Breeze Opens Up Supercup Title Race With Silverstone Win

Total Control Racing’s Carl Breeze has moved himself firmly into contention for the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup title after securing his fifth win of the season at Silverstone.

A hugely successful weekend for Breeze saw him secure second place in the weekend’s opening race, before a dominant win in race two. The results means Breeze is now tied on points with long-time series leader Tom Sharp, and just two behind on drop scores.

“Saturday’s race was fantastic, I managed to get three drivers off the start – it was a rocket getaway, looked like I had KERS in the car,” said Breeze. “Winning race two was fantastic, we had so much pace in the car and I have to say special thanks to my engineer Kenny and all the boys at TCR. I call Kenny the Harry Potter, he’s a magician with the car and can solve any problems. We just need to go to Brands focused, we’ve got the momentum.”

Team-mate Jamie Orton had a mixed weekend. Excellent qualifying pace wasn’t rewarded in the opening race, when he went off track on lap three. With his Ginetta G55 sustaining a blown engine, Orton elected to sit out the weekend’s second race.

“Carl’s done a superb job this weekend”, commented TCR team principal Lee Brookes, “We couldn’t have asked for any better from him this weekend, two fantastic races. We knew we could pull back some of the deficit coming back into the championship mid-season but to pull the amount we have with three races to go is incredible.”
