“This was the first race weekend we’ve had with the all-new Huracan Evo2,” Sandy, a Lamborghini factory driver and member of the British Racing Drivers’ Club, stated, “and we’re all taking time to adapt to the 2023 race car. “We took away some really strong positives in relation to the car and we’ll head to the the next round, the three-hour race at Silverstone next month, armed with a lot more information.”
Sandy has twice won the British GT’s Blue Riband race at the famous circuit. Sandy and new team-mate Shaun Balfe’s #78 Barwell Lamborghini started both 60-minute races at Outon Park in Cheshire from seventh on the 36-car grid. In miserable wet and cold conditions, Bale took the opening stint in Race 1 — his first behind the wheel of the Lamborghini — and had slid back to 10th as the rain fell more heavily before handing the car to Sandy. He rejoined in 13th and had battled back to fight for seventh before a pitstop infringement caused him to serve a Stop-Go penalty, dropping him back to 12th at the chequered flag.
