TOCA support championships deliver all-out Silverstone action

It is set to be a dramatic final weekend of the season amongst the TOCA support championships in under two weeks’ time after an action-packed penultimate meeting of the season at Silverstone.

One title that won’t be decided at the Kent venue however will be the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, which was decided at the Northamptonshire venue as Dan Harper reigned supreme to be crowned champion.

In only his second season in the ultra-competitive championship after previously winning its Scholarship programme, the Northern Irishman became the youngest ever driver to win the title – getting the job done in the opening encounter.

George Gamble enjoyed a peerless weekend out front as he bagged himself a pair of race wins, the first coming in tricky conditions as he rolled the dice and ran with slick tyres on a drying track.

In the Renault UK Clio Cup, the battle for the coveted one-make series title is set to go down to the wire between Max Coates and Jack Young following another exhilarating weekend of racing.

Brett Lidsey claimed his first-ever win in the series in the opener before drama ensured in race two. Young would be victorious and move into the lead of the points as Coates was involved in a multi-car incident, sending him spinning down the order.

James Hedley remains in sight of lifting the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship crown after an action-packed weekend in the one-make series. James Taylor scored a spectacular double whilst Will Martin also triumphed on a sensational weekend for the Juniors – setting up a thrilling showdown.

The Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup will be settled at Brands Hatch too after a pulsating triple-header which saw Harry King return to the top of the pile. Entering the weekend trailing Will Burns, the Elite Motorsport driver stormed to a pair of race wins to put himself in the pound seat with just three more races remaining.

Tom Hibbert triumphed in the third race to maintain his hopes of the title, setting up a three-way fight for the coveted title.

Rounding out the weekend’s action at Silverstone were three more races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Spoils were shared between Louis Foster and Sebastian Alvarez meaning that the battle for the single seater title will be decided at the season finale.
