Round 2: Rockingham, 4 May
FF Corse’s Gary Eastwood and Rob Barff took victory at Rockingham after some fine driving and deft strategy by the #18 Ferrari 458 Italia pairing.
The pair capitalised on a long first stint for Eastwood and a safety car period to make their driver change. This left Barff leading comfortably from the otherwise closely-packed field, with pole-sitting duo Marco Attard and Alexander Sims leading the chase.
Sims had passed several cars to lie second but could not catch Barff, who took the chequered flag. “Gary and the team did all the hard work – I just had to drive around carefully for about an hour,” said Barff.
