Tom Oliphant and Carl Breeze head into the 2015 Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup season finale at Brands Hatch this weekend in with a shot at being crowned the champion …. But the odds are weighed heavily in the former’s favour.
Oliphant holds a 49 point lead on dropped scores heading into the final three races – 109 points are on offer across the meeting – with the Century Motorsport ace dropping 22 points to Breeze’s zero.
That means Oliphant can win the title in the opening race of the weekend simply by outscoring Breeze by one single point – with his eight race wins giving him the edge compared to Breeze’s six in the event of them finishing on equal points.
If Breeze were to enjoy a perfect weekend and take the maximum points on offer, Oliphant would need to score 39 points to take the title – the equivalent of a pair of fourth place finishes.
For Breeze to add a second title to his 2012 success, he will need to outscore Oliphant by an average of 17 points per race – for example if Breeze took three second place finishes, Oliphant would have to finish no higher than twelfth in any race.
In the AM class meanwhile, the advantage lies in Colin White’s court meanwhile in his battle with Osamu Kawashima. The Japanese racer needs to outscore White by an average of 26 points per race to seal the crown, with White taking the title if he finishes ahead of Kawashima in race one.
With no dropped scores in the Teams Championship, it’s a much easier scenario – HHC Motorsport need to outscore Century Motorsport by eighteen points across the weekend if they’re to take the title, if not Century will be victorious.
