Beechdean take British GT race two at Snetterton

Race two Start (photo by Marc Waller)The Beachdean Aston Martin team of Jonny Adam and Andrew Horward have taken race two honours here at Snetterton.

The race was restarted after a huge shunt between the Kinfaun and HPR Aston Martins and the Triple Eight BMW of Luke Hines caused massive barrier damage. The three cars made contact going into Riches and went off at almost unabated speed into the tyre wall which was severely deformed. All the drivers were unhurt although the same couldn’t be said for their cars. The rebuilding work took nearly an hour meaning the race was reduced to fifty five minutes.
