No Limits: KT Motorsport cruise to Snetterton endurance win

In Endurance, News, No Limits

REIGNING National Endurance champions KT Motorsport picked up where they left off with No Limits Racing as they dominated the field to take victory at Snetterton.

Welsh trackday mogul Phil Bevan and partner-in-crime David Hall returned to the NLR grid with a secret weapon in tow as they brought along former British Supersport front-runner and race winner Luke Jones to bolster the squad.

And the crew wasted no time in laying down a fast lap early in Saturday’s qualifying session to take pole position for the Le Mans-style start, lining up at the front of the pack ahead of Army Team 1’s Pep Brown and Sam Cox and Rye Motors Racing’s Theo and Louis Turner-Laurent.

It was KT’s to lose for nearly every minute of the three-hour battle as they led 87 of the 90 total laps, only relinquishing the lead early on to Army Team 1 before pulling a comfortable gap and cruising to victory over three laps clear of trouble.

Despite tipping off more than once throughout the event, Bevan admits the win was a good way to start his and the team’s 2018 season.

“I was the weak link in the team this weekend,” he told UK Clubsport. “Falling off Saturday made me feel second hand, then I did the same thing on Sunday.

“There were a few top teams missing so it was easier than it should have been for us. The endurance race was good but it was probably the worst weekend of solo racing I’ve ever had.”

Andrew Stockdale, Stephen Frizzell and Steven Bates bagged the Clubman 1000 win for On It Racing in sixth overall, just ahead of Pertemps Network Racing’s Colin Norris and Gaz Evans, who took the National 600 class victory.

Last year’s dominant Clubman 600 endurance champions, Double Two Racing’s Pete Wright and Martyn Siviter, nabbed the Clubman 600 win in 10th.
