Championship leader Sandy Mitchell is targeting back-to-back wins to stretch the gap at the top of British GT this weekend.
The Angus 20-year-old heads to Donington Park for the second time this season with a 16.5 point lead in both the overall title chase and Silver Cup category.
Mitchell, who shares the No78 Black Bull Lamborghini Huracan Evo GT3 with Rob Collard, is determined to maintain the momentum of a maiden 2020 win at Brands Hatch last time out.
“The guys at Barwell Motorsport, who prepare the Lamborghini, worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to produce a terrific car. Now we all want to replicate that success,” said the Lamborghini Squadra Corse junior programme racer.
The weekend’s three-hour race offers the pairing an opportunity to capitalise on their pace at the Derbyshire circuit.
“This is a circuit I have always gone well on and one I enjoy driving,” said Mitchell.
“It’s a very exciting track with a lot of fast corners which makes doing well there especially satisfying. Throughout the season we’ve proved both in qualifying and the races that we have a very fast car, a great driver pairing, and a strong team behind us.
“The longer three-hour race this weekend will definitely allow Rob and I to maximise the car on the fast, sweeping track,” he said.
An extra 20-second success penalty at the driver changeover will make the bid for Donington success a but tougher.
“We’re confident we can fight back, at least finish on the podium and hopefully score our second win of the season,” said Mitchell.
