Oulton Park played host to a memorable two days of TOCA support championship action this past weekend (June 29/30) as the sun shone and the Cheshire venue welcomed a bumper crowd.
Fresh off the back of producing a flawless performance in the Clio Cup Open at Paul Ricard the weekend previous, Jack Young enjoyed further success as he triumphed in the opening Renault UK Clio Cup encounter.
Having narrowly missed out on pole position, the Northern Irishman got the better of Max Coates and Jamie Bond to power his way to a third victory of the season. In race two, Young’s chances of a second win were extinguished exiting the first turn as he hit the barriers hard exiting Old Hall, ending his race on the spot.
Coates would take advantage to lead Bond and Ben Colburn across the line to record his fifth win of the year and with it, snatch back the lead in the points after four events.
The Porsche Carrera Cup GB had a familiar face leading the way as Daniel Harper reigned supreme around the picturesque venue. Topping the times in qualifying, the JTR driver fended off a race-long challenge from Lewis Plato to record his latest victory in the one-make series.
George Gamble came to the fore in the second race as he converted his front row start into a commanding victory in front of a packed-out crowd.
In the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup, spoils were shared between Tom Hibbert and Harry King – the latter who remains in control of the championship standings. Hibbert blasted his way to pole position and onto victory in the opening race but was unable to do the same later in the weekend.
King, as he has done on multiple occasions already this year, proved to hot to handle in race two as he piloted his Elite Motorsport machine to the chequered flag in style.
There was plenty of doorhandle-to-doorhandle thrills in the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship too, however none of that fazed Will Martin who continued his impressive run of form in recent events.
Riding a wave of momentum into the weekend, the Richardson Racing driver was perfection personified as he powered his way to victory in both races – throwing himself firmly into title contention at the same time.
Bringing the curtain down on the weekend’s action was a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Honda. Zane Maloney continued his recent run of form with victory in all three races, which not only extended his winning streak to seven in-a-row but also saw him awarded with £10,000.
