Mixed conditions add to the TOCA support championship drama at Croft

Croft Circuit played host to a quite spectacular two days of TOCA support championship track action this past weekend (October 10/11), with the North Yorkshire venue proving pivotal in deciding who will eventually be crowned champions.

The complexion of the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship turned upside down once again as Josh Rattican and Tom Lebbon shared the spoils. Bailey Voisin had entered the weekend with a comfortable points lead but a nightmare two races for the youngster has meant his rivals have closed up.

Rattican’s third victory of the campaign put his title rivals on notice but it was Lebbon’s race two drive that really turned heads, clinching a dominant lights-to-flag win by more than six seconds.

There were further twists and turns in the battle for supremacy in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup over the course of the weekend, with a trio of contests setting pulses racing.

Will Burns converted pole position into a commanding lights-to-flag victory in race one and then repeated the feat in race two as he soaked up race-long pressure from Adam Smalley and Gus Burton. Race three honours fell the way of Smalley.

The Cayman Islands Porsche Sprint Challenge GB made its debut on the TOCA package and it didn’t disappoint, delivering two breathless encounters around the challenging 2.13-mile circuit.

Former Renault UK Clio Cup vice champion James Dorlin reigned supreme ahead of Theo Edgerton in race one amidst the fading light on Saturday and then proved unbeatable during Sunday’s action-packed race, clinching victory and extending his championship lead at the same time.

Elsewhere, the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE Trophy made its final appearance of the season on the TOCA package and served up a feast of entertainment as a bumper grid went wheel-to-wheel around the challenging BARC operated track.

Harry Nunn proved to be in a league of his own as he stormed to victory in race one ahead of Josh Porter before Andrew Langley triumphed in a truncated second bout.

Two contests from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost rounded off the weekend’s track action at Croft, with Zak O’Sullivan and Casper Stevenson taking a win apiece.
