KNUTSFORD racer Michael Igoe was in action as, after a long four-month wait, Oulton Park welcomed the return of the delayed British GT 2020 season kick off in glorious sunshine, writes Ste McNorton.

In a beautiful WPI Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in the Pro Am Class, Igoe finished 11th in race one after a long battle with the Team Parker Racing Bentley.

He was ninth in race two after receiving a 30-second penalty for an earlier incident.

The teams had Thursday and Friday to test and get some track time in, albeit behind closed doors.

Then on Saturday and Sunday, returning fans got to see some amazing cars thundering around the Cheshire circuit.

In the main event, 2 Seas Motorsport with their two stunning McLarens 720S’s welcomed Nantwich’s Jordan Witt into the team and, boy, what a start he made, qualifying just 0.001 seconds behind the eventual polesitter.

From the off, Witt was glued to the rear wing of the leader, but at around the halfway stage when the leader pitted, Witt carried on hoping for the undercut and to gain the lead when they stopped.

When they did pit, second driver Jack Mitchell retained the lead of the race due to Witt’s stunning pace.

Unfortunately, all this hard work was in vain though as an infringement in the pit lane saw the No10 McLaren hit with a 10-second stop-and-go penalty which subsequently dropped them into fourth but were again penalised for speeding in the pit lane and finished 11th.

Race two was later in the day and again in great weather.

The No 10 McLaren of Jordan Witt eventually finish fourth after the Barwell Motorsport Lamborghinis had disappeared into the distance.
