Championship battles intensify on TOCA support bill at Silverstone

Championship titles were decided whilst other saw the battle for supremacy further intensify this past weekend (September 25/26) on what was a pulsating two days of track action on the TOCA support package at Silverstone.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship was at its entertaining best as spoils were shared across the weekend’s three races. Scholarship winner Robert De Haan continued his recent run of form in race one as he powered his way to an impressive victory.

Will Jenkins then came to the fore in race two as he claimed a maiden win of the season after a frenetic multi-car battle for top spot. Race three then saw a small piece of history made as De Haan netted his second win of the weekend – albeit by 0.010s – the smallest ever margin in the series’ history.

Dan Cammish stamped his authority on the Porsche Carrera Cup GB with a third win of the year to maintain his position at the top of the standings. Hot on the heels winning at Croft, the Redline Racing driver soaked up a huge amount of pressure from Lorcan Hanafin but didn’t put a wheel wrong to stand on the top step of the podium.

Earlier in the day, reigning champion Harry King kept his slender championship hopes alive by claiming victory in a race which was brought to an early end due to a red flag.

After an action-packed season, the destiny of the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE Trophy title went down to the final few corners of the final race with Dominic Wheatley ultimately reigning supreme.

Wins fell the way of Louie Capozzoli, Charlie Mann and Tom Ovenden over the course of the weekend but it was Wheatley that hung on in the end to be crowned champion, having not taken a win all season.

Champions were also crowned in the Ginetta GT Academy, which was making its first appearance on the TOCA support bill this season. In what is the inaugural year for the one-make series, the GT Academy served up a trio of action-packed races over the course of the weekend.

Martin Willis and Angus Whiteside shared the spoils however it was Toby Trice that wrapped up the main title, with Whiteside cementing his position as the lead rookie.

Rounding off the weekend’s racing were three races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Matias Zagazeta, Georgi Dimitrov and Joseph Look scored a win apiece as the rising stars of single-seaters served up a feast of entertainment.
