Oulton Park provided the backdrop to the latest all-action chapter of what is proving to be an unmissable season for the TOCA support package this past weekend (June 11/12) as five championships served up a feast of entertainment.
Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship in Cheshire, blockbuster thrills and spills ran throughout each series – keeping the bumper trackside crowd and those watching on ITV and ITV4 on the edge of their seats from start-to-finish.
The Porsche Carrera Cup GB had its fair share of thrilling moments across its two races, the first of which was marred by a red flag. Fresh off the back of his win at Brands Hatch, Will Martin was the driver to beat in the opener as he held off the charging Adam Smalley and Kiern Jewiss to win.
Matty Graham came to the fore in race two as he claimed a commanding lights-to-flag victory, having started from pole position.
James Kellett continued his fine start to the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Sueprcup season, adding a further two wins to the three he claimed at the Brands Hatch season-opener last month.
After claiming pole position in style, Kellett was untouchable in the opening bout as he scored victory by a staggering 15 seconds. The Rosland Gold Racing by Century Motorsport driver doubled his tally for the weekend with another superlative performance in race two, maintaining his unbeaten streak.
Kellett’s second win came in astonishing circumstances as a multi-car crash on the run to the chequered flag saw him vault from fourth to first within a matter of metres. Aston Millar and Reece Somerfield – both of whom were involved in the incident – rounded out the podium.
There was plenty of wheel-to-wheel entertainment in the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE JCW as Sam Weller and Jason Lockwood scored a victory apiece.
Saturday arguably belonged to Weller as the Hybrid Tune racer powered his way to the top of the times in qualifying and then converted it into victory in race one. Lockwood then ,mastered tricky conditions in Sunday’s second race to triumph.
The latest chapter of the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA had everyone on the edge of their seats as the motorsport stars of tomorrow produced an unmissable lakeside triple-header.
Alex Dunne continued his dominance with a commanding lights-to-flag victory in race one before Daniel Guinchard and Louis Sharp scored their breakthrough first wins in races two and three.
Bringing the curtain down on the action was a pair of races from the Ginetta GT Academy, which was making its one and only appearance on the BTCC support bill this year.
Enjoying what is proving to be a hugely successful sophomore year, the one-make series boasted a bumper 28-car grid and provided plenty of close racing as Ravi Ramyead scored victory.
Ramyead got the jump on pole-sitter Warren as the lights went out for race one and although he was under constant pressure, held on to win. Ramyead then repeated the feat in race two to complete a remarkable weekend.
