The thrilling battle between Tom Sharp, Carl Breeze, Adam Morgan and Nathan Freke is set for its latest chapter as the 2011 Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup heads to Brands Hatch for its penultimate rounds this weekend.

At the top of the points standings, the pendulum has swung between Sharp and Breeze throughout the season. Sharp won the opening six races in a row, but has been slowly been clawed back by Breeze. Three wins saw the Total Control Racing driver take the top spot, but a triple podium at Knockhill saw IDL's Sharp move back on top, with five points now separating the two.

Morgan and Freke have yet to top the championship standings, but both remain in contention despite varied seasons. For Ciceley Racing's Morgan, incredible consistency has seen him reach the podium fifteen times, more than any other driver, with this keeping him in the championship battle throughout the campaign.

Century Motorsport's Freke started the season slowly, with mechanical woes and bad luck stopping him from challenging early on. However an incredible run over the last five meetings has seen him finish off the podium just once in thirteen races. With six of them wins, Freke now sits just twenty-five points off Sharp with two meetings left.

The G50 class battle has been equally dramatic. Tom Ingram led the way by a long distance earlier in the season, however nightmare weekends at Croft and Snetterton allowed his rivals to close within a handful of points. Plans Motorsport's Ingram has fought clear again though and heads to Kent with a 42 point advantage over his rivals, including Team Pyro's Jody Fannin, FML's Aaron Williamson, Tollbar Racing's Jake Hill and Richardson Racing's brother and sister partnership, Andrew and Louise Richardson.
