KNUTSFORD Racer Michael Igoe was certainly not feeling like a weekend off as he and teammate Phil Keen took their WPI Motorsport Lamborghini Huracan GT3 to Cheshire circuit Oulton Park for the latest round of the GT Cup, writes Ste McNorton.

After a previous tough weekend at Silverstone in their main British GT Championship series, the team took this opportunity to get some more track time to see were the Huracan’s speed was needing improvement.

A glorious test day on Friday gave the team a full session in the dry and allowed them to get any gremlins ironed out.

Saturday, albeit expected, was a very different story on the weather front, it was wet, very wet in fact, but it was the same for everyone and Igoe knew it would be a great battle with series leaders Sam and Richard Neary in their stunning ABBA Racing Mercedes.

After a 15-minute warm up, the cars were straight into qualifying and even though conditions were tough Igoe and Keen secured second on the grid.

So onto race one, and it had dried up a bit but still teams were running wet tyres.

The rolling start was an epic site as the cars blasted into Old Hall Corner at 100+ mph, and it was championship leader Sam Neary who hit the front, as Igoe settled into second.

This was the story of the first half of the race, then after the mandatory pit stop, Igoe’s teammate Keen was absolutely flying and soon caught the leader and swept into P1.

There were no more challenges for the new leader as the WPI Motorsport Lamborghini pulled away to take a brilliant win.

Race two saw a similar battle between the two British GT regulars but this time it was the ABBA Racing Mercedes that took the spoils, but still a great weekend for Igoe and his teammate.

So again it is a quick turnaround as the team heads to Donington to prepare for round three of the British GT Championship were Igoe hopes he will be back on the pace.
