Joint Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship leader Carl Breeze says a podium filled opening to the season at Brands Hatch has filled him with confidence for the next few meetings, starting at Donington Park this weekend (18/19 April).
Breeze got his fifth consecutive Supercup season off to a great start with reigning champions HHC Motorsport, a hat-trick of second place finishes seeing him tie at the top of the standings with team-mate Jamie Orton.
This is in stark contrast to twelve months ago for the Ginetta stalwart, when a pair of retirements in the 2014 season opener had left him fifty points adrift of the eventual champion Charlie Robertson after just three races.
“It’s nice to be at the top of the tree, rather than looking up with a big gap like last year,” Breeze told TCF.
“We made some great gains at Brands Hatch, with the team making Supercup history with a one-two-three finish, and personally with my 100th podium in Ginetta racing and then a couple more towards the next milestone.”
Despite HHC dominating proceedings at Brands Hatch with seven podium finishes across the three races, Breeze feels there is more to come from their partnership in the coming meetings – though is expecting it to get much tougher as a number of rivals find their feet in the series.
“Michael Caine, Bradley Smith, Jack Clarke, Mitchell Hale and co I imagine will go away and get their heads down, maybe do some extra testing, and come back stronger at Donington Park,” Breeze added.
“I would give my car at Brands a nine out of ten, and we know the team are capable of producing a ten out of ten car. Donington, Thruxton and Oulton Park coming up are fantastic circuits for myself and I’m full of confidence for them.”
