Another Successful Spa for Olly Bryant!

BRDC “Rising Star” Olly Bryant returned from the annual Spa 6 Hour meeting with another Victory in the 2 hour GT race, sharing with his father Grahame in the famous AC Cobra, GPG 4C. The pair grabbed the win for the fifth year in a row, and they celebrated the win after a great weekend of racing for Olly and the car. Olly engaged in a battle with the similar cobra of Steve Hitchins for most of the race until Olly forced Steve into an error with 20 minutes to go, Steve spun the car at La Source allowing Olly to get through and pull away to take the win.

Rounds 11 & 12 Brands Hatch GP 12/13th July 2008

Brands Hatch started off well for Oliver who recorded the second fastest time in practice on Saturday morning with a 1m30.585s lap. Steve Clarke then qualified the car for Saturday’s race in P6 with his fastest lap of the weekend, a 1m31.542s. Oliver then engaged in an excellent fight for pole position with Allen Simonsen in the Ferrari F430. Oliver initially got pole, then Allen took it back on the following lap. Oliver then claimed pole with the first sub 1.30 lap time by a GT3 car on Avons around the Brands GP circuit with a 1m29.939. However this was then beaten by 22 thousandths of a second and Simonsen took pole with a 1m29.917s lap. Oliver’s lap time was 0.6s quicker than the next fastest Viper in P3 and he lined up on the front row in P2.
