In the end the South Africa race was cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, but it could not take the gloss off a successful season for the Wakefield-based team.

Who were the winners as Eastmoor Dragons handed out their end of season awards?Bas Leinders said: “The Optimum Motorsport crew worked hard all year long to conquer the pro-am title with Brendan Iribe and Ollie Millroy and the cherry on top was the overall win of Nick Moss and Joe Osborne, who finished third in the Championship.

“I believe that the celebration of success is very important and increases productivity, as a team we celebrated with all crew members on the Sunday evening after the Barcelona race and it is great that GT Sport was able to organise this award ceremony in the beautiful setting of the Mandarin Oriental Ritz in Madrid.”
