Olly wins BRDC Secretary’s Challenge

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.

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.
