home at the head of the field. Colin Noble in the #9 Nielsen Racing Ligier drove a blinding stint to bring their car home ahead of a second United Autosports Ligier the #3 of Jim McGuire, Duncan Tappy and Andrew Bentley. Unfortunately the Ginetta G61-LT-P3 from ARC Bratislava and the Duqueine M30-D08-Nissan both had troubles in their first outings of the season suffering mechanical issues.
The #99 Precote Herberth Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R of Ralf Bohn, Alfred Renauer and Robert Renauer lucked in at the flag as the #40 GPX Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R driven by Alain Ferte suffered a late spin having led for much of the race. Alain is now very much the gentleman in the car and came under pressure from the #99 which forced the mistake and took full advantage and victory. The # 7 McLaren 720S GT3 from Inception Racing with Optimum and the # 34 BMW M6 GT3 from Walkenhorst Motorsport completed the podium.
For the GT Am category, the # 66 Ferrari 488 GT3 from Rinaldi Racing stood out.
