Westbrook Seals Another Win for Trackspeed Racing
Spa-Francorchamps, 8th July 2011
Richard Westbrook returned to the British GT Championship this weekend, once again partnering David Ashburn in the Number 1 Trackspeed Porsche of Trackspeed Racing.
Westbrook and Ashburn sealed a Race One victory, thanks to some deft pitwork by the Trackspeed team and masterly handling of the traffic by both drivers. A mid-race safety car period – brought into play when cars from some of the other championships involved in the race fell by the wayside – gave all the frontrunners the opportunity to pit together for their driver changes; Westbrook took over in front after the stops and handled the restart perfectly to pull a five-second gap over the chasing pack to secure the win.
