Topcats Racing’s hotshot driver, Raphael Fiorentino had to start from the back of the grid at Brands Hatch on Saturday 13th March after receiving a penalty for overtaking under the yellow flags. He made a flying start in the Marcos Mantis GT2 car with some fantastic overtaking manoeuvres.

Watch him overtake the Porsche GT3 on the way up to Druids and almost exchange body paint with the car in the process. Eventually, he catches up with the lesser powered sister Marcos driven by Henry Fletcher who courteously allows him through. After that, they tailed each other for most of the first half of the race, promoting themselves up into 3rd and 4th position in the running.
