This month we are excited to announce that this months pace car will feature The MK GT1 prototype sports car! Some of you will recognise the car from 2016 – we had previously planned to run the car but poor weather conditions meant we had to cancel the car at short notice. It’s now back! *Weather permitting again!
The Car provided by EasyPaint will be on track just before the start of the race putting in a couple of laps before the grid walk. The car will then go on to lead the pack to start the race.
