The British Grand Prix II was the second round in Season 2, which took place on April 23rd, 2017. The race was contested over 26 laps at the Silverstone Circuit in Silverstone. This marked the second time the British Grand Prix took place in LRL. Last season's winner was eventual champion Apex Melvyn. This race was originally scheduled to take place on April 16th, but was moved back a week due to clashing with the real world Bahrain Grand Prix.

II Payne24 II would start his only LRL race on pole position, and finishing third place on the podium. WOR Button 22 took his first LRL win despite starting 8th after a 5-place grid penalty. Second place was championship leader TOR PePsii. The final classified gap between first and second place drivers is +0:00.073, though in reality Button finished 2 seconds down the road. This is due to the fact that post-race Button and PePsii received 5- and 3-second penalties, respectively.
