Charlie holds fourth place heading for Silverstone

NGK-sponsored Charlie Martin is in fourth place in the Praga category of the Britcar Endurance Championship following round three of the series at Oulton Park.

The #91 Powerhouse Performance by Praga driver qualified in fifth position on the grid for the first race of the day and after a solid drive with teammate Jack Fabby achieved a fourth-place finish.

From fifth on the grid in race two, the team quickly rose to fourth on the first lap and battled for third place soon before a safety car period which resulted in the team finishing in fourth place once more.

She said: “Overall, Saturday was a positive day - two P4 results means a good points haul in the championship. We would’ve loved to finish on the podium and we certainly came close but just didn’t quite have the pace to match the guys up ahead.

“I enjoyed a lot of the battles we had throughout the races though. We’ve got a few weeks until the two-hour race at Silverstone so we’ll be working hard until then to ensure we’re as prepared as we can be.”

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “Charlie continues to perform consistently well and will no doubt be relishing the prospect of trying to make the podium at Silverstone on July 3.”
