Wrigley Doubles Up At Donington Park

1 Mins read

Tom Wrigley has made it two wins in two races at Donington Park with another dominant Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup victory.

The Rob Boston Racing ace repeated his lights-to-flag success from the opening race of the weekend, with only a mid-race safety car period halting his momentum.

That came following an unfortunate spin for Mark Davies at Redgate, but when the action resumed it was a similar story for Wrigley as he edged clear for a 1.6 second success.

Behind, there was an early change for second place as Will Burns got ahead of Jamie Orton – though Orton nearly got the position back on lap five as the duo ran side-by-side down the Craners.

Burns held him off though and a wild moment for Orton at McLeans dropped him back, but the safety car interlude allowed him to get back onto Burns’ rear bumper.

Orton’s best challenge came into the final chicane on lap fourteen, but Burns fended him off to take his fourth podium finish in the first five races.

As Orton completed the podium, Carl Boardley and Tom Hibbert fought over fourth in the early stages, with Boardley decisively taking the position around the outside at Redgate on lap seven.

Ben Green emerged from a close fought battle behind to take sixth from tenth on the grid, with Rob Gaffney, Callum Pointon and Rob Wheldon close behind – the latter two split by just eight thousandths of a second.

Davies had been part of that battle before his spin into retirement, whilst Reece Somerfield has climbed onto the back of the scrap early on before suffering a race-ending mechanical problem.

In the AM class, Fraser Robertson held the lead heading into the closing stages, but Colin White got ahead on the penultimate lap to take his fourth class victory in five races so far.

James Guess completed the podium ahead of race one class winner Grahame Tilley, with Chris Ingram and Mike Newbold completing the finishers.
