The MTECH pairing of Matt Griffin and Duncan Cameron claimed a popular maiden win in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at Silverstone yesterday, their Ferrari 430 Scuderia posting a victory margin of half a minute after two hours of flat-out racing.

ABG Motorsport drivers Aaron Scott and Craig Wilkins drove their Viper to second to keep alive their championship hopes.

Gearbox problems prevented championship leaders David and Godfrey Jones from finishing; their title race lead is cut to a single point with only two rounds remaining.
