Ginetta GT5 Challenge

HHC Motorsport Continue Good Ginetta Form

1 Mins read

HHC Motorsport once again proved its pace in the Ginetta Challenge, with the team picking up three top six finishes during Rounds Seven and Eight of the series around the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.

Richard Sykes led the way for the team in qualifying, posting the second fastest time. He ran in second place early on during the twenty minute race, but dropped down the field when he was knocked into a spin at Graham Hill Bend.

He produced a superb fightback though and worked his way back to fifth place before a late safety car. At the restart, a number of cars slipped off into the gravel trap, resulting in the race being stopped and Richard ending up frustrated in fifth.

One of the drivers falling into the gravel was his team-mate Rick Parfitt, who made amends by starring in race two. Starting tenth, he fought his way to a sixth place finish, a career-best finish in Ginetta's. Sykes led the race early on, but ended up being muscled back to fifth.

HHC Motorsport's Charlie Kemp said: “We were a bit unlucky this weekend. Richard again proved to have the pace to run with the leaders but was unfortunately bundled out of the lead in the opening race after some robust racing. Rick made up for his drama in race one by a really good drive in the second race and to be in the top six in a championship as competitive as the Ginetta Challenge is very impressive. We can take a lot of positives away from Brands Hatch.
