The first race appeared to be easy going for Jamie Stanley and John Seale’s JMH-Lamborghini Huracan as they managed to finish a clear lap ahead of the next Endurance runner, the Nissan GT3 of Richard Wheeler and Danny Harrison.

Race 2 saw a slightly different grid compared to race one with the 91 Praga of Jack Fabby and Charlie Martin on the front row alongside the JMH-run Lamborghini Huracan of Jamie Stanley and John Seale. Shortly after the start of the race at the second corner all hell broke loose as a massive shunt saw seven cars eliminated (66, 78, 6, 4, 60, 95, 144) from the race before the first lap was even half way completed. The course car was on hand to guide the cars for what ended up being nearly 20 minutes whilst the Silverstone team cleared the track of wrecked cars. Shortly after the course car left the track the pit window was opened. Jamie Stanley took the rains for the second half of the race and yet again steered the Lamborghini Huracan to a comfortable win. The Team Praga Three Lions Praga R1 of Gordie Mutch and Abbie Eaton took second place and the overall win for the Praga category. The Nissan GT3 of Fox Transport as driven by Richard Wheeler and Danny Harrison taking a well deserve third place.
