Points Leader Oliphant Targeting More Wins At Rockingham


Tom Oliphant heads to Rockingham next weekend with another double race win firmly his target as he aims to further extend his Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship lead.

A sensational run of three pole positions on the bounce, six victories in nine races and eleven consecutive podium finishes have helped the Century Motorsport ace build a 59 point lead atop the standings.

The latest of those results came on the annual trip north of the border to Knockhill in Scotland, where Oliphant took two wins and a second place to perfectly replicate his 103 point weekend from Snetterton two weeks prior.

“The Knockhill weekend was absolutely fantastic,” said Oliphant. “We went there and tried to emulate what we did at Snetterton, and scored over 100 points again which is fantastic. I couldn’t really have asked for more, the team, the car, everybody did a brilliant job.”

Oliphant’s record after 20 races compared to the previous Supercup champions:

Year Driver Wins Podiums Fastest Laps Pole Positions Champ. Position Points
2015 Tom Oliphant 7 15 8 3 1st 560
2014 Charlie Robertson 6 13 6 5 1st 526
2013 Tom Ingram 7 18 11 3 1st 617
2012 Carl Breeze 4 14 3 1 2nd 534
2011 Adam Morgan 2 13 2 0 3rd 488

.

Now Oliphant is preparing to return to the scene of his Supercup debut back in 2013 and a podium finish twelve months ago confident of enjoying more success.

He concluded: “Going into Rockingham, there is no reason why I can’t win both races and put it on pole. Historically it’s a circuit that’s been very, very strong for me so I’m looking forward to it!”
