 Last weekend saw what has to be the pinnicle in GT3 endurance racing visit the Northamptonshire country side in the form of the Blancpain Endurance Series. Fifty odd GT3 cars took to the full Silverstone GP circuit, in varying conditions they battled to the top of the timing sheets. Saturday saw strong running from both Aston Martin and Mercedes, come qualification on Sunday one of the only Porsche entrants would put it on pole for the three hour race later on in the day. Following support packages from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo the GT3 took to the track, the start was something else! Eventually after three hours of racing Bentley M-Sport would cross the line first and take a historic win. Fantastic performance from a car in its first full year of competitive racing.
