As the 2019 British GT Championship season came to a close at Donington Park this weekend (14th – 15th September),
Alex ended the season with another top 10 finish. During what was the 300th race for the championship, it was a thrilling end to a challenging season.
But of course we don’t do anything by halves!
70 guests, sponsors and a charity collection for The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Alex’s Grandad ‘Pops’ over the weekend and a bit of racing thrown in!
However things didn’t quite go to plan…. During free practice mechanical issues occurred which meant we missed qualifying and they had to start from the back of the grid.
Despite this immediate disadvantage, first stint driver, Alex raced his way through the field, passing rivals lap after lap putting on a show for his sponsors and guests. As the time came for the mandatory pit stop, Alex found himself exiting the race from first place.
With Will Moore now on board, he joined the race, keen to hold onto a top 10 position. With less than 30 minutes remaining, the safety car was forced to intrude on the action, sadly coming out just in front of Moore. Despite impeding the Aston Martin, he held on for a top 10 result, and a strong end to a trying season.
Managing Director, Matt Nicoll-Jones, said: “We’re pleased with our results today. It has been a very difficult season for us, but despite that the team has worked faultlessly and tirelessly all year to make sure we got the results.
Its been an awesome year and look forward to what 2020 has in store!
A big thank you to our sponsors and partners for their support this year.
