Double British GT champion Andrew Howard and reigning British GT4 champion Ross Gunn were denied a podium position after damage with a GT4 car blunted their charge.
The GT3 pairing were in the mix for a podium position during the first two hours of the race. However a slight coming together with a GT4 car and tyre strategies going awry in the changeable conditions meant the Beechdean Aston Martin Vantage V12 Vantage GT3 car had to settle for a disappointing ninth place.
Ross Gunn “The Silverstone 500 with unsettled weather and lots of GT4 traffic can often be regarded as a lottery. Things were initially looking promising for Andrew and I but unfortunately things didn’t pan out that way. The pace was strong however, making me excited for Spa.”
Andrew Howard “In changeable conditions and a grid of 51 cars, many things can go wrong.Our pace was strong but damage resulting from a GT4 incident meant the result does not reflect this – on to Le Mans.”
