FF Corse entered a total of six cars for the second round of the Dunlop Britcar Endurance & Sprint Championships, held at Snetterton over the weekend.

The cars were entered for the Endurance and Sprint races and achieved considerable success, winning a total 6 overall and class wins throughout both Championships.

 

The first wins came in the first 50 minute race, with Bon Grimes & Johnny Mowlem leading the FF Corse Sextet home to win Class 2 of the Endurance Championship, in their Ferrari 458 Challenge GTC. The similar car of Marc Brough and Andrew Bentley won the same class in the Sprint Championship and the David Mason & Calum Lockie entry also won Class 1 in the Sprint division, after snatching the lead at the start of the race. Of other notable points was the Mike Wilds & Dino Zamparelli driver pairing, who put up a strong fight in race one in their Ferrari to take the fight to Bon & Johnny.

 

In the 2hr Endurance race held the same day, Bon Grimes & Johnny Mowlem again upheld FF Corse honours to take the Class 2 win and move to second place in the overall Championship (2 points behind the leader). The Graham Lucking/Leyton Clarke entry was a fighting second in class and challenged strongly throughout the race.

In the second 50 minute sprint race Laurent de Meeus and Jamie Stanley secured their debut first win together, winning overall as well as taking a well-earned class victory. David Mason & Calum Lockie again secure the Class 1 honours in their FF Corse Ferrari 458 GT3.

The next round of the Dunlop Endurance Championship takes place at Silverstone on June 24th.
