Supreme Wrigley Cruises To Donington Supercup Win


Tom Wrigley has extended his early advantage in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with a sublime lights-to-flag victory in the opening race at Donington Park.

Wrigley was rarely troubled on his way to a second victory of the season so far, with Jamie Orton unable to match his pace over the course of the fifteen lap encounter.

The closest Orton got was prior to an early safety car period, caused by an off for John Wall at the Craner Curves, but once the racing restarted Wrigley was able to get an immediate break from the pack behind.

The Rob Boston Racing ace held a lead of over two seconds for most the second portion of the race en-route to victory, with Orton a fairly comfortable second throughout in his Triple M Motorsport G55.

Behind, Ben Green ran third into the safety car period following some close battling with Will Burns, but it all went wrong for the former at the restart with a slide wide across the grass coming out of the chicane.

That promoted Burns into a third place that he held to the finish, keeping Carl Boardley at arms length throughout, with Tom Hibbert not far behind to round out the top five.

The battle for sixth position went down to the final lap between Total Control Racing team-mates Mark Davies and Callum Pointon, the former getting the spot, with Rob Wheldon, Rob Gaffney and the recovering Green completing the top ten.

A dramatic conclusion to the AM class battle saw the battling James Guess and Colin White come to blows on the final lap, promoting Grahame Tilley to an unexpected class win ahead of Fraser Robertson and the recovering Guess.
