India's Sailesh Bolisetti and teammate Phil Glew clinched victory in the second race of the British GT championship here on Saturday after having finished a disappointing fifth in the first race.

Bolisetti crossed the finish line 27 seconds in the lead from the second-placed Ginetta, clinching his maiden victory in the series.

The weekend had started on a positive note for the Vizag pilot with his Lotus Sport UK team finishing third and first in the two official practice sessions, but technical gremlins prevented the duo from exploiting the performance of their Lotus Evora GT4 during the qualifying sessions.

The championship returns to Britain where the third round will be held at Rockingham on June 9.
