NORTHWICH Racer Ian Loggie kept his great start to the season going at Donington in round three of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship, writes Ste McNorton.

He achieved second place in the two-hour endurance race on the Sunday.

Loggie and teammate Yelmer Buurman had put the RAM Racing Mercedes GT3 on pole the day before and were looking to be the car to beat.

No sooner had the race started, a first corner incident brought out the pace car after the Lamborghini of Knutsford's Michael Igoe was spun around from second place.

A few laps behind the pace car and we were back underway but within two laps out came the pace car again, and this would also happen for a third time within 15 minutes.

Once everything settled down, Loggie found a good pace but it was the ABBA Racing Mercedes of Liverpool's Richard Neary who was flying, and considering he had started at the back of the field – because they did not qualify when a brake disc exploded during Saturday – could only hold on for a few laps when he was passed.

But after a long hard race, Loggie and Buurman scored a great second and are in a strong position for the championship.
