A thrilling finale at Donington Park circuit saw Jonny Adam and team-mate Flick Haigh create some special British GT history to be added to the record books.
Going into the final round with a points lead the duo kept cool heads to navigate their way through a dramatic race and secure fourth place – claiming the 2018 British GT title in the process.
The result means that Haigh becomes the first woman to win the series’ premier class – while Jonny is now the only driver to have won three overall championships.
Reflecting on the weekend’s events Jonny said: “What a feeling it is to claim my third British GT Championship and set a new record. The race itself wasn’t straightforward, and was very tense at times, but we had a plan and knew exactly what we had to do.
“I have to pay tribute to Flick, she has driven so well this year, especially given it’s her first full season in GT3 with Aston Martin Racing. A deserved champion and now the first women to win the senior title. Her dedication along with the teamwork that Optimum Motorsport has shown has been incredible.”
The season finale at Donington was Jonny’s last competitive outing in the current Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 model before switching to a brand new Aston GT3 challenger next season.
“My final race in my old friend was certainly a fitting result. It’s been an amazing seven years driving this car, winning five championships with customer teams both in the UK and in Europe and sharing some great moments and memories along the way.
“Thank you to all my sponsors and everyone at Aston Martin Racing for another stellar British GT season. After each title I’ve said it will be hard to top, but I’m sure we’ll try to again!”
