Brands Hatch Night Race

Overview of Round 8 at Brands Hatch, Dunlop Endurance Championship, 13th November 2016

Car 46 INGSport BMW Z4 GT3

What a fantastic end to the Britcar season!

Whilst the annual trip to Brands is a long haul for most of the INGSport crew, it is always the one we look forward to the most. We have so many great memories of our Championship winning years in 2008 and 2013.

Our weekend started on Friday morning with a team chat to try and redistribute some tasks as we were missing two valuable guys, Kamil and Carlos. After the R&R's had been settled we got on with some wet weather running to "check the prep" and balance the Z. Apart from some minor issues, all was well.

A long wait till nightfall followed before we could do some nighttime running in FP,  but as always the boys found ways to keep busy. So alongside numerous cups of tea the truck was washed, the storage bays were cleaned, re packed, and all reusable tyres were cleaned off too! Eventually nightfall arrived and we could get out on track to check light settings and get a taste of the Z at night. Not something either Ian or Kevin had ever done. Conditions were very greasy and it wasn't long before the red flag was out. However the Z was showing good pace and at one point was the fastest on track. A good productive day all round.

The season finale of the Dunlop Endurance Championship is almost upon us! We are really looking forward to this weekend at Brands Hatch. The circuit is a firm favourite of ours and after the remarkable events at Oulton Park, we are looking forward to another challenge. And a challenge it will certainly be as this final round will see 16 endurance teams race "into the night" as a result of daylight saving.

Overview of Round 7 at Oulton Park, Dunlop Endurance Championship, 1st October 2016

The Oulton Park trip did not start too well! Friday test proved problematic due to noise, and the day didn't get any easier when remnant damage from the Croft round showed itself. Fortunately, the guys did a great job in solving the issues and again proved that no matter the obstacles, we remain united as a team.

 INGSport have had a busy summer! We hope you've all had a good one too.

We have spent time repairing and respraying the car. We also exhibited at the BMW Car Club National Festival in Gaydon in August.

Not only that but we have been thinking about what 2017 has in store for INGSport and had talks with potential sponsors for next year, and we've even squeezed in a holiday or two!

Overview of Round 5 at Croft, Dunlop Endurance Championship, 23rd July 2016

Last weekend at Croft really proved just what this little team is capable of. Having overcome some niggly problems through the first half of the season this weekend seemed to unfold in a more measured way. The team had a solid test day on Friday which provided some much needed track time as the Z4 had not visited the circuit before. It also gave Ian some extra time in the car which proved so valuable in the race. The team was also pleased to welcome the "new boy" Carlos, a Masters Graduate from Oxford Brookes University, he has a font of knowledge to help in the data analysis and his ongoing input is greatly anticipated.
