Up to Speed: 22 – 23 October 2022
A raft of British Championship action, including the conclusion of the inaugural British Endurance Championship, headlines the bill on another weekend of motorsport in the UK.
Let’s get you up to speed:
British Endurance Championship – Donington Park (GP)
With no dropped scores left to factor in, Donington Park will play host to a blockbuster finale to the inaugural British Endurance Championship season.
Chris Goddard and Charlie Hollings currently lead the way on 144 points in their RNR Performance-run Ferrari 458, just two points clear of Wayne Marrs and Tom Jackson in the Rob Boston Racing-prepared Mercedes-AMG GT3.
The two race in different classes, and have been regular fixtures on the top step of their respective podiums. The Ferrari is set for a perhaps tougher opposition ‘in class’, so maintaining that winning form will be pivotal for Goddard and Hollings to lift the coveted crown.
Third overall, and finely poised to strike should misfortune befall the two crews ahead is the MKH Racing Aston Martin GT4, in the hands of Peter Montague and Stuart Hall.
