Croft crowd entertained by all-action TOCA support championships

Croft Circuit played host to a memorable seventh event of the season for the TOCA support package this past weekend (September 18/19) as five championships served up all-out action for the huge crowd in attendance.

Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the North Yorkshire venue and approaching the business end of the season, every point was crucial as title contenders fought tooth and nail across both days.

Dan Cammish hit the top of the standings in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as he clinched victory on home turf. Starting from pole position, the Yorkshireman didn’t put a wheel wrong as he claimed victory. Kiern Jewiss would do the same in race two.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup saw the pendulum once again swing between protagonists Adam Smalley and Tom Hibbert during the weekend’s three races.

After storming to pole position, Hibbert produced a commanding lights-to-flag victory in the opener before Smalley struck back in race two. Josh Rattican then made it three different winners from three races as he stormed to victory in the final bout.

Making a welcome return to the BTCC support bill was the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and it too staged a pair of frenetic contests. Race one would see a late safety car set up a one-lap shootout which was ultimately won by Magnus Kriklywi whilst Steven Dailly triumphed in race two.

Dan Zelos continued to make strides in his quest for championship glory in the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE UK. Sitting in second place for much of the opening race, the Excelr8 Motorsport driver pounced in the closing stages to wrestle the win from Jack Davidson.

Race two proved to be a pulsating encounter as Isaac Smith held off the charging Max Bird to claim victory, with hometown hero Max Coates giving the crowd plenty to cheer as he finished third.

Rounding out the weekend’s action were a trio of sensational races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. After storming to a pair of pole position starts, McKenzy Cresswell enjoyed a dream outing as he netted a brace of wins.

Dougie Bolger meanwhile became the tenth different winner in the single-seater series as he triumphed in an entertaining reverse grid bout.
