Brands Set For Ginetta G50 Championship Finale

2 Mins read

With only three races left to determine the destination of the 2010 Michelin Ginetta G50 Cup, it's all set up for an almighty title showdown as the series heads to Brands Hatch this weekend for the final meeting of a fascinating season. Dynojet ace Frank Wrathall leads the way with a 60 point advantage over Total Control Racing's Carl Breeze, however with over 100 points still up for grabs and the unpredictable nature of the G50 Cup, the title battle is still wide open.

A topsy-turvy season has seen the title lead switch between the two on multiple occasions, but six maximum points hauls in nine races has seen the pendulum swing in Wrathall's favour at the decisive moment. His cause has been helped by his title rival suffering a tough couple of weekends as well, with just two podium finishes in the last seven races hampering Breeze's championship charge on the final stretch.

Breeze will have to come out all guns blazing to try and snatch the crown, but faces a tough task against a determined Wrathall, who is eager to finally win the title after finishing runner up in each of the last two seasons. It's all set up to be a superb end to a great duel.

It won't be all about the title rivals at Brands Hatch though, with the G50 Cup being the home to a long list of talented, exciting drivers, all eager to end their season's on a high. Top of that list is Century Motorsport's Benji Hetherington, who lies best of the rest in third in the championship, and comes into the meeting as the form driver in the series after winning twice last time out at Donington.

Next up in the Championship standings are Tom Sharp and Adam Morgan, who both picked up their maiden series win at Croft earlier in the year. With neither tasting the winners champagne again since then, both will be hoping to earn one more trip to the top step of the podium before the seasons out.

Add to them podium finishers Chris Dittmann, Freddie Hetherington and Mark Davies, as well as the ever improving Dan Denis and Aaron Williamson, and there will be plenty of action throughout the field to watch, not just at the front. There's also an exciting addition to the G50 ranks for Brands Hatch, in the shape of 2010 Clio Cup champion Dave Newsham, who will be making his debut in the series this weekend. After wrapping up the Clio title in style, the Scotsman will be eager to find his feet quickly and enjoy some battles at the front.
