02 May NEAR PERFECT GT CUP WEEKEND FOR MORRIS AND XAVIER WITH THREE WINS FROM FOUR AT BRANDS
- Pro racer Seb Morris celebrates first race victory of GT Cup season
- Winning hat-trick at Brands with stand-in team-mate Gustavo Xavier
- Morris wishes RAM regular Charles Dawson speedy recovery from injury
Seb Morris produced a flawless performance at Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit over the weekend, 29th/30th April, to celebrate three race victories with team-mate Gustavo Xavier during the second event of the GT Cup Championship season.
Super-sub Xavier joined pro racer Morris as a stand-in for his regular RAM Racing team-mate Charles Dawson, who is recovering from a broken back, and the pair gelled immediately to deliver a series of outstanding results in Kent.
Qualifying the No.42 Mercedes-AMG GT4 third fastest in the GTH class for round five, the first Sprint race of the weekend, Xavier went on to seal victory on his GT Cup debut by 2.5 seconds to get the event off to an excellent start.
For the round six Feature race later in the afternoon, Morris and Xavier worked perfectly to make it two wins from two for the RAM squad. Rapid as always, Morris produced a terrific second stint and seized the lead late on to take the chequered flag nearly three seconds clear.
On day two, Xavier bagged pole position for the round seven Sprint race before making it a hat-trick of wins, again by a couple of seconds.
“Brands was a great success, three wins out of four is obviously fantastic – I’m really delighted. The team were brilliant, we had a very strong car. I’m obviously disappointed Charles [Dawson] couldn’t make it due to his broken back, so I wish him well and a very speedy recovery. Gustavo did a great job throughout and we both worked very well together, which I think the results show! Overall it was a great weekend.”
