Troubles for Bryant in the Silverstone 24 hrs!

Oliver Bryant competed in the Britcar 24hrs for the third time. He was driving a Marcos Mantis fitted with the mighty LS7 Corvette engine. This power was to cause trouble though.

Oliver was sharing driving duties with father Grahame, Howard Spooner and Laurence Bilton. Oliver lined the ill-handling car up 13th on the 60 car grid with a 2m01.6s lap. During night qualifying, Howard Spooner left the circuit with a puncture and grass filled the radiator overheating the engine. A new engine had to be located and installed in the car. This was completed with 5 minutes to spare and Oliver took the start and ran within the top 10 until the first of a series of problems began.
