British GT4: Silver Cup And Pro/Am Still To Play For

British GT4: Silver Cup And Pro/Am Still To Play For

Donington Park is set to host an epic showdown for our Ginetta G55 GT4 teams, as Optimum Motorsport and Tolman Motorsport prepare to fight over second in class.

Graham Johnson and Mike Robinson’s Optimum Motorsport Ginetta and the Tolman Motorsport-run G55 driven by David Pattison and Luke Davenport are ready to fend off the ISSY Racing Lotus Evora of Oz Yusuf and Gavan Kershaw.

All three crews retain a chance of finishing as runners-up in the overall class standings behind former Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner and Junior racer Jamie Chadwick, as well as clinching the GT4 Pro/Am title.

Johnson suggested last week that finishing second overall would exceed expectations for his first year in the category, but to do so he and co-driver Robinson need to overturn their four-point deficit to Yusuf and Kershaw who suffered contrasting fortunes at Snetterton.

Tolman’s duo also has designs on finishing second overall and first in Pro/Am, although the deficits of 17.5 and 24 points, respectively, most certainly make them outsiders for both. A second victory of the season could be on the cards though as Pattison and Davenport led comfortably at Snetterton.

In terms of the Silver Cup crown, Aleksander Schjerpen’s double podium at Snetterton means he retains a mathematical chance of claiming the championship, although he does enter the weekend 26.5 points adrift of Chadwick and her teammate.

Elsewhere, Snetterton race winners Fox Motorsport welcome back Paul McNeilly alongside Jamie Stanley, whilst Century Motorsport will also field a second Ginetta for the first time this year in the hands of Ian Stinton and Nathan Freke.

British GT’s #DoningtonDecider is live on Motors TV (Freeview 71 & 240, Sky 447 and Virgin Media 545) this Sunday from 12:45pm.
