Bake Off star Hollywood races Alfa Romeo
Future British GT driver Paul Hollywood made a guest appearance in the opening rounds of the Alfa Romeo Championship at Snetterton last weekend.
The Great British Bake Off star Hollywood joined the series to gain signatures on his race licence ahead of sharing a Beechdean Motorsport Aston Martin Vantage GT4 with Jamie Chadwick in the final three rounds of British GT later this year.
Hollywood took a best finish of 12th (of 17 finishers) in race one before retiring from race two after the throttle cable broke.
“I really enjoyed it,” said Hollywood. “The need for a signature went out of the window as I enjoyed an early dice and then just wanted to catch the battle ahead.
“I missed the paddleshift of the Aston Martin. Friday was the first time I have driven an Alfa. The car had a new gearbox and brakes overnight and it was fun getting to grips with the racing.”
