Data Solutions Prosport Returns To British GTs
We were somewhat premature back in May in announcing the end of
the Prosport 3000 in British GT competition.
Ian Stinton intends to enter his previously GTC-classified
car in the GT2 class for the two hour Silverstone International
round on September 24.
This is the
car driven solo by Ian to an excellent second in class at Oulton
Park (the best ever finish by a Prosport in the Championship - photo,
below) and which then led the GTC class at a greasy Donington Park,
in the hands of Simon Pullan.
Since then of course we have seen the protest and
counter protest within the ranks, which resulted in the controversial
decision to place the cars in the GT2 class, where popular opinion
seems to agree they will be off the ultimate pace. That issue is
still rumbling along, in a legal sense.
With GT2 entry
numbers struggling and a two hour race in prospect, Ian Stinton
clearly feels that there is the potential for some giant killing
and he will present his car once again next week.
being collared by dsc’s Editor at Silverstone last weekend,
where his Harrier GT1 car let him down in practice meaning no start
in the Britcar 24 Ian was asked, “Why Harrier, Why Prosport?”
“After a little thinking I've worked out I've
only every raced British cars !! So why change?”

Westfield Race and British Hill Climb
Marcos, Lotus Elise and Prosport in British GTs
Harrier Group C Revival and Britcar
Aston Martin Le Mans 24 hour Support

the Silverstone race.
