Oliver and Grahame Bryant completed a perfect weekend in the Bahrain Classic Challenge at the Bapco Bahrain GT Festival today. They won Race Two to complete a fantastic double after also previously topping the timesheets in Practice and Qualifying. Driving their 1964 Shelby Cobra, the Bryants won the meeting’s second event with a massive gap of 55.128 seconds from the rest of the pack. Guillermo Fierro in a 1960 Maserati T61 was the runner-up, while Edwin Stucky and Ludovic Cholley sharing the duties in a 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona completed the podium placers in third. They were 1m 48.311s off the winners’ pace. In fourth were Peter Muelder and Christian Traber in a 1965 Bizzarrini 5300 GT, fifth was Malte Muller-Wrede in a 1965 Marcos 1800 GT, and in sixth were Jan Gijzen and Anthony Schrauwen in a 1958 Lister Knobbly. Only 11 of the cars that started Race Two were classified. The Bahrain Classic Challenge was held in co-operation with Patrick Peter’s Sixties Endurance Racing Series, which is a popular category featuring iconic machines and usually found at Europe’s premier venues. The Sixties Endurance Racing Series added a historic flavour to the Bapco Bahrain GT Festival.
