Title battles intensify on action-packed TOCA support package at Silverstone

The battle for supremacy in all five TOCA support championships intensified at Silverstone this past weekend (September 24/25) to set up what promises to be a grandstand season finale at Brands Hatch next month. 

In addition to the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship going down to the wire at the famous Kent venue on October 8/9, champions will be celebrated across all one-make categories as the curtain falls on the 2022 season around the Grand Prix circuit. 

James Kellett put himself on the cusp of being crowned the last-ever Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion after producing another commanding performance, winning two of the four races that took place over the course of the weekend. 

Following the news that Ginetta will leave the TOCA package at the end of the season and that the GT4 Supercup will cease to exist after Brands Hatch, the Century Motorsport driver underlined his credentials by strengthening his grip on the coveted title. 

Storming to pole position in qualifying, race one saw Kellett suffer mechanical dramas which allowed Tom Emson to triumph but from there the series pace-setter cemented his status as the driver to beat with a fine double. He would however be prevented from securing a hat-trick as Emson chalked up his second win in the finale.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship is all-but wrapped up after Josh Rowledge scored his eighth and ninth victories of the season. Arriving at the Northamptonshire venue in the pound seat, the R Racing teenager was perfection personified as he charged to two wins on Saturday.

Will Macintyre – Rowledge’s chief title rival – ensured that the fight will go all the way to the final event as he scored victory in a chaotic finale. Taking the chequered flag in third, the Elite Motorsport driver was promoted to top step of the podium after penalties were applied to both Sonny Smith and Rowledge. 

Thrills and spills dominated the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA and when all was said-and-done, Alex Dunne remained the man to beat. Despite not winning a race, the Hitech GP racer preserved his impressive lead in the standings, albeit at a slight deficit to what he arrived with. 

Oliver Gray kept his slender hopes of the clinching the crown alive with a lights-to-flag victory in race three after both Georgi Dimitrov and Louis Sharp had scored a win apiece earlier on.

Five drivers will head to Brands Hatch in contention to lift the coveted Quaife MINI CHALLENGE title. In what was another blockbuster chapter for the tin top series, Sam Weller maintained his advantage out front with a hard-fought victory in the weekend’s final contest. 

Before Weller’s win, Alex Denning – who is one of the aforementioned five drivers that find themselves in the thick of the title battle – served up a superlative display behind the wheel to win the first two races of the weekend. 

Elsewhere, Kiern Jewiss took a step closer to Porsche Carrera Cup GB glory as he boosted his own championship aspirations with a flawless weekend. After charging to pole position in qualifying, the Team Parker Racing driver extended his points advantage with a superb brace of wins.

TOCA support championships produce Thruxton thriller

High speed thrills and spills were in full effect at Thruxton this past weekend (August 27/28) as the TOCA support championships wrote the latest chapter in what is proving to be another pulsating season. 

With the business end of the campaign coming into view, every point on offer proved critical for those in title contention; all of which led to edge-of-the-seat entertainment for those that had flocked trackside. 

James Kellett took a step closer to wrapping up the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup crown. Having been the driver to beat since the get-go, the Century Motorsport ace added two more victories to his impressive résumé to further cement his place at the top of the leaderboard.

Sunday’s second race had to be restarted following a serious incident on the run up Woodham Hill. As a result of the impact, the drivers involved, Colin White and Mike Brown, were taken to hospital for care and are in stable condition.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship saw an abundance of edge-of-the-seat entertainment as the top two took centre stage. Will Macintyre clinched a pivotal victory in Saturday’s opener however he could do nothing to stop series leader Josh Rowledge from hitting back in race two later that afternoon.

Sunday’s third and final contest saw Rowledge recover from a high-speed on the run to the Complex to take his sixth win of the season and thus further extend his championship lead. 

History was made in the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA as Alex Dunne continued his march towards the title. Returning to the Hampshire venue with a healthy lead in the points, the Hitech GP rewrote the record books in commanding fashion. 

Two victories over the course of the weekend – his 10th and 11th of the campaign – saw him break the record for the most victories in a single season and edge nearer to the overall title. Oliver Stewart made it a weekend to remember for the team as he also triumphed for the very first time.

Spoils were shared in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, where the title race took yet another turn. Gus Burton converted pole position into victory in race one before reigning Sprint Challenge GB champion Theo Edgerton came to the fore in race two to claim his maiden win in the series. 

The Quaife MINI CHALLENGE Trophy’s final appearance on the TOCA support bill didn’t disappoint either as the one-make category delivered a pair of blockbuster races.

TOCA support package turns up the heat at Snetterton

Snetterton was the latest destination for the TOCA support package this past weekend (August 13/14), with all five championships writing the latest chapter of their 2022 season in the searing heat. 

Coming off the back of an action-packed weekend north of the border at Knockhill, the supporting cast of the BTCC had those in attendance and watching on television on the edge of their seats as they served up an unmissable show.

Alex Dunne continued his march towards the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA title with a commanding performance in Norfolk. The Hitech GP driver – who has been the driver to beat this year – added another dominant double to his ever-growing tally of race wins, which now sits at nine.

Blasting to pole position, the Irishman was perfection personified in race one to claim victory and he then went onto repeat the feat in race three. JHR Developments Joseph Loake was the only driver to halt Dunne as he triumphed in the reverse grid contest.

Kiern Jewiss and Matthew Graham were the big winners in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, claiming a win apiece. Jewiss had been the driver to beat in qualifying but a track limits penalty had looked like it would prevent him from winning race one.

Following a successful appeal of a five-second penalty, Jewiss was reinstated as the winner having originally taken the chequered flag first. Redline Racing’s Graham bounced back from a scary crash at Knockhill in style as he romped to victory in race two, leading every single lap untroubled.

Three different drivers stood on the top step of the podium in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship. Will Macintyre came out on top of an enthralling multi-car battle for victory in the opener before Kenato Le came to the fore in race two. 

Race three will undoubtedly go down as an all-time classic for the one-make series as championship leader Josh Rowledge strengthened his advantage at the summit of the standings with a superb win. 

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup had a familiar feel to things as James Kellett maintained his supremacy with another virtuous performance. Having taken seven wins from eight races heading into the weekend, the Century Motorsport driver was at it again towards the front of the field.

Lights-to-flag dominance was the story of race one and race two for the points leader however win number three was just a little too far out of reach as Tom Emson held his nerve to score his first win of the year.

There were plenty of thrills and spills in the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE, where two drivers shared the spoils. Fresh off the back of his maiden win last time out at Knockhill, Alex Denning doubled his account for the season with a superlative triumph in race one. 

Denning then repeated the feat in a photo finish with Jason Lockwood before Jack Mitchell got his title charge back on-track with victory in race three, with Lockwood once again proving to be the closest challenger.

There was a familiar story in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup as James Kellett continued his relentless winning streak. Arriving at the Fife venue with a 100% unbeaten record, the Century Motorsport ace was perfection personified. 

Storming to pole position in qualifying, the 24-year-old didn’t put a wheel wrong in race one to triumph before repeating the feat in race two. Kellett had won race three on the road however a post-race penalty saw him excluded and Wes Pearce declared the victor.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship served up a feast of entertainment and a first-time winner over the course of the weekend. Former Scholarship winner Maurice Henry soaked up the applause in race one after holding his nerve to win a shortened opener. 

Points leader Josh Rowledge then proved to be the driver to beat in races two and three as he produced a pair of carbon copy performances to triumph, despite fending off late charges in both.

Rounding out the weekend’s action in Scotland was the latest chapter of the ever-competitive Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Rosland Gold Racing by Century Motorsport’s Gus Burton opened his win account for the campaign as he produced a flawless performance in race one, after a multi-car crash took place on the start-finish line. 

Adam Smalley had looked on course to claim the spoils in race two before being hit with a five-second time penalty in the latter stages.

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.

“We gave Freddie an intensive crash course in what it takes to be a racing driver, from improving his lap times, to developing his race craft and how to set up the car. The Ginetta G56 GTA was the perfect learning car for Freddie and he made huge improvements during our time at Blyton Park.
