The TEC-Supplies.com team won in awful conditions surviving three safety cars and a crash with six laps to go. The pair had a two-minute lead going into the last session and fortunately Westley Crozier’s crash cost only 40 seconds giving them the win. Wes set the fastest lap for the race on his HM Racing prepared S1000RR BMW. The team would especially like to thank Miles Hutchins who braved three hours signalling on the pit-wall to help the team with his considerable knowledge regarding strategy, gained from running his own Endurance team at world level. Thanks Miles!
