Brands Hatch Rounds 3 and 4


Time for the second meeting of the season already! The Hartech Team will be trekking down to Kent in force for this weekend’s Racing event. After the great performance by each one of the drivers at Donington Park Circuit, we have high hopes for this race.

Marcus, along with Stuart and Tom, will be going down to the track early for a final test day in order to fine tune the cars and the drivers, hopefully helping to get both onto podium positions in their respective classes. Gary, being the more seasoned driver in the team and an instructor to, has visited Brands Hatch more regularly than the other drivers however will be joining them for the afternoon session of the test day.

This will be the first time Marcus has raced for Hartech on this track, as last year he was still recovering from an arm injury that prevented him from racing.  Although this is not Marcus’ favourite track he has had some great results here in the Porsche Club Championship,  including coming 3rd overall in 2007 (in a class 2 car!) and 2nd overall in 2010 (the last time he raced here).

The fault that caused Tom to retire from Race 2 at Donington has now been fixed so with the car under him that took Hartech’s sole Boxster S race win in 2012 he should be in prime condition to take on the current leader Pete Morris once again.
The day will be another early start for the team with qualifying at 9:00 am race one at 12:35 and race two 5:05 pm.

But overall the day looks set to be a good one with sunny weather forecast and plenty of Hob-Nobs packed, what a great way to spend the Bank Holiday weekend!
