Chloe Grant Gunning For Top 5 Finish At Silverstone GP Before Adversity Strikes

​Chloe Grant was on track to secure 4th and 7th place finishes at round 2 of the 2024 GB4 Championship

In round 2 of the 2024 GB4 Championship at Silverstone GP this past weekend (27th – 28th April), Chloe finished P7 in race one and, unfortunately, was forced to retire on the second last lap of race two.

Setting her fastest time of 2:18.631 in a damp qualifying, Chloe started P8 for race one, P7 for race two, and P5 in race three’s grid reversal. However, the GB4 Championship only saw two out of three scheduled races across the weekend, with Sunday morning’s 11:06 race cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

For race one, the 18-year-old got off the line, narrowly missing a stalled car in the position in front of her, and slipped into 6th place for turn 1. Despite having no 2nd gear for the entire race, Chloe challenged the tail of her teammate, Harry Burgoyne, until Marcus Luzio caught up with her on the Wellington Straight.

Lap 3 initiated a fantastic battle for 6th place between Grant and the number 27 car of Wilson when Chloe impressed with an overtake around the outside of turn 11, directly followed by a close-to-contact move by Wilson at the apex of turn 13. Allowing enough space and carrying her speed through, Grant held P6 until a switchback into Brooklands. Chloe gained 6th place back the following lap. On the tail of Burgoyne once again, Grant kept the pressure on her teammate down to the last lap when they were joined by the third car in the KMR outfit, Brandon McCaughan, who grabbed P6 at the chequered flag.

For the delayed race two, Chloe immediately jumped into P5 from her 7th-place start. Another battle with teammate, McCaughan, moved Grant back a position until lap 6 when she reclaimed 5th place. However, the second last lap saw contact between Chloe and Palmowski, which sent Chloe off the track and having to retire from the remainder of the race – this incident earned a humorous “we need to take a visit to Specsavers to judge” from the commentators’ box. An alternative ending would have seen Chloe secure a technical 4th place finish.

Chloe reflected on the tumultuous weekend saying, “We have taken a massive step forward again this weekend in terms of pace and confidence in the car. It was unfortunate we didn’t get the result we wanted, but the pace is even better now and we know what we are capable of for Donington.”

Round 3 takes place on 25th – 26th May when the championship visits Donington Park GP. During the 2024 GB4 Championship, Grant – with KMR Sport – will return to Silverstone GP and visit Snetterton 300 and Brands Hatch GP.
