The third Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup race at Snetterton was cancelled at late notice this evening following an extensive time delay in the preceding Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race.
A dramatic multi-car incident that led to a camera tower being knocked over caused long delays as the circuit team and recovery crews worked to ensure everyone involved received the required medical attention, and the stricken cars were safely removed from the scene before the race was restarted.
With the Supercup teams and drivers already in the assembly area ahead of their scheduled race start, the decision was made to cancel the race as the BTCC encounter headed closer to the circuit’s evening curfew.
Ginetta have confirmed that “officials will look to add the race into the timetable at another venue later in the season”, with the condensed Supercup calendar only featuring one more double-header meeting this year, at Silverstone in September.
Tom Hibbert was set to start the reverse-grid final race of the weekend from pole position. Will Burns would have lined up alongside him ahead of Carl Boardley and championship leader Tom Wrigley, with double winner for the weekend Jamie Orton in fifth.
