GT Cup, Silverstone
A Good Start For Gardiner

Mike Gardiner wiped the memories of a horrendous 2008 in the #57 Moore Racing Viper by claiming a storming victory in the first of the two GT Cup races at a very sunny Silverstone yesterday; and was thwarted in making it a double only by an oil-leak that made visibility extremely difficult - his racing experience still enabling him to claim third place.

Michael Donovan won the second race in the #49 In2Racing Porsche after a second-placed finish in the first, with the #51 Xero Competition Corvette C5R of Mitch Millett claiming the remaining podium place in each race.

In Class 2, Pete Morris put in a typically robust performance in the #9 ABG Porsche 997 to record a second and a first in class; Glenn McMenamin taking the win in the first race in the #82 Parr Motorsport Porsche.

Class three honours were shared between the #55 ABG Porsche 996 of Gary Eastwood and David Mayes and the #77 996 of Peter Heintzelman.

The only double winner of the meeting was Will Goff, who took both Class 4 wins in the #59 Stratton Motor Company Aston Martin GT4.

Elsewhere, Jeff Leadley, in the #34 F.F Corse Ferrari 430 Challenge GT, managed two top six finishes in Class 2 despite this incident:

But Arwyn Williams was less fortunate; his racing coming to an end after 15 laps when his diffuser parted company from the #12 JMH Ferrari 430 GT3 in spectacular fashion shortly after this photo was taken:

Fortunately, the errant part missed following cars, but the damage prevented Williams from taking part in race two.
