Patrick Kibble’s debut British GT Championship season draws to its conclusion this weekend as the series arrives at Donington Park and the TF Sport driver is looking to end his season on a high.
Joining Josh Price in the #95 Aston Martin Vantage GT4, Patrick and Josh are looking to bounce back from their disappointing visit to Brands Hatch which saw their race come to an early finish on the opening lap.
Despite not being in the championship battle, Patrick and his teammate have shown great speed all year but unfortunately, luck hasn’t been on their side and results haven’t reflected the performances. However, this has not boyd their confidence as they chase another pole position and their second podium in the last three rounds to cap off the season.
With picturesque views and huge spectator areas, the sweeping corners and fastback section of the 2.49-mile Donington Park GP Circuit always produce great racing and the championship heads to Leicestershire track for the second time this season.
Previously at Donington, Patrick and his teammate were set for a successful weekend before another competitor made contact with the #95 car which ultimately bent the right steering arm of the car and put them out of contention for a points-scoring finish.
“Josh and I head to the final race aiming to get the win. The points may not look so great but we know ourselves that we have done a great job and we’ve had the pace as seen at Silverstone with the pole and then the podium at Spa, but we’ve also had such bad luck as well – Silverstone and Brands – but we know we’ve done a good job.
“At Donington, we won’t let our misfortune to date get us down and we’ll go there to win, and testing has been good with long stints with the lap time remaining consistent throughout, so we should be good for the race.”
The weekend’s action gets underway on Saturday with the first practice session at 09:35. Qualifying will then take place later that day at 17:00, with Sunday’s two-hour race starting at 13:15.
