Leading lights of TOCA support championships head to Oulton Park

Oulton Park not only provides the latest stop on the calendar for the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship this weekend (July 31/August 1) but also the TOCA support package, with five championships aiming to take centre stage.

Fresh off the back of a five-week summer break, the battle for supremacy across the variety of categories that share the limelight with the BTCC will not want to be missed in front of an unrestricted crowd at the Cheshire venue.

Just three points separate the top four drivers in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship as they make their first appearance at Oulton since 2019.

Despite yet standing on the top step of the podium, consistency has proven to be key for Seb Hopkins who leads the way and he will be eager to clinch a maiden win. Tom Edgar, Liam McNeilly and Will Jenkins are hot on the heels of Hopkins however and all of them will be keen to topple him.

Arguably the one to watch will be R Racing’s Callum Voisin, who arrives at Oulton Park coming off the back of a sensational hat-trick of wins at Brands Hatch.

Things are as equally close in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup, with Adam Smalley and Tom Hibbert split by just five points. Expected to be in the mix for the title this year, the pair have made impressive starts to their campaign with Smalley emerging as one of the leading lights.

Behind them, the likes of Josh Rattican , Carlito Miracco, Tom Emson and Steve Roberts will all be worth keeping an eye on as they bid to chase down the top two.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB has made a number of headlines this year already and you can expect that more will be made over the course of the weekend’s two scheduled contests.

The season so far has seen plenty of thrills and spills but it is former champion Dan Cammish that holds the initiative, albeit it by two points over Kiern Jewiss. Throw into the mix the likes of Lorcan Hanafin, Will Martin and reigning champion Harry King and you begin to see why this season is proving to be one of the best for the series.

Blockbuster wheel-to-wheel entertainment will be guaranteed to be provided by the MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship too. Providing a pivotal step on the UK motorsport ladder, the one-make tin top series has been in fine form.

Max Bird enters the weekend as the driver to beat however with the likes of Lewis Brown, Dan Zelos, Sam Weller and James Macintyre chasing him down, all bets are off in terms of who could end the meeting on top of the pile.

Rounding out the weekend’s action will be a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certfiied by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. James Hedley leads the way in the single-seater ranks however the duo of Matthew Rees and McKenzy Cresswell aren’t far away.

Brands Hatch provides backdrop to blockbuster TOCA support race action

Brands Hatch played host to a bumper two days of TOCA support race action this past weekend (June 26/27) as the 2021 season ramped up.

Callum Voisin wrote his name into the history books of the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship as he became one of only a handful of drivers to win all three races on the same weekend.

Entering the third event of the season as one of the form drivers, the R Racing ace didn’t put a wheel wrong as he stormed to pole position and then went on to triumph in each contest, vaulting him into title contention.

Behind, the trio of Liam McNeilly, Seb Hopkins, Josh Miller filled the remaining podium places however none of them could ultimately stop Voisin from scoring a famous hat-trick around the Kent venue.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup delivered three breathtaking encounters around the tight and twist Indy layout as Carlito Miracco, Adam Smalley and Tom Hibbert shared the spoils.

Miracco had to dig deep for his victory in the opener – the championship’s 250th race – as he withstood pressure from the charging Smalley. There was no stopping the latter in race two however as he surged to his third win of the campaign.

Race three proved to be one of attrition as Hibbert and James Blake-Baldwin had those watching trackside on the edge-of-their-seats as their battle for victory went down to the wire, with Hibbert narrowly prevailing in the end.

There was plenty of drama in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as Dan Cammish and Harry King found themselves in the wars. Coming together in race one, the pair were unable to fight their way to victory – leaving the door open for others to take centre stage.

Lorcan Hanfin continued his fine start to the campaign with a superlative victory in race one before Will Martin reigned supreme in the second bout.

Further tin top thrills were provided by the MINI CHALLENGE JCW, which served up three action-packed races. Max Bird, Max Coates and Dan Zelos were the drivers to beat over the course of the weekend, each taking a win apiece.

Rounding out the weekend’s action were a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Zak Taylor scored victory in the reverse grid bout before James Hedley and Matias Zagazeta also triumphed.

TOCA support championships head to Brands Hatch for latest chapter of the season

Nearly a fortnight on from an action-packed two days of racing at Snetterton, the TOCA support package charges into Brands Hatch this weekend (June 26/27) for what is shaping up to be a blockbuster third meeting of the season.

Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship around the famous Indy circuit, five categories will continue their campaigns in front of a 4000-strong trackside crowd once again.

It is set to be a momentous weekend for the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup as it celebrates a special milestone, with the opening contest at the Kent venue being the championship’s 250th since launching in 2011.

Adam Smalley made a near-perfect start to his title challenge at Snetterton, scoring a pair of lights-to-flag victories, however a race three retirement has left him trailing Tom Hibbert in the points. All eyes will undoubtedly be on these two as they renew their battle at the front however they won’t be the only one’s bidding for glory.

Josh Rattican – the winner of race three at Snetterton – and team-mate Tom Emson will be in the mix over the course of the weekend’s three races, as will the likes of Carlito Miracco and James Blake-Baldwin.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship is proving to be just as exciting and unpredictable as ever with a mammoth grid of youngsters serving up bumper-to-bumper thrills around almost every turn.

Tom Edgar, Will Jenkins, Callum Voisin, Liam McNeilly, Aston Millar and Seb Hopkins have all featured towards the sharp end of the grid across the opening two events and will undoubtedly continue to be in the battle for silverware once more.

Dan Cammish made a triumphant return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB as he scored a win and a second to establish an early lead in the points. In what is already showing signs of being a hotly contested season in the one-make category, the Redline Racing ace will be keen to extend his points lead.

Just six points separate Kiern Jewiss, defending champion Harry King and Lorcan Hanafin from Cammish, and with the likes of James Dorlin, Lewis Plato and Will Martin also in the conversation, all bets look to be off in terms of predicting who will reign supreme.

Further tin top thrills around Brands Hatch will come in the shape of the MINI CHALLENGE JCW over the course of the weekend. Delivering some breathtaking moments last time out, the one-make championship is expected to deliver three unmissable races.

Lewis Brown scored a pair of wins at Snetterton and heads into series’ second event of the year leading the way. Hot on his heels however sits Sam Weller, Max Bird, Brad Hutchinson and Dan Zelos, to name but a few, and any one of them could hit the front.

Rounding out the weekend’s action will be a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. James Hedley maintains his advantage at the standings summit however the chasing pack is growing and he’ll need to be on top form if he is to leave Brands Hatch still leading.

Sunday’s coverage will be broadcast live on ITV3 starting at 11:00.

TOCA support package serves up spectacular entertainment at Snetterton

Snetterton played host to the latest rounds across the TOCA support championship this past weekend (June 12/13) and there was action across the board.

On a weekend where spectators made a triumphant return in scorching temperatures, the supporting cast of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship took centre stage around the popular Norfolk venue.

One of the most highly-anticipated spectacles over the course of the weekend was two races from the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, which featured former champions Dan Cammish and Harry King, as well as a number of others.

Lorcan Hanafin looked as though he had spoiled the party after qualifying on pole and winning on the road in race one, however a time penalty for being out of position on the start saw Cammish mark his return to the series with a win.

Reigning champion King then came to the fore in race two as he surged into the lead and looked on course to open his account for the year. It wasn’t to be though as a time penalty for exceeding track limits saw the Team Parker Racing drive drop down the order, with Kiern Jewiss triumphing instead.

The battle for supremacy in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship intensified during both days as the next generation of motorsport stars delivered three breathtaking contests.

Despite the safety car bringing proceedings to an early close in race one, Callum Voisin was declared the winner ahead of Will Jenkins and Liam McNeilly. Race two would then see McNeilly go on to score a breakthrough win in the series as he edged out the rapid Tom Edgar.

Having come close during the two earlier races, Edgar finally scored victory in the third and final race as he fended off the advances of Jenkins and McNeilly – each of whom had sensational weekends as they picked up silverware in all three encounters.

Kicking off its 10th Anniversary season, the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup provided further one-make thrills as they too delivered a trio of memorable races.

Tipped by many as a credible title contender, Elite Motorsport’s Adam Smalley wasted no time in hitting the ground running as he scored victory in races one and two. The former Ginetta Junior champion had looked on course to make it a hat-trick until contact, whilst in contention for the lead, forced him to retire.

As Smalley was left to watch on from the sidelines, Josh Rattican took full advantage to cap off an impressive debut in the category to score victory.

The MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship also lifted the curtain on its 2021 season at Snetterton, and it too made its mark around the challenging 2.97-mile circuit.

After narrowly missing out on pole position by little over two tenths of a second, Lewis Brown made the perfect start to the new campaign as he triumphed ahead of Max Bird and Sam Weller in race one.

Brown doubled his tally for the weekend in race two before Brad Hutchinson came to the fore in race three to triumph for MotorsportApps.com with MPHR.

Rounding out the weekend’s action were a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Showcasing the latest crop of single seater stars, a bumper grid went wheel-to-wheel with Matthew Rees and Georgi Dimitrov sharing the spoils.

The TOCA support package will join the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch in a little under two weeks’ time on June 26/27, for the next chapter of the 2021 campaign.

TOCA support championships revved up for Snetterton scorcher

After a five week break, the TOCA support package blasts back into life at Snetterton this weekend (June 12/13) with two championships looking to pick up where they left off last time out at Thruxton and a further three lifting the curtain on their 2021 campaigns.

Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the Norfolk venue, the weekend will also see spectators make a triumphant return trackside for the first time in more than 18 months.

Undoubtedly set to entertain those in attendance will be the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, with three races scheduled to play out around the 2.99-mile circuit. At Thruxton, the next generation of motorsport stars arguably stole the show and you’d be hard pressed for them not to do the same again.

Tom Edgar and Callum Voisin shared the spoils at the high-speed Hampshire venue however they were just two of several standout performers. Seb Hopkins, Aston Millar, Freddie Tomlinson and Will Jenkins all featured at the front and each one of them, along with many more, will be keen to become the latest race winner.

The 10th Anniversary season of the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup begins this weekend and it fields a bumper grid of Pro and Pro-Am competitors that are ready to embark on what will be a frenetic battle for supremacy.

Some of the headline names to line up on the grid include 2020 title contenders Tom Hibbert and Adam Smalley; whilst the likes of Tom Emson, Josh Rattican and Carlito Miracco will all be expected to be in the mix for outright honours too.

One of the most eagerly-anticipated categories to get underway this year is the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Boasting an ultra-competitive grid, many eyes will be focused on the battle between defending champion Harry King and returning double champion Dan Cammish.

Having been left without a BTCC drive this season, Cammish has returned to the series he once dominated and is set to take the fight to King, who reigned supreme in dominant fashion last year. It won’t just be about Cammish and King though, with a host of renowned names eager to make their mark.

James Dorlin, Kiern Jewiss, Lewis Plato, Lorcan Hanafin and Jamie Orton are just a handful of drivers that could stake their claim to what is already being billed as one of the closest Carrera Cup GB seasons in recent memory.

Another championship that is set to blast into life will be the MINI CHALLENGE JCW. The one-make series proved to be a smash-hit last year on the TOCA package and more edge-of-the-seat thrills are expected once again this year.

With a blend of experienced and rookie drivers making up this year’s grid, all bets look to be off as the chase to follow in the footsteps of 2020 champion Nathan Harrison kicks off.

Rounding out the weekend’s action will be a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Home to the latest crop of single-seater stars, James Hedley holds the early advantage after claiming a pair of wins at Thruxton.

2020 Season Review: Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Having twice finished as runner-up, Will Burns came good in 2020 as he was crowned Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion after producing a sensational season-long performance.

Entering the season as one of the title favourites and hungry to finally lift the coveted crown, the Rob Boston Racing driver ensured that third time was the charm for him to follow in the footsteps of former winners Harry King and Charlie Ladell.

Burns kicked his campaign off with a double win at Donington Park before then embarking on a relentless points-scoring streak that would see him net a further three victories – at Croft and Snetterton – as well as a host of podiums too.

Taking the fight to the former BTCC racer over the course of the campaign was Tom Hibbert and series newcomer Gus Burton.

Each leading the standings at some point during the year, Hibbert and Burton chalked up three and five wins of their own respectively however neither of them would be ultimately able to stop the juggernaut that was Burns.

As the season wore on, the duo of Adam Smalley and Jamie Falvey also came to the fore towards the front of the field, netting six wins between each other, and adding further intrigue in the battle for overall honours.

Putting himself to within touching distance of the crown following a virtuoso performance at Snetterton, Burns entered the final event of the season needing just to finish to finally wrap up the coveted crown – and he did just that.

Powering his rear-wheel-drive machine to a brace of second place finishes, the 30-year-old was deservedly crowned champion for the first time after several missed attempts.

Elsewhere, the Pro-Am class saw Colin White regain the crown he had lost last year whilst Stewart Lines became the inaugural Amateur title winner, edging out Carl Garnett by just two points come the end of the year.

Champions to be crowned throughout unmissable TOCA support package

It won’t just be the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship that will crown champions at Brands Hatch this weekend (November 14/15) as titles will be decided throughout the TOCA support package as well.

Taking centre stage alongside the UK’s premier motorsport series since the 2020 campaign roared into life back in August, each support championship has served up a feast of entertainment over the course of the past three and a half months.

In the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, a three-way battle between Bailey Voisin, Tom Lebbon and Josh Rattican will come to a head across two blockbuster encounters. All three have been a force to be reckoned

Voisin enters the weekend in the box seat, holding an 11-point lead over Lebbon who is looking to make history as the first-ever Scholarship winner to win the main prize in their first year. Rattican meanwhile is a further ten points back, well within striking distance.

Will Burns sits on the cusp of being crowed Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion for the first time, having been runner-up on two previous occasions. The Rob Boston Racing driver has been the man to beat for a majority of the season, scoring no less than five victories and a further eight podiums to-date.

Burns’ nearest challenger is Gus Burton, who has proven to be a revelation during his maiden campaign. Burton will need things to fall his way however he has shown he is more than capable of running towards the front in the ultra-competitive series.

The Quaife MINI CHALLENGE has proven to be a smash-hit during its first year on the TOCA support package and it too will crown a champion around the Indy circuit of the famous Kent venue.

Nathan Harrison holds the lead but with Ant Whorton-Eales, Dan Zelos, Tom Rawlings and Max Bird all hot on his heels, the stage is set for an enthralling battle for supremacy.

It’s set to be all to play for in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost as the single-seater category brings the curtain down on another season with three scheduled contests.

Zak O’Sullivan and Luke Browning are tied on points so it will be a simple case of whoever outscores the other will be crowned champion.

One championship that has already been settled is the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, with Harry King have secured an unassailable lead last time out at Snetterton. King has been the benchmark driver during his rookie year and will undoubtedly look to put the exclamation point on what has been a scintillating campaign.

Titles decided during dramatic Brands Hatch TOCA support showdown

Alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch this past weekend (November 14/15), high drama ran throughout the TOCA support race championships as titles were decided and champions were crowned.

Bringing the curtain down on an unprecedented season which has consisted of nine events crammed into just three-and-a-half months, treacherous weather conditions added to the spectacle over the course of two blockbuster days at the Kent venue.

History was made in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship as Tom Lebbon secured the title following a tense finale. Tallying a pair of second place finishes, the Elite Motorsport driver became the first Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner to win the overall crown at the first attempt.

Lebbon had been in the thick of a three-way title fight alongside Josh Rattican and Bailey Voisin for a majority of the season but came good at the end, triumphing in sensational style. Rattican and Josh Millar would claim the final race wins of the season.

In the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup, Will Burns was finally crowned champion after a superlative campaign. Having twice been a runner-up in the series, the Rob Boston Racing driver made no mistake this year as he paired raw speed with consistency to net the title.

Burns wrapped the championship up in the opening encounter as Adam Smalley and Gus Burton shared the remaining spoils of the 2020 season.

Having made their mark during their first year on the TOCA support bill, the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE signed off a stellar debut season with two enthralling bouts. As Max Bird and Lewis Brown took a win apiece, Excelr8 Motorsport’s Harrison held his nerve to deliver too formidable drives which would prove good enough for the title.

After clinching the title at Snetterton last month, Harry King put an exclamation point on his domination of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB with another stunning display. Sweeping the competition aside this year, the Porsche GB Scholarship winner racked up his 11th and 12th wins of the season to sign off the year as a worthy champion.

The final title to be decided around the Indy layout was the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, with Luke Browning emerging as the victor in dramatic circumstances.

Zak O’Sullivan won the final round of the year however heavy rain hit the circuit and, on the grounds of safety with the entire field on slick tyres, the race was red-flagged. Half points were awarded and that swung the pendulum back to Browning, crowning him champion by four markers.

BTCC Season Finale at Brands Hatch to go ahead as planned

Series organisers, TOCA, have confirmed that the British Touring Car Championship season finale at Brands Hatch on November 14/15 will go ahead as originally planned.

This past Saturday (October 31) saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson address the nation and announce that England will enter into a four-week national lockdown from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd December at the earliest to combat the spread of coronavirus.

In light of the restrictions that are associated with this impending lockdown, the Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has confirmed that elite sport will continue behind closed doors during this next lockdown period.

Since the resumption of racing on July 4th, the BTCC has been classified under the elite sport bracket and has operated behind closed doors, without spectators. The BTCC will therefore continue to race, bringing the curtain down on its 2020 campaign at Brands Hatch and crowning a champion.

Titles will also be decided on the TOCA support package as the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup, Porsche Carrera Cup GB and Quaife Mini Challenge take centre stage as well.

The BTCC has worked tirelessly to maintain the safety of its drivers, teams, staff and all personnel through its own strict protocols that actually exceed those of the government guidelines. TOCA will continue to ensure those protocols are strictly adhered to, so as to provide a very safe and secure environment for all participants at our final event.

Harry King clinches Porsche crown as remaining TOCA title battles intensify at Snetterton

Harry King became the first champion to be crowned on the TOCA support package this year at Snetterton over the course of last weekend (October 24/25), securing an unassailable lead in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB whilst title battles intensified elsewhere.

Joining the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the Norfolk venue for the penultimate event of the season, the TOCA support package served up a sensational two days of racing where the main protagonists battled to stay in contention ahead of next month at Brands Hatch.

One title that has already been sewn up is Carrera Cup GB after King was provisionally crowned champion at Snetterton. Having been the class of the field since debuting at the start of the season, the Porsche GB Scholarship winner put himself out of reach of his main rival and team-mate Josh Webster.

As he has done for a majority of the campaign, King proved to be in a league of his own on-track as he claimed two commanding victories to seal the title with a race meeting to spare.

Will Burns put himself on the verge of clinching the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup crown after scoring a win and a second place during the penultimate event of the season.

Having been vice-champion twice, the Rob Boston Racing driver is now within touching distance of the title after another strong performance. Burns claimed a lights-to-flag victory in the opening encounter before Adam Smalley and Gus Burton went on to triumph later in the weekend.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship is delicately poised heading into the Brands Hatch finale with just 11 points separating Bailey Voisin and Tom Lebbon at the summit of the standings.

Scholarship winner Lebbon enjoyed a dream weekend around the challenging 2.97-mile track as he powered his way to a sensational hat-trick of race wins. The Elite Racing ace became the first driver in two years to complete the clean sweep, and he provisionally wrapped up the Rookie title as well.

It’s set to be a tense showdown in the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE JCW in November as Nathan Harrison bids to covert his now 27-point lead over Ant Whorton-Eales and Dan Zelos into championship silverware.

Harrison produced a stunning drive in the opening encounter to tally his third win of the season before Isaac Smith held off Max Coates to claim his maiden victory in the series in race two.

Elsewhere, Zak O’Sullivan and Luke Browning shared the spoils across three enthralling F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost races to set up a thrilling finale that will see the pair head to Brands Hatch level on points.

All to play for as TOCA support package descends on Snetterton

It’s all to play for on the TOCA support package this weekend (October 24/25) as five championships descend on Snetterton for what will be the penultimate event of the 2020 season.

Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the Norfolk venue, title battles are set to reach fever pitch ahead of next month’s season finale at Brands Hatch.

In the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, Bailey Voisin heads to Snetterton as the driver to beat despite enduring a weekend to forget at Croft last time out. Scoring seven wins so far this year, the R Racing driver has been in superlative form and he will need to continue that if he wants to remain at the summit of the standings.

Hot on the heels of the teenage sensation however are a host of hungry contenders that are all keen to claim the crown. Scholarship winner Tom Lebbon has been a revelation whilst Josh Rattican finds himself in a fine run of form which has included three wins across the last four meetings.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup is heading towards a fascinating crescendo with Will Burns in the box seat with five races remaining. Burns has twice been a runner-up in the series and is hoping this is finally the year he clinches the coveted crown, however he has fierce opposition to beat before doing that.

Rookie Gus Burton is Burns’ closest challenger whilst Tom Hibbert, Adam Smalley and Jamie Falvey may yet have their say on the destiny of the title too.

Harry King’s maiden year in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB has been nothing short of mesmerising and the Team Parker Racing driver will this weekend bid to take a step closer to the overall title.

Holding a 28-point lead over nearest rival Josh Wester, the Scholarship winner enters the penultimate event of the campaign as the driver to beat, and you’d be hard pressed to bet against him given his performances this year.

Two races from the MINI CHALLENGE JCW Championship is bound to get pulses racing also as a bumper grid embarks on their fourth event of the season. Serving up a feast of entertainment wherever they go, the one-make tin top category sees just a solitary point separating the top two, Ant Whorton-Eales and Nathan Harrison.

The pair have been the standout performers so far this season however both will need to keep an eye on the chasing pack as the likes of Dan Zelos, Max Bird and Lewis Brown are all in the mix too.

Rounding out the weekend’s action will be three contests from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Just 13 points separate Luke Browning and Zak O’Sullivan at the top of the standings.
