Ginetta GT Supercup leader Tom Sharp enjoyed “the perfect weekend” after claiming his second clean sweep of the season at Thruxton.

Sharp arrived in Hampshire with five wins and a second place finish from six races, and left having added a further three wins, pole position and three fastest laps to that total.

“It really has been the perfect weekend,” he said. “We've taken every available point and managed to stretch our points lead a bit further.”

Having qualified nearly one second ahead of closest rival Tom Ingram in the wet, the 20-year-old was equally as fast on slicks, leading the first race from start to finish on an almost-dry track.

His win in race two was even more impressive, easing away from the chasing pack to take the flag six seconds in front of second place.

But the Camberley racer saved his best for last, winning by seven seconds from fourth on the reversed grid, passing Tom Ingram around the outside at Noble en route to victory.

Sharp, now a massive 115 points clear of Ingram in the championship standings, commented: “The conditions have been far from ideal, but we managed to make the best of it in qualifying to take pole in the rain, and that enabled us to control the first and second race.

“The final reverse race was a bit more challenging starting from fourth but the car got stronger as the race progressed and we were able to build a substantial lead by the end.”

His rivals have six weeks to figure out how to stop the runaway leader's relentless charge, with the Ginetta Supercup returning at Oulton Park on June 9/10.
