    British GT Championship at Snetterton.





    Championship at Snetterton Rounds 3 & 4. Congratulations to Scott Maxwell and Multimatic Motorsports Europe for grabbing pole. GT4’s first frenetic qualifying session saw the top-13 separated by less than one second but a familiar name on top of the pile: Scott Maxwell. The Canadian twice held provisional pole after initially slipping behind Josh Price’s #95 TF Sport Aston Martin before ultimately maintaining Multimatic’s 100% pole record at the start of 2019.
    Alistair MacKinnon rounded out the top-10 in the second of Multimatic’s Ford Mustangs.
    Both British GT races will be shown live on the championship’s Facebook page, Twitter account and website, plus SRO’s GT World Youtube channel, on Sunday. Equally, a selection of support races will be streamed live on britishgt.com/live throughout the day.

    Multimatic Motorsports had a couple of tough races at Snetterton this weekend, close to the home of its European technical centre in Thetford.

    When Race 1 got underway on Sunday morning, Maxwell got off to a great start in the #15 Mustang, even when battling GT3 cars got in the way of the GT4 race. He slipped down two positions but had regained one of them by the end of the next lap. He stayed on the tail of the leader until the pit window opened and dived in to hand over to Priaulx. This is where the race unravelled as the success penalty from winning the last race at Oulton Park put the #15 right down the order after the stops. Priaulx managed to make up a couple of spots during his stint but had to settle for 13th place at the flag. The #19 Ford Mustang had a similarly difficult race, finishing in 19th position in GT4.



    An uneventful Race 2 gave little opportunity for the Mustangs to make headway but despite this Scott Maxwell managed to hustle the #15 Mustang from 12th to sixth before the flag. The #19 car finished in 13th place in the GT4 class.

    The good news is that it isn’t long for everyone to wait for the next round, which takes place at Silverstone in just two weeks…with no success penalty.

    “We’re carrying a lot more weight since Oulton Park so every pass we make is a desperation move as we have no straight line speed,” said Multimatic Chief Technical Officer, Larry Holt. “Having said that Scott managed to claw his way up to sixth in GT4 so all credit to him.”
