Superb weekend for Reade
Superb weekend for Reade

Kent’s Luke Reade had an excellent weekend last time out in the 2023 Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT Championship at Silverstone.

A cancelled race one meant that Reade had it all to play for in race two on the GP circuit, taking his fourth victory of the season.

Giving his thoughts on the weekend, a delighted Reade said: “A fantastic weekend in Northampton. With limited running due to the budgetary issues, we had a productive Friday which was interrupted with intermittent weather.

“We still were slightly on the back foot going into qualifying. The heavens had opened and the track was filled with puddles of standing water.
We qualified P3 which we were happy with all things considered. The race later that day was cancelled due to rain getting heavier and heavier all day.

“Race two, lining up P3 we got a great launch straight into P2 challenging for the lead into the first corner. Closely following the leader into turn two, the car in front suddenly decelerated going into one of the fastest corners on the track.

“It turns out the brake lights were not working on the car and we touched mid-corner resulting in a half spin from the car in front and some minor damage on the front of our car.

“The safety car came out for an accident that happened behind. After a few laps behind the safety car, we got the race underway. Pulling a nice gap to the chasing pack, we brought the car home for our 4th win of the season!

“Honestly, the Grand Prix circuit was fantastic to drive on. We are heading back to Silverstone in just under a month for the Ginetta festival. Which will include 5 races! Seems a bit mad being truthful, more like go kart heats! But we will be there ready to attack all 5 races.”
