Wrigley: “I’m Not Letting This Championship Lead Go Now”

Early Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup championship leader Tom Wrigley heads to Donington Park next weekend determined to extend his advantage at the top of the standings following a “fantastic start to the season” at Brands Hatch.

Wrigley kicked off his second season in the series with a clean sweep of the podium positions in Kent, with second place in the opening race followed by victory in race two and third position in the weekend closer.

The race win was his first in a non-reverse grid race, following back-to-back race three successes last season, and it came following a fantastic launch off the line that secured him the advantage over the slow-starting poleman Jamie Orton.

There could have been more for the Rob Boston Racing man in the third race though, with him just having definitively passed Reece Somerfield for second place when the red flags were brought out, with the countback of the lap putting him back in third.

Despite that slight frustration though, Wrigley expressed his delight at the weekend’s results when speaking to The Checkered Flag: “I couldn’t really be happier with my weekend, it’s been a fantastic start to the season.

“It’s particularly nice to get a first non-reverse grid victory under my belt in the championship, it’s another milestone for us and shows everyone that we have the pace to do it.

“Over the weekend as a whole, we were able to show strong pace in every session. In particular the race three pace was really encouraging having saved our tyres well, which is a positive thing for us heading forward this season to circuits with high degradation.

“I’m not looking to let this championship lead go now. I want to go to Donington Park and extend my advantage.”
