Bryant and Smith win the OpeningRound of 2.0L Cup at Mugello – 3rd April 2022

The 2018 2.0L Cup Champions are reunited for the 2022 series onboard the Historika Porsche 901. Olly Bryant and Andrew Smith are driving the same car in which they claimed the inaugural championship back in 2018. New for 2022, the qualifying positions are decided by the average of the fastest lap times set by each driver in the 30 minute qualifying session. Andrew Smith was fastest of the early runners around the fast flowing Mugello circuit, when Olly jumped in for the second half of the session, it began to rain and hail. The result was a slower time for Olly, which caused meant on aggregate, they started fifth on the grid. Andrew took the start and had an epic couple of opening corners, taking the lead and building a good margin over the Perez/ Gamble Tuthill run 911 in 2nd place. After the stops, Olly resumed the lead and managed to increase this 4 second advantage to 17 seconds by the flag. The pair leave round 1, at the head of the overall and “Elite” standings. The next round is at Spa on the 21st/22nd May.
