Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish GT ran on the shorter Rock­ing­ham lay­out for the first time in five years last week­end. The cham­pi­onship usu­ally runs on the 2.05-mile In­ter­na­tional Su­per Sportscar Long vari­ant, but re­verted to the 1.9-mile con­fig­u­ra­tion for the first time since 2011. “Most teams do their test­ing on the shorter track so we de­cided to race on it to make their data rel­e­vant,” said Bri­tish GT man­ager Ben­jamin Franasso­vici. “We had a few in­stances with traf­fic in the race, but Rock­ing­ham is wide enough for over­tak­ing. It seemed pop­u­lar with most.”
