Spirit Moto Corsa made a strong start to their final weekend in British GP2, with Jamie Perrin and Mason Law both finishing within the top three of the class standings on the opening day at Brands Hatch.

After a strange FP1 which saw effectively no running, the sun came out for FP2 and both riders were immediately on the pace.

Jamie finished the session second fastest in class and seventh overall, while Mason was closely-matched and ended up directly behind him in the classification.

The team is hoping to enjoy a strong last weekend in the GP2 class for both its riders, following on the back of a good run of form coming into the last event of the season.

Free Practice One

Mason was on track alone as he tested the conditions following the red flag

The session began in what appeared to be overcast conditions but, almost as soon as the riders headed out, light rain drops began to fall around the back end of the circuit.

A red flag was brought out, but it was only a brief stoppage as the rain quickly abated.

However, when the session resumed it became clear that conditions weren’t conducive to any running. The track was too slippery for slick tyres, but their was hardly any moisture on the surface so wet tyres weren’t any use either.

Mason ventured out for a sighting lap on slicks but came straight back into the pits. That was it for the team’s session and only three riders in total completed a lap.

Free Practice Two

Jamie was top of the GP2 timesheets for much of FP2

The sun was out for Free Practice Two and conditions were as good as you could expect for this late time of the year.

Jamie and Mason put in their best lap times within the first half of the 25 minute session. They sat 1-2 in class respectively until the last few minutes when Nesbitt jumped ahead of both of them on a new tyre.

Both riders were comfortable on the bike and closely-matched with one another, which can give the team confidence for the rest of the weekend.
