GT and sports car racer, Anna Walewska, will return to scene of one her outstanding results when the British GT Championship descends on Snetterton this weekend.
Four years ago, driving for Intersport Racing, the Hindhead-based driver, along with teammates Kevin Clark and former international rally driver Ian Donaldson won the Willhire Six Hour Endurance race at the famous Norfolkcircuit at the wheel of a BMW E92 M3.
This weekend marks round three of the British GT Championship where she will continue to share driving duties with up-and-coming endurance racer Calum Hawkins-Row in their Ginetta Cars Ginetta G55 GT4.
The pair have endured a difficult start to 2018, a top five class result at the opening round at Oulton Park on Easter Monday was followed by the curtailed rain-soaked race two.
Last month’s third round at Rockingham Motor Speedway resulted in a non-finish after an unfortunate engine failure just 20 minutes into the two-hour race.
However, Anna’s team mate will be enthused by his recent class win at a Britcar Endurance meeting at Silverstone driving a similar Ginetta.
“I have great memories of racing alongside Ian and Kevin that day and really like the circuit,” said the Signal Surveyors Limited backed Walewska, “We have had very little race time so far this season and I am determined to get our season back on target. It has been a difficult year so far but we will remain positive and focussed. Returning to another track where I have enjoyed previous success motivates me for a strong result on Sunday.”
Students from the University of Bolton’s National Centre for Motorsport Engineering will, as usual, join the crew over the bank holiday weekend, where they apply classroom learning to a live race environment.
