MSA British Endurance Championship Round 2 Quick Report

Silverstone International, May 11th


In a race started under the Safety Car during a heavy downpour, and blighted by intermittent showers, The Aston Martin Vantage of Paul Bailey and Andy Schulz made the best of the conditions to take the win after pole-sitter and early leader John Martin, debuting Nigel Mustill’s Riley MkXXII, retired the car with waterlogged electrics, a similar problem reducing  erstwhile frontrunners’ Morcillo/Cintrano’s Mosler to a damage limitation exercise, finishing seven laps down.

The Marcus Clutton/Jordan Witt Chevron GT3 had a brief spell in the overall lead, as did the Webb brothers  Class 3 BMW,  which eventually finished second overall, after trading places with Class 2 victors Ian Loggie and Chris Jones’ Porsche 997, both battling with an eye on the fuel gauge.

Nigel Greensall’s fastest lap in Mike Millard’s Rapier was set after a risky move to slicks on a drying track, a short-lived advantage that was stymied within minutes by another downpour.
