Amigos Team Parker's George Gamble has taken his first ever Porsche Carrera Cup GB victory after profiting from a late error from long-term leader Lewis Plato at Brands Hatch.

JTR's Plato had led the vast majority of the reverse grid encounter but a small error towards the end of an incident strewn race saw him slip from the lead, which handed the intiative to the Carrera Cup rookie Gamble.

Plato was almost three-seconds ahead of the rest of the field but saw his lead wiped out when the safety car entered the fray as the marshals retrieved Greg Caton's stricken GT3 911 Cup car.

That safety car period was subsequently lengthened after yet another incident called the marshals back into action. Minor contact between Am runners Fraser Robertson and Peter Kyle-Henney saw the former launched into a spectacular barrel roll at Clearways.

Robertson emerged from the wreckage unscathed but as the marshals cleared the debris, further rain began to fall which caught Plato out on the restart and Gamble took full advantage.

Having just taken the lead of the race, Gamble immediately began to gallop away from the remainder of the field but a further safety car period, which ultimately developed into a red flag signalled an early end to the race.

Gamble officially crossed the line 2.074s ahead of Tio Ellinas in second as race one winner Dino Zamparelli clinched his second podium finish of the day in third.

Plato had to settle for fourth ahead of JTR stablemate Tom Wrigley in fifth.

Having started the race from pole position, Jamie Orton took the Pro-Am class victory with a sixth place overall finish ahead of Dan Harper in seventh.

Rory Collingbourne took second in the Pro-Am category, marginally ahead of Esmee Hawkey, who rose from 11th to ninth overall and completed the Pro-Am podium.

Elsewhere, Peter Mangion avoided the late race chaos further down the field and subsequently won the Am category ahead of Gary Eastwood.
