James Cottingham Wins Masters GT Challenge at the British Grand Prix

Not just single seaters were on track this past weekend for the 2021 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Master’s Historic Racing invited their Pre-66 GT Gentleman Drivers to race on grand prix weekend at Silverstone with qualifying on Friday and two thirty minute races on Saturday and Sunday. James Cottingham lined up on the grid in the Carreras Colombia Cobra which is engineered and run by Pursuit, based in Bicester.

On Friday, James qualified as third fastest, behind Julian Thomas and Andrew Jordan, both driving Shelby Daytona Coupes. On Saturday, the Daytona Coupes started neck and neck at the front, with Thomas passing Jordan for the lead on the second lap. Thomas managed to hold his lead until the checkered flag, with Jordan taking second and Cottingham retaining his qualifying position of third.

For the final race on Sunday, the Daytona Coupes were at it again, racing bumper to bumper in a fight for the lead. Thomas managed to steal the lead from Jordan by lap eight but Jordan did not turn off the pressure. On the laps lap whilst approaching Stowe, Jordan braked a fraction too late and lost traction, clipping Thomas and causing both cars to spin. Seizing the opportunity, James took the lead and emerged victorious, with John Davison and John Spiers behind, both in TVR Griffiths. In addition to winning the race on Sunday, James was allos the winner on agregate for the two races, a highly successful outing for both him and the Carreras Colombia Cobra, which ran faultlessly all weekend.
