John Bryant-Meisner remained unfazed by the disconnection of his boost or the added weight to his car after his first win of the weekend, taking another victory at Silverstone as a guest driver.
The Swede started from pole and utilized early battles behind him to his advantage, building up a significant gap to second-placed Jordan King. While King ultimately began to make up time to Bryant-Meisner, he did not have enough laps to dethrone the Performance Racing driver, finishing second yet picking up the points for a win, as he was the top placed of the International Class cars.
Fortec’s William Buller continued his perfect record of podium finishes this weekend with a third place after an early collision with Felix Serralles that put the Puerto Rican out of the race. Jann Mardenborough finished fourth ahead of Nicholas Latifi and Felipe Guimaraes, who was in contention for a podium finish before receiving a drive-through for not respecting track limits. The Double R Racing trio followed, with Antonio Giovinazzi ahead of Sean Gelael and Tatiana Calderon.
Ed Jones was, once again, the winner in the National Class, ahead of Sun Zheng and Cameron Twynham.
