Anthony made his saloon car debut partnering one of his Personal Tuition clients Andrew Stevens in a BMW M3. He was invited to take part in the 100 minute race to partner Stevens in his first race in the series.
Racing at Donington in the European Endurance Racing Championship Britcar Anthony made a superlative effort to qualify the Group N specification car on class Pole Position and third overall. This put him on the grid ahead of British Touring Car race winner Phil Bennett and sportscar ace Nigel Greensall and only just behind a Ferrari 355 & Multiple British Touring Car Champion Andy Rouse's monster Mercedes 190 - an ex-DTM German Touring car!
The 100 minute race involved a carefully planned pitstop to refuel & change drivers.
Spot the smoking brakes!
The team at work
The pair finished a creditable 2nd in class on their debut despite worrying brake problems, broken differential & a cracked exhaust!
