James Kellett has equaled the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 SuperCup record for most wins in a single season with a brilliant double success at Thruxton this past weekend (27/28 August).
Kellett took the top honours around the fastest circuit in the UK to continue his title challenge, though the weekend was sadly overshadowed by a serious incident on Sunday that led to the hospitalisation of drivers Colin White and Mike Brown. The Millers Oils team wishes them a speedy recovery.
The debut of the Ginetta G56 GT4 at Thruxton led to top speeds of more than 160mph as the drivers battled it out around the Hampshire circuit. As Kellett increased his tally to 11 wins this year, Aston Millar and Tom Emson joined him on the overall podium in both races.
In the G56 Am class, Darren Leung stretched his winning run to five in a row with a double victory. In the G55 classes meaning, there was Pro success for Blake Angliss and Luke Reade, while Daniel Morris and James Townsend took a victory apiece in the Am ranks.
In the Ginetta Junior Championship meanwhile, Josh Rowledge moved one step closer to enjoying title success this season. Finishing second in the opener, he went on to record his sixth and seventh wins of the campaign to increase his championship lead to 66 points.
The leading rookie talent on the grid, Will Macintyre, kept himself in title contention with a race win of his own. It was a weekend to remember for Zac Meakin as he took a career-best second-place result, while Aqil Alibhai, Sonny Smith and Joe Warhurst also picked up overall podium finishes.
