Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
