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.
