BRIT PACK DRIVER RANKINGS: Calado cracks the top ten

James Calado capped a remarkable weekend of racing for British drivers by climbing into the Brit Pack Driver Rankings top ten for the first time this season. The AF Corse Ferrari driver leapt an impressive 21 places thanks to his – and Alessandro PierGuidi’s – GTE Pro win at the 6 Hours of Silverstone. Incredibly, the Worcestershire racer was not the highest climber of the weekend though, as the packed programme at the Home of British Motorsport caused havoc in the standings.

The highest climber of the week was ELMS LMP3 racer Matthew Bell, who jumped 87 places to 116th following his category victory last Saturday. One of his co-drivers, Tony Wells, climbed into the top 100 for the first time in 2018 too, rising 44 spots to 76th.

The WEC race was also home to some pleasing finishes from the home drivers, as well as some monumental climbing in the rankings. Andy Priaulx finally finds himself where he belongs – in the top 20 – as his second place on the track equated to a 51 place climb to 18th. His partner-in-crime, Harry Tincknell, also jumped forward to 42nd. The discrepancy in places between the two Ford drivers is explained by the fact that as well as his GTE Pro programme, Tincknell also competes in IMSA with Mazda, where results have not been as satisfactory.

The highest new entry since May saw former Toyota driver Anthony Davidson make his bow into the Brit Pack Rankings. His LMP2 debut for DragonSpeed saw him score a weighted score of 7.500, leading him to begin his tenure in 17th. Statistically, it will take another 3-4 races to get a true reflection of his standing amongst his peers using our ranking system but for now, it is simply great to have Davidson back racing competitively.

Speaking of IMSA, the Brit Pack Driver of the Weekend award winner, Alexander Sims, climbed 11 places to 31st following his win at Virginia, while fellow nominee Ben Hanley took his place in the top 30 following his busily impressive weekend at Silverstone.
