Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup debutant Oli Basey-Fisher was satisfied and happy with the pace shown on his maiden outing in the G50 class at Brands Hatch.

Off the back of winning the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge title at Donington Park’s Grand Prix Circuit just a week earlier, the 18-year-old from Great Finborough had the opportunity to return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship support paddock for the first time since 2012.

Relishing the chance, despite a series of technical issues and mechanical gremlins, the Century Logistics-backed racer qualified fourth in class for the first encounter on Saturday and put together a strong performance in race conditions.

Marking a major step-up in terms of power, and a big change in handling compared to the Ginetta G40 he has been used to racing this year, Basey-Fisher performed well in his maiden race to take fourth

On Sunday, Basey-Fisher retired on lap one of race two before finishing fourth in class in race three.
