Round 14 Silverstone Int

The tyres did not deliver the grip that was expected from them and both Keith and Oliver were disappointed with the cars pace. The tyres were running too cool and not generating any bite on the track surface. Oliver set a time of 1m29.7s which the lined the car up 6th in class on the grid. The race was to be a 2hr race so the team knew that it was reliability and consistency and not outright pace that would win the race.

Rounds 9&10 Mugello

Oliver Bryant qualified the car for the first race on a damp track on wet tyres. He had been on 2 flying laps and had red flags render those laps useless. On his 3rd flying lap however, only a yellow flag zone and a slow moving car meant that he had to lift in the final sector making a top 10 time impossible. Instead, the car lined up 14th overall and 2nd in the Porsche cup.

Rounds 7 & 8 Dijon

Oliver made a good start and worked his way up to 10th, 2nd in the Porsche class, he was catching the no.8 Porsche of James Murphy and handed over to Maxime just over half way through the race. Max was lapping well until a left rear puncture forced another pitstop which pushed them back to a disappointing 21st position where they finished.

Rounds 9 & 10 Rockingham

Keith missed Friday practice due to racing commitments at the Nurburgring so Oliver was left with the task of setting the car up for the weekend. The Team performed a back-to-back tyre test with two different compounds and the softer compound put Oliver fastest in class in the afternoon session. Unfortunately, Oliver would have to use this same rubber for qualifying and would not benefit from new tyres that all the other teams would run.

Rounds 11&12 Brands Hatch

Maxime qualified the car in P14 for race 1 with a 2m31.0s lap. Oliver qualified in the faster, 2nd qualifying session but was blocked by a viper on the ultra-fast run into Blanchimont. This ruined the lap and he had to settle for a 1m31.8s lap. This placed the car in P28 for the start of race 2.

Oliver had another very successful weekend at the annual 6 hrs of Spa-Francorchamps meeting in Belgium. He led the 6 hrs race in the AC Cobra that he started from 12th on the grid. “I had to start off slowly to preserve the tyres because they get very hot with the hevy fuel loads. About 45 minutes into my stint I could start to push and I worked my way up to the lead”, commented the 20-year-old GT star. His work did not pay off as the car was retired with a fuelling problem later in the race.
