Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Watson Confident For Knockhill: “We Can Win It”

1 Mins read

Andrew Watson is ready to reignite his Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship challenge at Knockhill this weekend and start closing the gap to championship leader Charlie Robertson.

While Robertson has taken four wins and two second places in the last eight races, a tougher run of meetings for Watson has yielded just one win and two other podium finishes, dropping him seventy points behind his former Ginetta Junior rival.

Despite his rival’s run of form, the Irishman has lost no confidence in his title credentials and feels that the gap to the top if far from unreachable.

“It’s make or break time in the championship now, and we can still win it. There’s only seventy points in it and that can disappear in two races,” said Watson.

“There’s over 300 points still on the table, so we certainly haven’t given up yet. There’s absolutely no reason we can’t win it, we’ve led the championship after three of the six meetings, and it is so up and down. It’s going to be a really interesting end to the season.”

Watson heads into the Knockhill meeting with a strong history at the circuit. Last season he qualified on pole there in the Supercup, taking a podium finish in the final race, having also taken a top three finish at the circuit in the Ginetta Juniors in 2012.

Those previous results put him in buoyant mood as he looks ahead to the meeting, and while he admits Robertson has been impressive so far this campaign, he feels he could have the upper hand north of the border.

He added: “It’s going to be an interesting weekend at Knockhill, it’s always so tight around there and they’ve changed the circuit a little bit since last year. It’s always my favourite circuit of the season.

“Charlie has been really strong this year and fair play to him, he’s beaten us hands down at some tracks. He’s certainly been helped by the Formula 4 experience from last year though, and it’ll be really interesting to see what he’s like at Knockhill where they didn’t go last year.”
