Olly wins BRDC Secretary’s Challenge

A cold but sunny Silverstone played host to the annual Walter Hays Trophy meeting. Olly was driving the Lola T70 Mk3b which he had steered to great success in this years World Sportscar Masters Series. The icy-cold temperatures made it very difficult to get any heat into the treaded Dunlop tyres but Olly drove the car to two 4th place finishes behind slick-shod cars to win the BRDC Secretary’s Challenge as the highest placed BRDC member in the two races. Olly last won this trophy in 2007 driving a Jade Sportscar.
