Silverstone – Charles Rainford bringing home the silverware
It’s always tough having back to back race weekends but it all becomes worthwhile when you have a haul of trophies to bring home. We tested at Silverstone on Wednesday ahead of the official TOCA weekend. Charles had great pace from the start lapping with consistency and going quicker with each session. The good pace continued in Friday free practice but in qualifying on Saturday the balance wasn’t quite there. Charles qualified 4th in Pro-Am but his pace returned from the start of race 1. He secured 3rd position and his first podium of the weekend. For race 2 Charles started from 3rd in Pro-Am and battled his way into the lead. During the closing laps he defending against a very quick Pepe Massot to retain his lead and claim victory. This is Charles third win and fifth podium of the season so far.
