CALLUM MACLEOD AT oulton park

Easter Weekend saw the first and second rounds of the 2019 British GT Championship begin under glorious sunshine.

The crowds flocked to the picturesque Oulton Park circuit to see the highly competitive grid form. An amazing Saturday qualifying saw Ian Loggie place the Ram Racing Mercedes AMG GT3 on Pole Position for the first race, Callum placed the Merc in 2nd place for the second race - it was looking so very good for the team

However, Monday’s first race did not go to plan. Ian led from the front but was hit and taken out by the Bentley of Ryan Ratcliffe - ending both of their races. Credit to Ryan who took the blame and gave a full apology - credit to him for that.

The team worked furiously to repair the damage in time for race 2 - and the car was ready to take 2nd place on the grid for race two. Callum was pushed wide into the first corner and settled in in 4th place for the first stint of the race. After pit stops the team were in a great position with Ian behind the wheel, showing the pace of the car and being quicker than all around him. Running slightly wide on to the marbles while trying to pass the Richard Neary Merc left Ian off the track and dropping down to 9th but managed to bring home the car in 7th.

Not an ideal start but the car certainly had the pace and proved that both Callum and Ian will be ones to watch this season.

Great work by the whole team at Ram Racing throughout the weekend proves that this will be a formidable combination.

KRAFTWERK TOOLS UK with callum macleod

Our first video with Callum Macleod of 2019 is now ready to view. This is a great introduction to the car he and Ian Loggie will be driving with RAM Racing in the British GT Championship this season.

We are delighted to continue our relationship with Callum Macleod into 2019. We worked closely with Callum during 2018 in the British GT Championship. Callum was driving the Team Parker Bentley Continental GT3 with Ian Loggie and was continually posting quickest times throughout the season. Unfortunately the year did not yield the results it should have done but the Bentley and it’s drivers certainly confirmed their pace.
