Tom Wrigley feels there’s more to come from himself and the Rob Boston Racing team after they wrote their names into the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup history books with a hat-trick of victories at Donington Park.
Heading into the weekend with the championship lead after a clean sweep of the podium at Brands Hatch, Wrigley was confident of further success in Leicestershire – but admits that he didn’t expect to come away from the meeting with all three wins.
Wrigley carded his second Supercup pole position in qualifying and converted it into a pair of dominant lights to flag victories, before impressively working his way through from fifth on the grid to victory in the reverse grid encounter.
The former Kumho BMW champion becomes only the third driver in championship history to achieve the feat, following in the footsteps of Tom Sharp (Brands Hatch Indy 2011 & 2012, Donington Park 2011, Thruxton 2012) and Tom Ingram (Croft 2013).
“We really couldn’t have asked for anymore from this weekend,” Wrigley told TCF.
“To get three wins and add my name to the history books is fantastic. It was a target of ours to achieve it during the season, but we didn’t think we’d get it so early on, but we’re just on a dominant run at the moment.
“Rob [Boston] and the team have really got the car perfect at the moment and I’m doing well behind the wheel, so we couldn’t ask for anything more at the moment.”
The championship now heads into a long seven week break until the next meeting at Oulton Park on 04/05 June, and Wrigley is focused on ensuring he carries across his current form into the trip to Cheshire.
“There’s no testing to be done as we’re not allowed, so Rob will go back, strip the car down and get it all prepped ready to go,” he concluded.
“I’ll continue my work behind-the-scenes, and then I think we’ll come back together and be stronger than ever. I want both wins there as well.”
