GT Cup race to be rescheduled
The GT Cup sprint race at Oulton Park was abandoned last weekend after a first corner incident resulted in significant delays to the timetable.
Darren Nelson’s Lamborghini Huracan crashed heavily into the barriers on the exit of Old Hall corner at the start of the race after contact with John Dhillon’s Ferrari 458 Challenge, with the Lotus Evora GTE of Gareth Downing and Tom Webb’s BMW M3 E46 GTR also being caught up in the aftermath.
With all three cars suffering heavy damage, there were insufficient recovery vehicles to collect all of the stricken cars in one attempt, leading to a delay of more than 30 minutes in the timetable.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, race three for the GT Cup Championship will be rescheduled at a later date,” said a statement from organiser MSVR.
There are options to run the race at Donington Park in August, Silverstone in September or Snetterton in October.
