Young lions Brown and Hall keep Mosler roaring
Tuesday 14 April 2009
The young lions of the British GT Championship, 17-year-old Daniel Brown and his 24-year-old team-mate Stuart Hall, made it two out of two at Oulton Park yesterday, their Momo Mosler following up its Saturday win with another resounding victory.
The new Rollcentre Racing pairing, one of the youngest seen in the series, led all the way in Saturday's opening race of the season, but they had to play second fiddle to the Allan Simonsen/Hector Lester Ferrari for the first half of the one-hour race. Dane Simonsen was the early leader, the Rosso Verde team driver overhauling pole man Hall at the start and hanging on in front all the way to the mid-race pit stops. "I had no brakes at the first corner," said Hall. "We had no time to bed in the new pads during the pre-race warm-up."
Brown completed his first lap at the wheel of the Mosler 2.8sec behind the Ferrari, now in the hands of the veteran Lester, and was just sizing him up to pass when Lester spun off. Brown romped home to a 21-second win.
Lester regained the track, but his grip on a good finish was loosened in the closing laps, first by David Jones, who snatched second in his Ascari, and then by the Craig Wilkins Viper.
