Godzilla Wins First Fia Gt1 Under Veil Of Controversy

Sumo Power GT-R drivers Jamie Campbell-Walter and Warren Hughes finished third on track, but soon found themselves spraying the champagne in victory lane. In an astounding turn of events, the two Sumo Power drivers were deemed winners of the RAC Tourist Trophy and their names will be forever listed alongside names such as Stirling Moss, Tazio Nuvolari and Graham Hill on the Tourist Trophy.

The two cars that finished ahead of the Nissan GT-Rs on the track were penalized after the checkered flag fell. The winning Aston Martin of Darren Turner and Tomas Enge was excluded for a technical infringement and the second-place Aston Martin of Fred Makowiecki and Thomas Accary received a time penalty for taking too long to come in for a drive-through penalty. Hopefully, Godzilla will continue to breath fire and burn the competition on the track, where these things should be decided.
