Xentek Motorsport Make It Two Podiums From Two In British Endurance Championship

Xentek Motorsport continued their fantastic start to the 2024 British Endurance Championship season with a podium finish in round two at Snetterton (13 April).


Bal Sidhu and Josh Steed were once again piloting a Porsche Cayman GT4, aiming to build on their stunning class win and overall top three finish in the season opener at Donington Park back in March.


Lining up in a competitive ‘Class D’ entry of GT4 machinery, a good performance from Sidhu in qualifying secured them third in class on the grid for the two-hour race. The 2023 GT5 Challenge Am champion was back behind the wheel for the start of the race and made great early progress.


Rising to second in class and as high as fifth overall at one stage, he held the class position through to a safety car period in which the team made their first pitstop. Steed, who himself won the GT5 Challenge Pro title in 2021, took over and set about putting in a run of rapid lap times.


Tucking under the rear wing of the class-leader at one point, he continued their podium challenge through to the final pitstop when Sidhu jumped back in for the run to the chequered flag. Faultless performances from both drivers were rewarded with a brilliant second place in class.


Sarah-Jayne McKenna - Team Manager: “To start our first full season in the British Endurance Championship with two podium finishes from the opening two races is fantastic. Bal and Josh drove superbly again at Snetterton, putting in fast and consistent stints with no mistakes or dramas. It’s been a really promising run for them so far and we’re excited for the next round in June.”


The third round of the 2024 British Endurance Championship season takes place on Saturday 15th June, when Xentek will race on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.
