Round One of the inaugural Britcar Prototype Cup saw Praga drivers fill every step of the podium after all three races, while setting the fastest lap times across all categories. Race One saw Formula One test and reserve driver, Rodolfo González, take the grid by storm as he battled with the race leader, Charles Hall, in torrential rain, and was first to the chequered flag on his Praga racing debut, after eight years out of competition.
Shane Kelly from University of Wolverhampton Racing also made race report headlines after taking the win in Race Two in the wet, before setting the fastest lap out of every car on the track over the weekend in Race Three: just 1 min 57.239 seconds.
Race Three was won by Ben Stone and Teddy Wilson for team TGM with Private Leads with race day podium places also going to Charles Hall and Scott Mittell for Mittell Cars, Chris Bridle and Will Stowell for Idola Motorsport, and Jessica Hawkins, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team Driver Ambassador, newly signed to University of Wolverhampton Racing (UWR).
