Adam Carroll will be a man on a mission this weekend as he heads into rounds three and four of the British GT championship at Rockingham.

Former A1GP champion Carroll, from Portadown, and his English team-mate Gary Eastwood won round one of the series at Oulton Park but were relegated to second place after their AF Corse Ferrari, with Carroll at the wheel, was deemed to have blocked the Aston Martin of Rory Butcher as it left the pits.

After finishing sixth in race two, Carroll and Eastwood are joint second in the championship behind Butcher and Liam Griffin going into Sunday's two-hour race.

Carroll won at Rockingham last year and also set the fastest lap in the Ferrari 458 Italia and is determined to make up for the Oulton Park disappointment.

He will be joined on the grid by fellow Ulsterman Andrew Watson, also keen to make amends for a first-round setback. The 19-year-old from Donaghmore was making his debut for the Von Ryan McLaren team and was in second when he went off the road.

"A two-hour race will be different for me but I'm determined to get my title challenge under way," said Watson.
