Despite only coming fourth in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship race at Donington Park on September 30th, Motorbase’s Michael Caine and Daniele Perfetti were crowned overall champions.
Perfetti and Caine took the GT3 title by a margin of 3.5 points in what proved to be a close race.
Caine said: “It was great to give Motorbase the championship, and Daniele has had an outstanding year – from where he’s come on from, the Carrera Cup is amazing – he’s done a great job.”
The win came as a surprise to Caine as he explained that his earphones were not working so he was unable to hear his team and ascertain where he was in the race until he had crossed the finishing line.
Earlier in the day, Caine had managed to record the fastest warm-up lap in his Motorbase Porsche, recording a time of 1:38.246, despite the rainy and overcast conditions he had to contend with.
