Australian GT Championship Rnd#4 2015 presented by Pirelli

Whilst the score-card for the Sydney Motorsport Park round of the Australian GT Championship may not include big numbers for the Interlloy-supported M-Motorsport team, there were plenty of positives to take away from the two 60-minute championship races, with both the #48 Camaro and the #46 Lamborghini featuring strongly throughout the weekend.

Ultimately though both teams struck problems during the event, Justin McMillan turned sideways at the fastest part of the circuit whilst running strongly in race one, whilst the popular M-Motorsport Camaro was turned around on the opening lap of race two, suffering an electrical issue in the process which saw it stranded on the circuit.

There were highlights though, series rookie Glen Wood was impressive on his debut in the Interlloy Lamborghini, fourth fastest in opening qualifying ahead of a number of established GT stars, with Le Brocq making the top ten in the Interlloy Camaro in Q2, whilst both McMillan and Nathan Morcom turned in solid laps to give the team plenty to look forward to ahead of the two scheduled 60-minute races.

Starting from the third row of the grid, McMillan stuck just off the tail of the leaders on the opening two laps, but on the run into turn one – one of the fastest corners in Australian motorsport – it all came unstuck on lap three.

The fifth and penultimate round of the Australian GT Championship will be held at Sandown Raceway in south-eastern Melbourne in just under three weeks (11-13 September), where the two M-Motorsport Interlloy cars will compete in front of their home fans.
