Fourth on Donington Grid for Modena

Team Modena will line up in fourth place on the grid for today’s final round of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, Ben de Zille Butler and Guy Harrington putting the number eleven Lamborghini Gallardo on the second row of the grid at Donington Park. With one 30-minute session to decide the grid for tomorrow’s two-hour race, Ben ran in the first part in light rain, while Guy made the most of the drying track late in the session to set the car’s best time.

“The start of the session was interesting,” said Ben, “it was never really raining but there was a lot of spray on the windscreen at some points of the circuit. It was dry enough for normal breaking, but you had to be careful putting the power on. A Ginetta spun past me at one point and disappeared from my view, and I had to back off then in case he came back on in front of me. We are fourth on the grid and the times are close – so it is looking for tomorrow and we are really pleased.”

“I enjoyed that,” said Guy, “the car was handling superbly and the engine felt strong. It was slippery when I first went out, but it got better and the car was fantastic, the team have done a good job.”
