Watson Bids For More Of The Same In Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

The opening meeting of the 2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup saw three different winners across three races, with the one constant being Irish racer Andrew Watson, who graced the podium after each outing. Ruth Harrison reports.

Andrew Watson (Douglas) arrives leading the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup after he secured a first, second and third place at Brands Hatch, but with a win and a third place under his belt already, Charlie Robertson (HHC) is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Championship newcomer Luke Davenport (United Autosports) shone in the final race in Kent, taking a win for the team who were also making their debut in the series. However, the same can’t be said for teammate and former Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup champion Carl Breeze, who failed to score in races two and three and can be expected to come out fighting here in Leicestershire.

Having already secured his first podium of the season, Tom Oliphant (Century) will be participating in two championships this weekend, splitting his time between here and Oulton Park, where he will compete in the opening round of the British GT.

Oliphant’s teammate Jamie Orton had high hopes coming into the new season after securing the final win of 2013, and despite a second place in the 2014 opener, two unfortunate DNF’s over the remainder of the weekend has left him with work to do this weekend.

KX Akademy driver David Pittard (SV Racing) is the final driver arriving at Donington Park with a podium in hand after the series newcomer impressed on his graduation from the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge.

Pittard’s 2013 championship rival Will Burns (Academy) adapted to the G55 GT4 car well, enjoying some great racing, whilst teammate Sean Huyton looked strong for a race win after securing pole positions in the reverse grid. He led for a number of laps until contact with another driver punctured his rear tyre and ended his race.

Making a welcome return to the championship were Reece Somerfield (Privateer), James Owen (Sherwood Racing) and Dan Norris-Jones (Priocept) brought equally exciting racing with their rivals both old and new, whilst Fergus Walkinshaw (FW Motorsport) returned with his newly built Ginetta G55 GT4 which he built from the ground up.

Pepe Massot (JHR ) suffered a disappointing return to the grid after a drive through penalty in race one hampered his chances for a strong weekend, although the Spaniard enjoyed a sensational drive through the order from 14th place into the top five in the final outing – so expect more of the same from the young talent this weekend.

Outgoing Ginetta Junior Champion Harry Woodhead (Douglas) suffered a similar fate in his debut within the championship as incidents hampered his points haul despite a strong start to his weekend which saw him qualify fourth and finish within the top five.

As the action gets underway here at Donington Park, the podium champagne could go to any driver, so expect to be enjoying three very close run races and follow the action live on Twitter @GinettaCars.
