Tough Croft Weekend Leaves TCR Frustrated

1 Mins read

Reigning Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup champions Total Control Racing had a frustrating weekend during the latest rounds of the series at Croft.

2012 champion Carl Breeze headed into the weekend second in the points, aiming to cut the gap to championship leader Tom Ingram. The Kings Lynn-based racer ran second throughout the opening race, a result he nearly matched in race two before slipping to third late on, making it eight podium finishes for the season.

The weekend’s final race looked set to produce a third podium of the weekend until contact from Rob Boston forced Breeze into retirement. While he was able to retain second in the points, a hat-trick of wins for Ingram has lost Breeze vital ground in the standings.

Team-mate Mark Davies also suffered mixed fortunes over the weekend. A hard-fought fifth place in the opening race proved to be his best finish of the weekend, with a spin in race two leading to an eighth place finish, a result he improved by one position in the rain-affected final race after an early moment.

The team’s third driver Jamie Orton had a weekend to forget, a blown engine while running in eleventh place in race one ruling him out for the remainder of the weekend.

“It’s good to have been on the podium again with Carl but it was a tough weekend for the team as a whole really,” said TCR principal Lee Brookes. “Mark had some pace but was just a bit unfortunate to be honest and Jamie decided it wasn’t worth trying to fit a new engine after the first race. It’s been a tough one, we’ll be back stronger at Snetterton though.”
