GTCup_OultonPark-24861For motorsport enthusiasts and followers of our own racing exploits we can highly recommend viewing Motors TV’s coverage of the GT Cup race at Oulton Park in July. See the link below. Lamborghini Gallardo drivers, Neil Huggins and Jeff Wyatt were joined by Warren Gilbert in the teams Marcos Mantis GT car for the mid-season round.
Notwithstanding the catastrophic start for the lead Huracan and Ferrari cars that crashed at the first corner, claiming a handful of pursuing racers that couldn’t avoid the melee and debris and subsequent cancellation of race 1 for GT Cup, an enthralling race was enjoyed by drivers and spectators in the second race with much of that credited to Topcats race team Director Warren Gilbert.
He was locked in battle with the Bailey/Shultz Ferrari 458 almost from the start until Gilbert was able to force the Ferrari to run wide at Deer Leap and pass down the inside as the pitstop window was opening.
Effort exerted by the driver is translated through the car and it’s rather ‘on the edge’ stance.
Gilbert finished an incredible 5th overall, punching above his weight as usual against the modern machinery around him.  Both Gilbert and the Huggins/Wyatt duo in the Lamborghini came 2nd in their respective classes.
Our next round of GT Cup will be at Silverstone GP Circuit on 10/11th September. We welcome supporters of the team so if you would like tickets to come and watch the racing and wave the metaphorical Topcats flag, then be our guest!!
