Race Report: Silverstone 2006
Success at Silverstone!

September saw Technosport compete for the first time at Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in the Dutch Supercar Challenge support race to the illustrious Britcar 24 hour.

There were two races to be held over the motorsport on Friday and Saturday with the 24 hour following the second race. The team spent Thursday testing and competed in Friday's and Saturday's race. Friday's race was a close call. Team Technosport were leading the race at the halfway mark, but due to a slow pitstop finished 4th overall.

As Saturday and the race loomed the car was again rolled out for 30 minutes of qualifying. The previous days uninterrupted testing was stopped short by the sequential gearbox totally failing. The team’s elation was a little premature, as they then had to work furiously to get the car ready for the race in the next 2 hours!

On Saturday with the car 4th on the grid the team lined up for the second race. After a hectic 50 minutes the team finished not only 1st in class but won the race overall, which was a great result!
