David Ashburn is the 2010 Avon Tyres British GT Champion.The 63-year-old Londoner – aided by his Trackspeed Porsche team-mate Glynn Geddie – collected a win and a fifth place finish in Sunday’s penultimate meeting of the championship season at Brands Hatch to gain sufficient points to put the title beyond the reach of any of his rivals.

The newly crowned Ashburn, who now has four race wins under his belt, paid tribute to the drivers who have shared his Porsche and aided his title bid: “I’d like to thank Siso Cunill, Richard Westbrook and, most of all, Glynn Geddie, without whose help during the year I would not be in this position now. The whole team has been fantastic. It’s been a great season for me and I’m delighted.”

The G4 class championship was also settled on Sunday: Christian Dick and Jamie Stanley claimed a brace of podium finishes for Speedworks Motorsport in their Ginetta to lift the title.
