The bad luck that has impeded Seb Morris in this year’s British GT Championship continued at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium on Sunday, when two penalties and a tyre blow-out on his Bentley Continental GT3 ruined any hopes of a champagne-spraying podium finish. With his JRM team-mate Rick Parfitt Jnr having to serve a stop/go penalty early in the 120-minute race following contact with a Lamborghini, a second penalty had to be served during hour two after officials deemed the mid-race pit-stop to have been fractionally too short. Incredibly, a puncture with around 20 minutes to run added real insult to injury and necessitated a third unscheduled stop. Wrexham-born Morris eventually went on to take the chequered flag in an exasperating 12th position.
Damian Cole has extended his lead in the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship to 32 points, after a fantastic drive on the Carryduff Forklift Down Rally. The Abergavenny driver started a little too cautiously on a very wet and slippery opening stage, but after that he flew over the fast and bumpy closed country lanes of Northern Ireland in his Get Connected/Energizer-backed Ford Fiesta WRC. Co-driven by Paul Spooner, Cole couldn’t quite regain all the time he’d lost on the first stage to John Stone (Fiesta WRC), but second place points strengthens his title challenge.
