Robertson Eyes More Wins At Thruxton


Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship leader Charlie Robertson is aiming to maintain his advantage at the top of the points standings with more race wins this weekend at Thruxton.

The HHC Motorsport ace has carded two wins already this year, taking one apiece on the opening two weekends of the year at Brands Hatch at Donington Park.

Four podiums in the first six races have given the 2012 Ginetta Junior champion the championship lead, and his focus is now on extending his advantage around the high-speed Thruxton circuit.

During official timed testing earlier this month, his first visit to the track for two years, Robertson ended the day sixth quickest and is brimming with confidence ahead of the weekend’s triple-header.

“Each time we’re on track I’m learning more about the car and the team is developing the set-up and unlocking more and more pace,” said Robertson.

“Brands and Donington were both great weekends and although Thruxton is a different kind of track, unique really, the test a few weeks ago went well.

“I’d obviously like to fight for wins, but if we can score plenty of points and maintain the championship lead, I’ll be more than happy.”
