Podium for Sibley at Brands Hatch!
Updated: Aug 21, 2018
The weekend saw Tom competing at a hot and sunny Brands Hatch GP in the G40 Cup. His weekend started strong with P3 in qualifying, behind GT4 driver Harry King and championship leader Tom Golding. Race one, Tom was caught out at the start behind a slow get away from King demoting him down to 6th. Racing nose to tail with the front pack but unable to find a way past, Tom finished the race in 6th place.
Race two was a much better start and saw Tom climb up to 5th with a move into the Druids hairpin. Another exciting race with close battles had Tom finishing in 5th. With the reverse grid for the final race meant Tom would be starting from 4th place. An ambitious first lap had Tom up into second place and chasing first. After two laps Tom grabbed first place and tried to build a gap to the chasing pack. King and Golding caught on with 5 minutes remaining, leaving Tom with no choice but to defend hard for his position. Eventually both King and Golding moved ahead of Tom just before the chequered flag, giving Tom a third place finish and another podium in this seasons campaign.
