Olly Bryant & Kyle Tilley Celebrate Podium in 2.0L Cup Opener

Mugello, Italy, April 9 — Era Motorsport is celebrating a successful introduction to the 2024 Peter Auto 2.0L Cup as Kyle Tilley and Oliver Bryant piloted the No. 60 “Queen of Diamonds” Porsche 911 to a pole position and a podium finish in the first round at the Peter Auto Mugello Classic. 

The spec racing series saw 21 entries in its 2024 season opener, all taking to the beautiful and challenging Mugello Circuit for a 90-minute battle around the 3.259-mile circuit. Starting on the pole, Kyle Tilley was first at the wheel of the Porsche, and spent his time battling it out on-track in the top three positions the entirety of his 45-minute stint. After a pit cycle and a driver change, Oliver Bryant hopped in the car in ninth-place due to the pairings Elite driver penalty, (3m04 vs 2m40), but quickly found his way through the field making his way back into third place in just seven laps. After 90 minutes and 36 laps, the checkered-flag waved, securing Tilley and Bryant’s overall podium, as well as first place in the Elite class!

“I’ve had an incredible time here in Tuscany at the Mugello Classic!” said Tilley. “From the moment we got here everything just seemed to come together.”

“The crew has put a massive amount of effort into making sure the car was on the money for the 2.0L Cup season opener, no mean feat considering it is probably the busiest time we’ve ever had at the UK shop right now.”

Two-time 2.0L Cup champion Oliver Bryant shared a similar sentiment after Sunday’s race, saying, “Pole and P3 is a great result for our first race in the 2.0L Cup. It’s a very competitive series and the team did a fantastic job learning the car. Kyle’s opening stint was good, the car didn’t miss a beat and we’re looking forward to Spa.”
