Preview: Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup, Rockingham

7th August 2018 • Ruth Harrison-Davies

The last event at Snetterton really saw a ‘clash of the titans’ as Charlie Ladell (Rob Boston Racing) and Carl Boardley (Carl Boardley Motorsport) locked horns over the championship lead. The duo was split by just one-point heading into the third and final race of the weekend, but tyre choice paid dividends for Ladell who claimed victory after braving slick tyres on a drying track. As a result, Ladell arrives in Corby 20 points ahead of Boardley, but expect the pair to be racing hard for the championship advantage.

In the fight for third, Tom Roche (Rob Boston Racing) continues to lead the way, but a pair of wins last time out has brought Harry King (Elite Motorsport) within five points of the position. Leapfrogging into fifth, Jac Constable (Hart GT) celebrated his second podium result of the season in Norfolk, and will be hoping to claim an outright win this weekend.

Elsewhere, Carl Shield (AK Automotive), Reece Somerfield (Privateer), Angus Fender and Andrew Gordon-Colebrooke (both Century Motorsport) will continue to fight it out over the final spaces in the championship top 10; the quartet currently lying in that order.

In the Am class, Michael Crees (Century Motorsport) extended his advantage at the top of the table thanks to a pair of wins and a second place. Colin White (CWS 4x4 Spares) moved into second position last time out. A pair of second places, plus class victory and fourth overall in the final race of the weekend allowed him to pass Jack Minshaw (Hart GT) for the position. 

Only nine points separate Crees from White though, with Minshaw 31 points behind the leader; so it’s all still to play for in the closing stages of the season. Alex Taylor (Hart GT) currently leads the fight for fourth in class, but it’s very close behind.

Lee Frost (Butler Motorsport) sits just two points behind Taylor in fifth, with David Brooks (Rob Boston Racing) and Lucky Khera (Butler Motorsport) hot on their heeds in sixth and seventh respectively.
