Parfitt Jnr and Morris crowned British GT3 champions

Johnston and Adam surrender their title in style at #DoningtonDecider

2017-09-23-0020Rick Parfitt Jnr, Seb Morris, Team Parker Racing and Bentley all claimed their maiden British GT3 titles at Donington Park earlier today, while TF Sport’s out-going champions Derek Johnston and Jonny Adam signed off in style by winning the two-hour enduro.

Adam took the chequered flag 6.9s clear of TF Sport’s sister Aston Martin driven by Mark Farmer and Jon Barnes, while Jon Minshaw and Phil Keen – who were the only crew able to deny Parfitt Jnr and Morris the crown – completed the podium finishers a further 4.1s behind. That was before a post-race investigation determined the Lamborghini had overtaken under yellow flags, which left no choice but to exclude it from the results.

Much was made pre-race of how the Bentley’s 20-second pitstop success penalty might affect the outcome of this year’s title. Instead, the odds had already swung firmly back in Parfitt Jnr and Morris’ favour well before the driver changes began.
