Trophy Round 5 Race 2 Report: Lee and Hizzey Win a Race of One Half

CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Trophy Category will again run under a class structure, but with shorter races and no refuelling, open to any car whose performance does not match a GT4 or TCR car. Races will each include a mandatory pitstop, allowing cars to be shared with two drivers if preferred. Trophy will share some weekends with Endurance but will also become the headline event on others. The mandated tyre is the Direzza trackday tyre, negating the extra cost of separate sets for wet and dry conditions.
