Lewis Hamilton watches brother make racing debut
Monday 04 April 2011
Former Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton paid a visit to Brands Hatch over the weekend to watch his younger brother Nicolas make his racing debut.
The McLaren driver, accompanied by his father Anthony, saw Nicolas compete in his first races in the Clio Cup, a supporting series to the British Touring Car Championship, which kicked off the 2011 season yesterday. Nicolas made steady progress in the races, finishing 12th and then 15th.
In the BTCC, last year's champion Jason Plato started where he had finished the 2010 season by winning the first two races in his Chevrolet Cruze. After win number 61 in the first of yesterday's three races at Brands, Plato became the most successful driver in the championship's history overtaking the record of Andy Rouse.
