Lap record and podium: Interlloy M Motorsport had a successful weekend at Sandown Park in the Australian GT Series
In free practice, Justin McMillan and David Russell in the Gallardo FL2 GT3 immediately got to grips with the mere 3.1 kilometre track close to Melbourne. In qualifying the perfect lap would be the story of the day. McMillan not only outclassed the competition with his time of 1m 08.814s, but also set a new lap record for GT cars.
At the start of the first race, the car initially lost two positions, but was within reach of second place. After the mandatory pit stops, McMillan set about overtaking the second placed car. However, unfortunately this didn’t prove possible as the race was cut short due to a competitor’s accident. Nevertheless, 3rd place on the winners’ podium was a great result for McMillan / Russell.
