    British GT Championship teams and drivers were tested by the unpredictable Spa-Francorchamps weather as the series returned to the iconic Belgian circuit for the first time in two years.

    Free Practice

    In a wet opening session, it was an intra-team battle at the top of the GT3 class, with 2 Seas Motorsport’s Phil Keen prevailing over team-mate Maxi Götz. The pair traded fastest laps, with Keen ultimately setting a best time of 2m34.668s to edge out Götz’s 2m36.092s. Raffaele Marciello split the 2 Seas Mercedes-AMGs, going third fastest in the RAM Racing BMW M4 GT3.

    In GT4, CWS Racing’s Thomas Holland was the surprise package, topping the times with a 2m45.980s lap in his Ginetta G56 GT4 Evo, outpacing the Optimum Motorsport McLaren Arturas of Jack Brown and Zac Meakin.


    As the track began to dry, Barwell Motorsport’s Ricky Collard made the most of the changing conditions, setting a blistering 2m18.093s lap to top the timesheets in his Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo2. Audi driver Hugo Cook was second, just 0.488s adrift, with Barwell’s Sandy Mitchell and Callum Macleod in the Greystone GT McLaren rounding out the top four.

    In GT4, Mahiki Racing’s Gordie Mutch was the pacesetter, posting a 2m30.083s lap in the Lotus Emira to lead the Silver Cup-winning Century Motorsport BMW M4 GT4 of Jack Brown and Zac Meakin.

    The British GT Championship action continues with a nail-biting qualifying session later today, setting the stage for what promises to be an exciting race at the iconic Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
