Ginetta GT4 Supercup

Wrigley Completes Stunning Knockhill Hat-Trick

1 Mins read

Tom Wrigley has secured his second Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup hat-trick of the season with another dominant performance at Knockhill.

It proved to be a carbon copy of the second race of the weekend for Wrigley, as he guided his Rob Boston Racing Ginetta G55 to a lights-to-flag success.

Edging an immediate gap to Will Burns, Wrigley set a new Supercup lap record for the Scottish circuit on his way to a 4.2 second victory, his ninth of the campaign.

Burns meanwhile was a clear second in his Douglas Motorsport machine, earning him a ninth podium finish of the campaign to further cement his second place in the standings.

As in race two, the main action of the race came in the battle for third position, and after missing out at the final corner last time out, it was Ben Green who got the spot this time out.

The crucial move came on the opening lap as Green dived down the inside of Mark Davies at Scotsman, with Tom Hibbert following him through to demote Davies to fifth.

That kicked off a race long battle between the trio, with Davies hitting back almost immediately as he slid down the inside of Hibbert into the final hairpin.

After running nose-to-tail for a large portion of the race, Hibbert got the position back on lap twelve and held it to an early chequered flag – which came when a stranded Mike Newbold led to a red flag.

For Green, third position marked his second podium finish of the season so far, while fifth proved to be a blessing in disguise for Davies as he was put onto the reverse grid pole for the final race.

A superb drive from Carl Boardley saw him climb from thirteenth on the grid to sixth, a perfect response following his race two retirement, with Callum Pointon seventh.

In the AM class, Colin White was on course for another victory before contact with Boardley led to a premature end to his race, with Chris Ingram inheriting a first win of the campaign.

Grahame Tilley and David Brooks completed the AM podium, with Fraser Robertson and Newbold failing to make the finish after their late contact which caused the red flag.
