At the close of the two hour race at Brands Hatch, Manuel Cintrano and Javier Morcillo recorded their fourth win of the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship (BEC) series in their Mosler MT900R, though only after contact in the closing laps with Andy Schulz’s Ferrari 430.
Most creative agencies are quite frankly rubbish at making car videos, so it comes as something of a surprise when we find one that’s more than just tolerable.
