Carl Breeze is adamant the 2014 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship battle is far from over, despite the former champion having what he described as his “worst meeting of the year” at Silverstone this past weekend.
Breeze headed into the Silverstone weekend 48 points adrift of championship leader Charlie Robertson after the latter took a win and a second at Rockingham three weeks previous.
While the goal was to take the fight to Robertson at Silverstone and claw some points back in the title race, Breeze found himself unable to as he struggled to match the pace of his adversary in his United Autosports Ginetta G55.
Breeze ran ahead of Robertson in the early stages of both the weekend’s races, but saw his adversary overtake him on both occasions to stretch his lead to 56 with three races remaining.
“We just didn’t have any pace this weekend really,” a dejected Breeze told TCF. “Charlie [Robertson] had so much more pace than me going on to the back straight it was pointless trying to back him up, but we only dropped eight points to him which isn’t too bad considering.
“It was probably the worst meeting of the year really for us though. It wasn’t just me, Luke [Davenport – his team-mate] struggled down in eighth, and with the same car I managed to drag a couple of fourths, which isn’t what we were aiming for from the weekend.
“The pace seems to be sapping away from us round by round at the moment, so we need to try and flip the coin and turn the car back into a racewinner.”
While Breeze is seeing his chances of securing a second Supercup title slipping from his grasp, the Ginetta stalwart heads to Brands Hatch next weekend knowing anything could happen in the final triple-header of the season.
“It is still mathematically possible, but obviously the rounds have eked away which makes it unlikely,” he added.
“It’s definitely not over though, it will only take one bad race for him for it to all turn around quite quickly. Brands is a circuit we’ve won at many times, and we’ll go there with confidence up aiming to win the races.”
