Round 2: Donington Park, 6-8 May
The invitation-entry Team LNT Ginetta G55 of Mike Simpson and marque boss Lawrence Tomlinson won the second round at Donington Park, finishing half a lap ahead of Lee Mowle and George Murrells, who collected a maximum points haul.
Andy Schulz’s Ferrari 430, Mike Millard’s Rapier SR2 and Javier Morcillo’s Azteca/Strata21 Mosler led the way early on but the Ferrari hit trouble at its first pit stop and the Rapier failed due to a mystery electrical glitch. The Mosler eventually finished third, with Manuel Cintrano and Paul White tiptoeing around on full wet tyres.
Class 2 fell to the Topcats Marcos Mantis of Neil Huggins and Owen O’Neill, while the Class 3 honours went to Green/Byford/Adams trio. Meanwhile Steve Guglielmi and Michael Caine’s Lotus Elise lived up to expectations, sealing the Class 4 honours and taking fifth in the overall results.
