The pair, who race in a Beechdean AMR Aston Martin GT4 Challenge, lead the championship by seven points after six rounds.

In Round Five, Wylie start the one hour race before handing over to Jake Giddings at the 15 lap mark, who secured a second place finish.

Giddings started Round Six before handing over to Wylie at the half way stage in third, but a technical infringement at the driver changeover saw the team penalised with a drive through penalty.

This dropped Wylie down to sixth, but he fought back to bring the Aston Martin home in fourth.
