Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Watson: “It’s Been A Good Day At The Office”

Andrew Watson has expressed his delight at taking his fourth and fifth wins of the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup season at Brands Hatch today (11th October), though is frustrated he hadn’t come into the final meeting of the year in contention for the title.

Watson kicked off the season at Brands in April with a superb podium treble to lead the championship after the opening weekend, a points lead he had also held after Oulton Park in June.

The Douglas Motorsport racer has had some tough meetings since though, Croft and Snetterton in particular, leaving him down in fourth in the standings with the final three races at Brands to go.

The finale weekend has gone perfectly to plan for the Irishman so far, with him overhauling pole-sitter David Pittard in race one for victory, before leading from lights-to-flag in race two for a dominant seven second success.

While pleased with the wins, Watson feels the victories are slightly hollow with him not having been in the hunt for the title.

“The wins are a little bit tarnished as we would have liked to have come to this meeting with at least a chance of the championship,” Watson reflected.

“We started the year really well and have had some really good meetings, it’s just two bad weekends that have put us out of the hunt.

“I’ve shown again that I can beat these guys though, so it’s been a good day at the office and I’ve not won two races in a day before so that’s nice. I’m really looking forward to the final race now.”
