Tom Oliphant has played down his chances of challenging for championship honours in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup this season, despite moving right back into the title picture with a podium treble at Snetterton.
The Century Motorsport ace was the highest points scorer in the championship over the weekend, having taken third, second and first place finishes in the three races, making it eight podiums for the season so far.
While he remains fifth in the standings despite those results, he’s moved just ten points shy of the championship top three, and has closed the gap slightly to championship leader Charlie Robertson.
Although the 23 year old, who dovetails his Supercup efforts with a campaign in British GT, feels the Snetterton results are a good foundation for the remainder of the season, he’s wary of calling himself a true title contender yet.
“We’re not quite there yet, I think I’ve still got a way to go to catch Carl [Breeze] and Charlie [Robertson], but I haven’t put myself in bad shape with the results this weekend,” Oliphant told TCF.
“I leave the weekend a lot closer to the top three in the standings and it’s a brilliant platform to build on come Knockhill and the rest of the season.”
