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.

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.

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.
