Morton leads home double podium – Quarantine GT Series

After showing such pace in the early parts of the season, Jeremiah Morton finally overcame his bad luck to score a podium in Round 4 of the Quarantine GT Series.


#23 Jeremiah Morton
Qualified: 1st
Race: 2nd

Morton scored his second Pole Position of the season at Silverstone, in a Qualifying session that saw the Top 6 cars covered by 0.150 seconds! Getting off to a good start, Morton lead the early phase of the race, before Darryn Lobb made his move to the front. Morton opted to make an early pit stop, to try and make use of the undercut. Unfortunately, the strategy wouldn’t pay off, with Lobb retaining the lead after his stop. But with the Silverstone circuit being so hard on tyres, he started to come back at Lobb in the closing stages of the race. Ultimately, Morton would come home in P2, just half a second off the winner!


#25 Jackson Freer
Qualifed: 4th
Race: 3rd

Jackson Freer had a quiet start to the race, hanging in 4th place with a gap in front, and a gap behind. As the race went on however, he started to come into contention as the leaders struggled with tyre wear. Freer closed the gap to teammate Morton, who in turn closed the gap to the race leader. At the end of the race, Freer would come home P3, 2.5 seconds off the lead. It’s his third consecutive podium in the Quarantine GT Series.


#27 Sean Grimmond
Qualified: 9th
Race: 5th

Starting out of P9, Sean Grimmond enjoyed a tough, clean battle with Gregory Colgan through the middle phase of the race. As the laps went on, and drivers started to make mistakes and struggle with tyres, Grimmond steadily moved his way through the field. Eventually, he’d come home to claim his first Top 5 of the season!


#089 Keegan Sutton-Baker
Qualified: 8th
Race: 7th

Keegan Sutton-Baker started alongside his teammate Sean Grimmond. Baker had a solid race, but came unstuck trying to make a move for 5th, and dropped back to P7 where he would finish.





Round 3 heads to Road America on May 4th. Meanwhile, the team prepares for the 24 Hours Nurburgring this weekend.
