Ultima demonstrates great potential at Snetterton.
Encouraging second round race for British GT Championship team.

Surrey race ace Aaron Scott (www.aaronscott.co.uk) and his Master Motorsport team mate Steven Brady were at Snetterton for Round 2 of the British GT Championship this weekend. For Aaron this marked his first run in the Ultima after previous dramas at Donington in Round 1.

Despite enduring gearbox and engine problems during the pre race test and free practice session, which restricted the number of laps that they could put in, Steven qualified the Omnico backed car in 6th place ready for Sundays race.

Further improvements were made overnight in time for race day, which saw the car 3rd fastest in the morning warm up session, with Aaron at the wheel. The car going even quicker than in qualifying on full tanks, as the team continued to improve the set up of the Ultima.

Steven started the race and drove expertly over the opening laps to move into 3rd position. Unfortunately just as Steven approached the 1-hour mark and was about to hand the car over to Aaron, a gearbox failure put the car out of the race, costing the team a certain podium position.

Aaron said, "We have shown the potential of the car and there is more to come, now we have some laps under our belt we can work hard on set ups and I'm sure we will be consistently in the hunt for podiums over the rest of the season. The team have done a superb job and we all look forward to the next race at Knockhill in 3 weeks time."
