The final weekend of the year. Brands Hatch, our home circuit. Much like Silverstone it was a damp start to the weekend. A drying track in qualifying meant some gambled for slicks and some stayed on wets. We gambled and ended top of the slick tyre runners, lining up 4th for race 1.
In race 1, the heavens opened but luckily the luck shone down with it, a soaking wet race sailed us home for another podium.
Race 2 on Sunday was another tester for the conditions, we gambled on slicks but this time it was just too wet, we finished P10 but with nothing to lose, it was worth the shot.
Race 3, the final race of 2019. Starting P10 we fought our way up to P5 but it wasn't meant to be, contact with another competitor on the final lap meant we couldn't finish the final race of the year, a disappointing one after all our hard work. 5th overall in the standings having missed the first weekend of the year and top rookie.
I am truly grateful for all we have done in 2019, we'll see you soon.

The home of British Motorsport, Silverstone. Weekend number 6 and our penultimate of 2019. Our weekend started on damp note, on track and in results, a greasy track paving the way for our first pole position.. only to be disallowed for track limits penalitites, we started 4th for race 1 of the weekend.
Despite the penalty we felt we had strong pace and in race 1 we certainly proved it, with another podium and further points gained on 4th in the standings, it was hotting up. However, the rest of the weekend wasn't to be, penalties for track limits infringements in races 2&3 really put a spoil on our weekend, we left with our heads held high, knowing what we could've achieved. We move onto Brands Hatch in 2 weeks time for the final rounds of 2019.
It was the long trip to Scotland for our 5th weekend of the 2019 season.
After a good qualifying, it was once again just about scoring points in our 3 races to try and secure 4th place in the drivers' standings and top privateers.
After 2 strong results in races 1&2 it again fell to race 3 to give us our best result of the weekend.
Another 2nd place trophy and a third podium of the year for us made the long drive home a happy one.
We go into the upcoming round at Silverstone on the 28th & 29th of Septemeber as top privateers and just 40 points off 4th place, having taken 55 points out of the 4th place margin at Knockhill.
It's set to be an exciting one at the home of British Motorsport.
It was the UK's fastest circuit, Thruxton, that set the scene for the 4th round of our 2019 season.
After strong pace at Oulton Park, we knew we had a good chance of a good weekend. Unfortunately, the gremlins from Oulton followed us here, power steering failure during qualifying meant we started Race 1 from our worst start of the season in 5th place.
After 2 solid drives in Races 1&2 with 4th & 5th, it all came down to Race 3. We led the race for 14 laps until we lost the lead and came home in 2nd place. Another strong end to a testing weekend.
It was Oulton Park which set the stage for our 3rd race weekend of the 2019 season. With our best qualifying to date, we lined in 2nd place for the first of our races. After a good start, we comfortably kept 2nd place keeping up with the leader until we had an oil pressure sensor failure, ending our chances of what could've been our second podium. Our fightback in race 2 resulted in 5th place from 10th around a track which is notoriously difficult to overtake. A positive end but we were left with the thoughts of what could've been.
Finally, with our own car, we headed to Croft for our second race weekend of 2019. After a positive display in qualifying with 4th place, we picked up our first podium of the season in only our 4th race start in the championship.

It was back to Donington for the first rounds of our 2019 season with the Ginetta GT4 Supercup. After a last-minute entry and a big rush to prepare ourselves. With an eye-catching qualifying performance and two top 6 pro class finishes, we look forward to Croft in 5 weeks time!
