Maiden GT4 Podium for UltraTek Racing Team RJN
We were absolutely thrilled to be watching from the hospitality suite at Rockingham on Sunday when the UltraTek Racing Team RJN claimed their first British GT4 podium with a 2nd and 4th place in GT4 and a P1 and P2 in the GT4 Pro-Am competition.
The day started with both Nissan 370z NISMO GT4 cars starting mid-grid with #54 in 12th and #53 in 16th but Stephen Johansen delivered fast lap after lap and Kelvin Fletcher managed to move from 15th to 1st place by the end of his stint.
Martin Plowman had a drive of a lifetime, passing car after car in his characteristically clean, efficient and breath-taking style of overtaking to bring the car home 2nd in class and 4th overall. Jesse Anttila charged from the front of GTA4 Pro-Am standings and 6th overall to 2nd overall.
The weekend’s strong results put UltraTek Racing Team RJN 3rd in the team championship, 2nd and 3rd in the Pro-Am drivers standings and 5th and 6th out of the 21 cars in the overall GT4 driver’s championship.
Martin Plowman - Car #53 Pro commented, "Starting P15 Kelvin drove a very aggressive, flawless race. I was one proud team-mate watching him charge through the field all the way to P7 and to take the Pro/AM lead! Our time is coming, but it was a great result for the 54 on their maiden podium. I’d like to say a big thank you to UltraTek / RJN Motorsport for all of their hard work and for giving us a fast car in the race."
Nick Proctor, CEO & Founder of amber energy@ said, “I’m so proud that amber are sponsors of UltraTek Racing Team RJN and hopefully this marks a strong start to the season. It’s great to see a team so passionate about driving, putting in the hard work to deliver a fast, efficient and effective drive.”
The team are out again in the next round of the British GT Championship at Snetterton on the 26th and 27th May.
