GT Academy Winners in Action This Weekend

GT AcademyMotorsports 11 June 23, 2012 by

As the 2012 GT Academy qualifier draws to a close, the most recent graduates are in action again on opposite sides of the Atlantic.

Racing yesterday at Road America in Wisconsin was Bryan Heitkotter and his teammate BJ Zacharias. Running in the Grand Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Bryan managed to secure a second successive front row start for the #14 Doran Racing 370Z with a 2’24.144 laptime – just 0.029s from pole – and only had one lap in which to set the time! The team managed to bring the car home seventh overall, after seven cautions in the 2hr30 race – including one on the opening lap following a massive start line crash in the ST class.

Over in the United Kingdom, Jann Mardenborough and Alex Buncombe are competing in the 4th Round of the British GT series at the Brands Hatch GP Circuit in Kent. Following this afternoon’s qualifying, the team start in 10th place overall – setting a laptime of 1’26.333, half a second from pole. The 2 hour race gets underway at 13.10 UTC/GMT on Sunday 24th June and with the team fifth in the championship they will be keen for their maiden win this season!

Those of you wishing to join Jann, Bryan, Lucas and Jordan have a little over 28 hours to get your times in and all players must be registered to move forward to the next round of the competition. Please remember to fill out the required forms on your local gran-turismo.com website.
