Class debutants Spirit Moto Corsa enter the final round of this season’s British GP2 Championship at Brands Hatch, with Mason Law well in the hunt for title honours at the Kent venue this weekend.
The Benfleet ace is just eight points adrift of the championship summit, which is an amazing feat in itself for a project that is very much a ‘work in progress’ as both Mason and team principal Rod McDonagh have candidly explained all season. Five podiums in ten races to date have been topped with victories at Snetterton and Oulton Park; something Law will be hoping to replicate on the famous 2.4-mile Brands Hatch GP circuit this Saturday and Sunday.
“Here we are entering the final race of the weirdest season ever. I’m quite looking forward to getting to Brands and seeing 2020 out on a positive note. I’ve been training and getting myself as personally prepared as I can, but there’s no doubting the fact that at the end of the weekend’s two races – it would be nice to lift the championship title for Spirit Moto Corsa.
They are a brand new team to the BSB paddock and it’s not been without its challenges, and I’m sure the boys will agree – at times it’s been like pushing water up a hill. At Donington we encountered a few more set-backs but as a good team does, we have worked out why, and… you win and lose together. We’ve stuck to the task and the team has been working mega hard behind the scenes to give me the best bike possible for the final championship challenge this weekend at Brands Hatch, so let’s get started and do the best job we possibly can.”
Rod McDonagh – Team Principal
“We look forward to a strong performance at the final round of this year’s shortened championship, particularly since we have finally resolved a technical issue that has impacted some of our results so far. Nonetheless, whatever the result of this weekend’s racing, we are certain that Spirit has demonstrated the strength of its team, riders and motorcycles. Despite lacking development and testing time, Spirit is much further along with the new SP2 than we could have hoped for. With four or even five teams competing for the title this season, it demonstrates how competitive and strong the field has been in 2020, and is a credit to the involvement of all the GP2 teams.”
