Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Woodhead “Makes His Mark” With Maiden Podium

1 Mins read

Reigning Ginetta Junior champion Harry Woodhead got off the mark in the 2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with a maiden podium finish during Round Four at Donington Park.

The Douglas Motorsport ace endured a frustrating Brands Hatch opener, in which he followed up a strong fifth place finish in the opener with a pair of retirements.

A by-product of that outing was a three place grid penalty for the opening Donington race, which demoted him from this third place earned in qualifying to sixth at the start.

He maintained a top six place at the start, and then benefitted from dramas for team-mate Andrew Watson and Century Motorsport’s Jamie Orton to scythe his way through to third onto lap two.

Maintaining a comfortable gap to 2012 Supercup champion Carl Breeze behind despite nursing some minor damage after contact in the aforementioned shuffle around, Woodhead brought his Ginetta G55 GT4 home for a well-earned first Supercup podium.

“Going into the race with a three place grid penalty from Brands wasn’t ideal, but I made my mark in the race,” a delighted Woodhead told TCF after the race.

“I got up to third on the second lap, and then made a gap to [Carl] Breeze and maintained it throughout the race. It felt longer than it should, it just kept going and going, but I maintained the pace despite some mechanical damage from the hit and brought it home. Hopefully there’s more podiums to come.”
