A Day of Firsts at the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain

6th April 2013

The Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain got underway on Saturday (6 April) when the season-opener at Silverstone took place. And, with debutant Kevin Norville starting from pole, a maiden win for Andrew Jarman and the Best Overall Performance prize going to newcomer David Tin, it was a day of exciting firsts.

Qualifying took place amid cold and cloudy conditions. The session was headed by the #27 Norville/Lockie car, which set an impressive pace throughout the thirty minutes of qualification. Their quickest time, a 1:00.80 was enough to put them on pole by just under a second; a fine performance for the new pairing which resulted in Kevin starting his first GT4 race at the head of the field.

As if to herald the start of the 2013 Aston Martin GT4 Challenge, the sun came out just in time for the race to begin on Saturday afternoon, bathing the packed-out paddock in very welcome warm glow. The lights went green at just after 2.25pm and 2012 Challenge winner Olivier Bouche took the lead, the position that he and team-mate, TXM Recruit-sponsored Andrew Jarman were to maintain for each of the one hundred minutes.
