TOCA support title battles intensify during thrilling Donington Park weekend

Championship battles intensified on the TOCA support package this past weekend (October 9/10) as Donington Park played host to a sensational penultimate meeting of the year.

On a weekend which saw plenty of high drama in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, the supporting cast took centre stage to ensure they shared the limelight.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship is poised for an action-packed finale after serving up a trio of frenetic contests under the flightpath of East Midlands airport.

Aston Millar entered the weekend as the driver to beat and he finished it having further established his advantage at the top of the standings after clinching two impressive wins.

After watching title rival Liam McNeilly triumph in race one, the R Racing driver struck back in style with a sensational double – the second after a race-long, wheel-to-wheel battle with McNeilly – to extend his lead to 41 points.

The battle for supremacy in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup will go down to the wire. Despite not winning a race, Adam Smalley maintained his advantage over Tom Hibbert and remains on course to clinch a third Ginetta title at Brands Hatch at the end of the month.

Josh Rattican, James Kellett and Carlito Miracco shared the spoils as they each took a win apiece around the 1.97-mile National circuit.

Dan Cammish managed to extend his lead in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB despite not being able to add to his win tally. On what proved to be a pivotal weekend for the fastest one-make series, Cammish bagged a second and third place to clinch a seven-point cushion over Lorcan Hanafin.

Reigning champion Harry King powered his way to an emphatic victory in race one before Kiern Jewiss charged to his fourth win of the season in race two, wrapping up the rookie title in the process.

Elsewhere, the Quaife MINI CHALLENGE saw one of the overtakes of the weekend take place as Jack Davidson made a stunning late dive for the lead in race three. Having charged to victory in the opening contest, Davidson ended the meeting in the same way he started it, on the top of the rostrum.

Max Bird was the other race-winner and he will head into the final event of the season trailing Dan Zelos by just four markers.

Capping off what proved to be a frenetic meeting around Donington Park were three races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost.

Matthew Rees staked his claim for the coveted single seater crown as he stormed back to the summit of the points courtesy of a brace of wins. Georgi Dimitrov meanwhile claimed the top step of the podium in the reverse grid bout.
