Charlie Robertson feels there’s more to come from himself and HHC Motorsport this season, despite them topping the standings at the halfway mark of their first campaign in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup.
Robertson moved back to the top of the Supercup standings at Croft last weekend, taking a pair of second place finishes in the opening two races at HHC’s home circuit.
On both occasions the 17 year old, who had taken his fourth consecutive pole position in qualifying, ran second for the full duration of the races behind former champion Carl Breeze, the pair of runner-up slots taking his podium tally to eight for the season so far.
Those results, coupled with sixth in the final race of the weekend, means Robertson takes a 29 point championship lead into the five week summer break.
“It’s been a good weekend overall, we knew we needed two strong results in races one and two as we were going to struggle with tyres in race three – and that’s what happened,” said Robertson. “We had the legs on Carl [Breeze] in the second race, I just couldn’t quite get him but two podiums in the first two races was good.
“In race three I tried to do my best with the tyres we had, the car became more of a handful because of the lack of grip but I guided it home in sixth to take some important points. We’ve got a long break now before Snetterton, but we won’t rest on our laurels. We need to develop the car more and so we’ll be working hard over the next few weeks.”
