Alfaholics Finish On The Podium @ Silverstone Classic July 2014
This was a tough weekend’s racing in our FIA App.K GTA after an issue in qualifying left us outside the top 5 on the grid and doubtful of a good result. In the 50 minute 2 driver race, Andrew battled door to door with several Cortinas in the first half of the race, ultimately losing out on raw laptime to retain track position. A blisteringly quick driver change got us into 4th place and running in clear air for a lap, when Jackie Oliver exited the pits in his BMW 1800 Tisa directly in front of our GTA. It looked to be a re-run of Donington, with our GTA behind the BMW again, battling for track position. After 20 minutes of ‘hard but fair’ door to door racing (a real delight!) Max managed to get past Jackie and secure 3rd place overall, yet another podium for Alfaholics in U2TC! A superb result in the end!
