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.

After 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?”

Why indeed. Stinton’s roll of honour includes:
Westfield Race and British Hill Climb
Radicals
Marcos, Lotus Elise and Prosport in British GTs
Harrier Group C Revival and Britcar
Aston Martin Le Mans 24 hour Support
Spice C1 and Spice C2 Group C/GTP.

Ian Stinton is looking for a suitably qualified second driver for the Silverstone race.
