Silverstone, UK, May 8, 2022 - Barwell Motorsport’s Sandy Mitchell and Adam Balon delivered Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s first victory in the British GT Championship season with a measured drive under heavy pressure during the three-hour Silverstone 500. Factory Driver Mitchell had helped the #72 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO take pole position on Saturday before coming out on top by just under a second at the end of the opening endurance event of the year.

After two sprint races to kick off the season at Oulton Park, the field moved to the Home of British Motorsport for the first long-distance meeting of the year. Mitchell and Balon began the weekend strongly in Saturday’s free practice sessions, setting the seventh quickest time in the morning before topping the times in the afternoon FP2.

The leading pair of Lamborghinis had opened a healthy margin over the chasing pack, with Balon hanging onto the pace of Malykhin. Balon then moved back into the race lead as Malykhin made his first pit stop after the half-hour marker. Mitchell took over the reins of the #72 Huracán after Balon - who become embroiled in a lively battle with the McLaren of Morgan Tillbrook - made his first stop 15 minutes later.

With Mitchell at the wheel, the Barwell Motorsport car established a lead of just under five seconds, which extended by another second by the time Balon got back behind the wheel for his second stint. Mitchell was back in for the final 45 minutes, in which he maintained a diminishing advantage over another McLaren - with Marvin Kirchhofer in the car.

Despite it coming down to as little as two-tenths of a second in the closing stages, Mitchell controlled the lead to take a deserved victory at the finish, ensuring Lamborghini’s third successive win in the Silverstone endurance event.
