Mclaren’s record

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Sandy Mitchell made his­tory at Sil­ver­stone by be­com­ing the youngest driver ever to record a pole po­si­tion in Bri­tish GT. Aged just 16 years and 100 days, Mitchell achieved the record when he helped the Ecurie Ecosse Mclaren 570S GT4 to pole along­side team-mate Ciaran Haggerty. “It’s a great re­sult, be­cause so far this year we’ve been miss­ing that cru­cial piece of luck,” he said. “It’s a nice record to have.” Sadly the duo’s race didn’t go as well. They led the early stages but fell back af­ter be­ing caught be­hind the sec­ond safety car and then suf­fered an en­gine is­sue.
