It didn’t take long for Andrew Jarman to find his feet in the British GT Championship as he won the second race at Oulton Park over Easter weekend.

The MK racer, driving a TF Sport Aston Martin started third on the grid for Race 1 and put in a solid stint before handing over to team mate Devon Modell.

But a mix-up under safety car conditions left half the field a lap down, putting paid to any chances of a race win for the team, but they managed to salvage a podium in third place.

Determined for Race 2, Modell gave Jarman a great chance at getting in the mix, bringing the car in in fourth place at the change.

And the gap got even closer under the safety car, and with the majority of the GT4 field now bunched together as the circuit went green, Jarman successfully executed a late dive up the inside of Old Hall to take the lead.

And from there he didn’t look back, taking the chequered flag.

Jarman said: “Moving up from the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge, which is a great championship, to British GT, I didn’t know how much of a jump it would be.

“TF Sport and I wanted to show that we could run at the front and, today, we have done that.

“It has been a fantastic effort by the TF Sport team and by Devon Modell all weekend.

“We are a strong pairing and this gives us a great platform on which to build upon for the rest of the season.”
