Strong start: Optimum seeking more as British GT resumes at Snetterton
The Silver-Silver pairing of Ollie Wilkinson and Bradley Ellis have enjoyed a superb start to the British GT Championship with Optimum Motorsport in the new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and are currently fourth in the overall standings. The duo also lead the Silver Cup, heading to Snetterton this coming weekend for the double-header.
With additional ballast courtesy of running two FIA graded Silver drivers, the third and sixth positions in the opening races of the season was especially significant.
While the GT3 team had a good outing at Oulton Park, it was a harder weekend for the two new GT4 parings but at the end of the weekend Connor O’Brien and Jack Butel got their new partnership off to a strong start with a pair of sixth placed finishes in the #35 Aston Martin Vantage GT4, while teammates Patrik Matthiesen and Mike Robinson secured an 11th and fifth in the two rounds.
