GT Academy Graduate Jann Mardenborough Wins at Brands Hatch

GT AcademyMotorsports 39 June 25, 2012 by

On the day GT Academy 2012 drew to a close the most recent graduate, Jann Mardenborough, showed the participants what it’s all about by taking a maiden win at the British GT series for RJN Motorsport – 365 days after he won Sony’s competition.

Starting the 2 hour feature race at Brands Hatch’s GP Circuit in tenth position, Jann’s teammate Alex Buncombe took the first stint and managed to take the big Nissan GT-R GT3 into the lead in yet another rain-drenched opening 2 laps. An ill-timed safety car period before the pit-stop window shook the order up a bit and left Jann with work to do for his session. He soon hit the front himself and, despite serious attention from the cars behind, brought the car home first – just. In what was the closest finish in British GT history, Jann beat the second place #007 Aston Martin by 0.022s!

The RJN Motorsport team are now third overall in the British GT standings, just half a point from second, with four races left of the season.
