Julian Westwood picks up some silverware, but tough times for Seb, Jake, & Andy at Spa by Rob Allender & Marc Orme


Welsh drivers including Seb Morris, Jake Rattenbury, Julian Westwood & Andy Meyrick were in action this weekend at Spa, but only Julian tasted success.


 Seb Morris was in action in the latest rounds of the the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup, and Jake Rattenbury drving a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560 was in action in the Lamborghini Trofeo Europe, which are part of the support package to the main business of the weekend,  the Total Oils 24 Hours of Spa which is a round of the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series, the 90th anniversary of the Belgian endurance classic, but neither driver had a lot to write home about! Seb had a dsappointing race, with steering problem & then got wiped out.

However an unfortunate start saw damage and unscheduled pit stops to both Bentley cars within the first two hours! Starting the race in P6 after the first two hours saw the cars having to fight back from P50! and P55. The chequered flag saw the 7 car of Guy Smith, Andy Meyrick and Steven Kane finish P13.With no mechanical issues during the race, the Continental GT3’s performance and reliability proved itself.
