Flick Haigh has made history by becoming the first Woman to win a race in the British GT Championship with a victory at a wet and cold Oulton Park this Easter Monday.
Driving with Aston Martin works driver Jonny Adam, Haigh started from pole and led her leg of the race before handing over to Adam who drove through to the historic win.
It was Haig’s first ever British GT race.
Race 2 will see the Lamborghini of Phil Keen on pole ahead of Jonny Adam and Marco Sorensen.
The same Barwell Lamborghini had topped final practice earlier in the day and made good on that promise by lapping in 1m32.869s. That was a tenth under Seb Morris’ previous benchmark and ultimately 0.159s faster than Adam, who secured Optimum’s second front row of the weekend.
The Scot’s AMR factory counterpart Sorensen was just 0.009s further back in the first of TF Sport’s Aston Martins, while the second – driven by Nicki Thiim – was another half-tenth behind.
Yelmer Buurman’s ERC Sport Mercedes-AMG took fifth but was less than 0.3s shy of Keen, and Callum Macleod backed up co-driver Loggie’s third place by claiming sixth for Race 2.
Darren Turner, Patrick Kujala and Maxime Martin completed a top-nine covered by a second, while Jonny Cocker bounced back from an accident in final practice to seal 10th after Barwell rebuilt their Lamborghini between sessions.
