Caine: “It’s Great To Finish The Year On A High”

Michael Caine completed his maiden Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup season in style with his best weekend of the year at Brands Hatch GP.

After missing the last two race meetings through injury, Caine got back behind the wheel of his JHR Developments G55 in Kent and secured a podium finish hat-trick.

Caine converted third in qualifying to the same position in the opening two races, before turning fourth on the reverse grid race three

“To end the season with three podiums is fantastic,” Caine told TCF. “We’ve worked really hard with the car this weekend, JHR Developments have done everything they can to get the car up there, and it came together in that race, so it’s great to finish the year on a high.”

The podium treble brings to a close a mixed season for the former British GT champion, which also featured a maiden win at Thruxton and further podiums at Donington Park, Croft and Snetterton.

“It’s been a sh*tfight this season in fairness,” he reflected. “We’ve struggled with getting to know the car and everything like that, and it was just feeling like we were getting somewhere with it when I had to miss a couple of meetings. That’s what happens though.”

Attentions naturally now turn to 2016 and Caine, who ended up snatching fourth in the final Supercup championship standings during the Brands finale, admits he’s unsure where he’ll be racing next year.

“I don’t know where I’m going to be at the moment, but I don’t want to give up, I don’t want to stop racing and we’ll see what comes around,” Caine concluded.

“I’d love to stay with Amigos though, they’re great people, its great fun and everyone involved loves motorsport.”
