Stratton Motorsport entered 5 cars for the AMOC Rockingham Speedway race last weekend 23rd – 25th June 2017:
4 Aston Martin GT4 cars and the now acclaimed Lotus Evora GT4e
Friday practice sessions forced the team to work late into the night to change the cars geometry to suit the banked oval part of the circuit.
Saturday qualifying justified the late night with all 5 cars heading the top 5 slots on the grid.
The race saw the Lotus from pole position take a commanding lead, but with the 20 sec added penalty to the pit stop and a drive through penalty, this brought all the cars closer again.
When the chequered flag fell at the end, it was the works Lotus crossing the line first, followed by the 4 Astons, Chris Kemp, Tom Black, David Tinn & Robin Marriot.
For the team it was the first time ever they have had 3 drivers on the winner’s podium together & the first time all of the team’s cars crossed the finish line in the top 5 positions!
Thanks to all the drivers and to Gavan Kershaw for again showing the pace of the works Lotus.
The team principle Roger Bennington, commented after the race that it was a very proud day for him and justification for all the investment and hard work by all his staff.
