Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Wrigley “Really Happy” With Second Supercup Win

1 Mins read

Tom Wrigley has expressed his delight after making it two Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup wins in two meetings with victory in the final race of the Knockhill weekend.

Heading to Scotland with confidence high after carding an emotional maiden win at Snetterton just two weeks prior, Wrigley was once again showing impressive pace in his Rob Boston Racing G55 in Scotland.

Qualifying in the top five for the second time this season, Wrigley secured two hard-fought fifth place finishes in the first two races before slotting onto the front row for the reverse grid final race.

Wrigley initially lost ground to Ollie Jackson but was quickly back ahead of the former BTCC racer at the first corner on lap three, allowing his focus to turn to passing race leader Reece Somerfield.

After being stuck behind him for a few laps, a slick move into Scotsman gave him the lead. Wrigley didn’t look back from there and pulled clear to take the victory by nearly five seconds over championship leader Tom Oliphant.

That was a bit harder than the one at Snetterton,” said Wrigley. “I had a lot to contend with, passing, overtaking people so I’m really happy with that one.

I noticed he [Somerfield] had a lock up on the previous lap so I thought the time to do it would be then and I had to do it with all the boys catching me up behind.

“I just had to get it done. It was absolutely lovely to pull away after that, I got to enjoy the fabulous circuit here at Knockhill.”

The result consolidates Wrigley’s seventh place in the championship standings and moves him eleven points shy of Somerfield and the coveted top six as the series prepares to head to Rockingham in two weeks’ time.

Hopefully we can get a bit of testing done between now and the next round, so we can come home with some more spoils at Rockingham,” he concluded.
