Team Parker Racing fastest at Snetterton for the British GT Championship’s Media Day
Team Parker Racing went fastest at Snetterton for the British GT Championship’s annual Media Day on Tuesday, with Seb Morris topping the timesheets.
In an unchanged entry from last season in which he will rejoin co-driver Rick Parfitt Jr., Morris set the pace in the No. 31 Bentley Continental GT3 at the Norfolk circuit, with three test sessions taking place over the course of the day.
Their fastest time was a 1:48.950 during the second session, with the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 of Barwell Motorsport drivers Liam Griffin and Sam Tordoff setting the second-best time of the day soon after.
The morning session was dominated by the Nos. 1 and 24 Aston Martin Vantage GT3s of TF Sport and Macmillan AMR respectively, with reigning champions Jonny Adam and Derek Johnston going 0.019 seconds quicker eventually.
Meanwhile, Barwell managed to go one better in the final session of the day, as Griffin and Tordoff’s car was listed four-tenths quicker than the Ginetta G55 GT3 of Parker Chase and Charlie Robertson.
While not listed on either the Media Day or full-season entry list, or with a confirmed entry for the season, Ebor GT was present on Tuesday with its Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4, and became the fastest in its class by the end of the day.
Matty Graham drove the No. 60 Maserati by himself, setting a time of 1:58.369 in the second session to beat new team HHC Motorsport, which was second-fastest in GT4 with the session-topping time in the morning.
