Preview Oulton Park – Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup

Callum Pointon heads to his home circuit of Oulton Park leading the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup standings by an impressive 48 points. Four podiums – including one win – across the six races run so far, puts the HHC Motorsport racer firmly in the driving seat ahead of the third meeting of the season.

Behind Pointon, the rest of the top five is split by just a single point. In second position thanks to a pair of wins is George Gamble (JHR Developments), he’s tied on points with Liverpool lad Declan Jones (Century Motorsport) in third place.

In fourth and just one point behind his teammate, Ben Green (Century Motorsport) arrives on 109 points. He’s tied on points with Charlie Ladell (Rob Boston Racing) who has appeared on the podium once per meeting during his maiden season in the championship. 

You shouldn’t miss Carl Boardley in his bright yellow Carl Boardley Motorsport-prepared machine. He’s finished inside the top five in four of the six races run thus far, including a pair of podiums. Although bad luck leaves him uncharacteristically low in the standings, he’ll be looking to recoup a good points haul this weekend.

Seb Perez (JHR Developments) returns to the G55 after making a one-off appearance in the GT5 Challenge at Thruxton last time out. Expect to see Perez’s Amigos machine fighting hard with Privateer Tom Hibbert, who’s hoping to bag plenty more points in Cheshire.

Make sure you keep an eye on Jack Mitchell in the Laser Tools Racing car. He was forced to miss Donington Park due to racing commitments elsewhere but having showed impressive pace in the opening rounds of the season at Brands Hatch, taking a win in race two, he’s certainly going to be making up for the missed opportunities here.

Having switched to TCR for the season, former race winner Reece Somerfield is looking to pick up his first podium of the year, whilst the grid is completed by Adam Higgins of Hurricane Motorsport.

There’s no surprise to see twice champion Colin White (CWS 4x4 Spares) at the top of the AM class standings once again. Although he’s won four of the opening six races, he’s been kept honest by a strong field this season, and is hoping his recently healed broken wrist won’t hamper his winning ways this weekend.

Just behind Colin in the points are the Xentek Motorsport machines of Jac Constable and Alexis Taylor. Constable is the only other driver to have taken wins, with two to his name already this season. The pair are joined at the team by local entrant, Jack Minshaw, who just lives just down the road in Hale.

Rounding out the top five in the class standings are David Brooks (Privateer) and Team HARD’s Dan Kirby. The latter is once again joined at the team by Andy Wilmot, who made his debut in the series at Donington Park. TCR’s Ian Robinson complete the roster of returning drivers whilst completing the grid is new face Jason Baker, who joins Rob Boston Racing after making the step up from the Lotus Cup.
