Oliphant Leads SuperCup After Mid-Season Shake Up

Oliphant Leads SuperCup After Mid-Season Shake Up

Tom Oliphant ended HHC Motorsport’s reign at the top of the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup championship standings after the Century Motorsport driver took full advantage of a troublesome weekend for former leader Carl Breeze, who slipped to third in the standings after taking a sole podium finish at Snetterton.

Jamie Orton moved ahead of Breeze in the overall standings, but with the top three split by just 25 points ahead of the first race on Saturday, and Breeze winning two of the three races here in 2014, it’s anyone guess as to who will be leading following the annual visit across the Scottish border.

Will Burns also enjoyed Knockhill in 2014, taking a brace of podiums during his visit. Although a tough weekend dropped him to sixth in the standings, he will certainly be hassling Amigos Tequila Flavoured Beer–backed driver Michael Caine and double podium finisher Reece Somerfield for a spot higher up the order.

Tom Wrigley rounds out ‘the best of the rest’ having taken his maiden SuperCup win in round 17. A result which was made even more poignant after a fire at his family business left him without a race car just days before the track action began. Helped onto the grid by Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson and Rob Boston Racing, he rewarded their efforts with a lights-to-flag victory.

With few drivers opting to make the trip to Knockhill, Ollie Jackson completes the PRO drivers line-up in his Century Motorsport prepared car, and will be joined once again at the team by Osamu Kawashima, who currently lies second in the AM class.

Rounding out the grid in the AM class is series leader Colin White, who has an impressive eight wins to his name this season, whilst Fraser Robertson completes the field and hopes to secure his maiden race win this weekend.

With three races on the cards and a packed grid of V6 muscle, the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup promises no end of action throughout the field. To keep track of the action live from your phone, follow @Ginettacars on Twitter.
