    Donington Park Preview

    Donington Park Preview

    Here we are at the final round of the season already. I feel like we say this every year, but this one has well and truly flown by. 

    I would like to start with a massive thank you to RE Beverages/ IPC Financial/ Alex Reade Motorsport/ UK Recovery/ Rosland Gold/ LM Automotive/ Infinity Wax and of course Wolf Motorsport. All your help this year has been mega and I am already looking forward to the future…

    Oh yeah - and we still have one race left to run. What seems like an age after a blistering Brands Hatch, we arrive at the final race of the season at which is looking to be a rainy Donington Park. 

    Our second visit to Donny after winning two out of three earlier in the year. I say there is no pressure this time round after being crowned champion at the previous race but why else turn up if not to win?! It will be great to go out on a high after a fantastic year with the team. 

    I look forward to seeing some of you at the track for what might be our last race in a Ginetta… Who knows? Lots to look forward to already for 2024.

    All the races will be live streamed this weekend via the link below or keep up to date with my social media pages.

    Brands Hatch GP Review 2023 Ginetta GT Pro Champion!

    Brands Hatch GP Review 2023 Ginetta GT Pro Champion!

    What a scorcher of a weekend, completely made by so many friends and family being in and around the action.

    Also it was bloody hot! I wouldn’t like to guess the temperature of the cockpit but it was enough for a quick trip to Argos to pick up a £10 paddling pool (the main win from the weekend).

    The whole Wolf Motorsport team were on it from Friday morning, never dropping the ball. The car was set up and rapid in every session. We narrowly missed out on pole by about half a tenth of a second. 

    Race one, I managed to snatch lead with a nice move around the outside of paddock hill bend (if I do say so myself). 
    I told the team I would not take any risks and bring the car home in one piece, as we only needed 3 decent finishes to secure the championship. And I meant it… until the visor went down and I had a sniff of a home win. 
    We held on to take the first win of the weekend. 

    Race two, not making as good a getaway as the previous race, I lost out and slotted into P2. I tried my hardest to get through but ultimately didn’t succeed. I was still very happy to take the second place and happy with the performance (other than the ropey start). I was super fired up to take the final win with so many friends and family supporting trackside.

    All that hype about winning race three was not evident in my poor race start, losing out and finding myself in 3rd place - with a lot of work to do. The fella ahead made a move on the leader a few laps later, opening the door enough for a RE shaped Ginetta to squeeze through, which moved us into 2nd, and with enough time to challenge for the win it was game on. 

    The car was mega and a real pleasure to drive, I was properly motivated by the trackside support and determined to have a pop at the win. A few exciting side-by-side laps ensued, and I finally got the better of the leader and cleared off to take our 14th win of the year, sealing the championship at the earliest opportunity.

     honestly can’t thank everyone enough who came to watch and offered support, not only this weekend, but the whole season. It made it even more special.

    The plans are starting to form for 2024 and I’m getting excited! But there is still one round to go next month at Donington, let’s finish off the year in style.

    Cadwell Park

    Cadwell Park

    Signing off from Cadwell Park.
    It definitely lived up to the hype and the classic British summertime weather played its part.
    All of the practise sessions were dry and then typically it chucked it down for qualifying Saturday morning. The standing water was ridiculous and unfortunately a tiny lapse in concentration and I was in the wall. Luckily, it wasn’t too bad, the boys patched me up and I was back out. We were on a great lap and then the dreaded red flags came out, resulting in us qualifying P4. I knew this was going to be tricky a weekend from there.

    Race one later that afternoon was still wet, and the officials decided to start the race behind the safety car. Slotting into 4th after the start, we had a great battle for p3, getting through just as my windscreen decided to completely fog up and I tip toed to the checkered flag. I was still over the moon to have moved forward on a track that is super tricky to overtake on.

    Race two, I made a great start taking the lead into the first corner, then set out building a gap to the cars behind. It was super tricky to push in the wet conditions without making any mistakes, but we held on to take our first win of the weekend!

    Race three, again, we made a great start to take the lead and kept it for a few laps, having a great battle with the car behind. Unfortunate contact resulted in a half spin from myself. We dropped too far back to challenge for the win but had built up a gap to the cars behind to hold on to p2. We limped home to complete a great weekend.

    On a weekend where cars were dropping like flies, you had to be on it every corner of every lap. I am super chuffed with the whole team. Without them and the hard work they all put in week in, week out, I would be nowhere.

    We now move to the penultimate round of the championship at Brands Hatch in September. It’s going to be a big one!

    Hopefully see some of you there.

    Snetterton Treble

    Snetterton Treble

    We did the bloody treble!

    After bad luck in previous years at Snetterton - not just for me but also for my brother in his racing career - I was determined to swing things in our favour this time around.

    This almost certainly was NOT the way it started. Within 15mins of leaving Wolf Motorsport HQ on Thursday afternoon, a wheel fell off one of the trailers on the M25, resulting in the motorway being shut in the anticlockwise direction. Soz if you were caught up in that...

    We then had to drop off one trailer at Snetterton, set up the awning and head back to Brands Hatch to pick up the car. The boys and girls drove though the night, finally getting back to Snetterton as the sun had risen on Friday morning. Oh yeah - and we were the first session out. So, a brief sleep and 30 coffees later, we were ready to rock and roll.

    Then, the driveshaft popped out within five laps in FP1. You can see where I am going with the Snetterton run of bad luck, can’t you?!

    ANYWAY, we got to work, fine-tuning the setup and fixing any problems. A very successful FP2 put us 2nd and we could see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    We never looked back, grabbing a double pole position by the slimmest of margins. One tenth covered the top 3.
    In race one, I managed to hold off an attack to lead into turn one, then had to fight through the tricky conditions as it started to rain mid race. It is never fun being the first one to arrive at a fast corner, with rain covering the windscreen, hoping you still have enough heat in the tyre to see you through. We got it done though and grabbed win no1 of the weekend!

    Race two was a tad simpler, pulling a small gap on the cars behind I could try and stoke it home whilst trying to save a bit of tyre life. Win no2!

    Race three was not as plain sailing, my start was not the best and I lost out into turn one. Settling down in second place for a lap, I soon mounted a challenge on the leader.

    About 4 laps in, I could see him struggling with his tyres and when he got sideways out of the last corner, I made a play for the inside line into turn one and was shown the door, similarly covered off as we headed into the hairpin at turn two. Luckily, this left me the grippier side of the track to brake on, and I braked as late as I possibly could, carryinh enough momentum to swing right around the outside and taking the lead into turn three. We managed to maintain the lead to the end of the race! Win no3.

    A fantastic result, and one the whole team can be immensely proud of. From where we started at the beginning of the weekend, to grabbing a double pole and all three wins, it really is no mean feat.

    Now we head to what they call the mini Nürburgring: Cadwell Park. I have no idea what it is going to be like taking a Ginetta round there, many spare pairs of underwear will be brought.

    You can catch up on all last weekend's racing below.

    Silverstone Review

    That was an intense two weeks, with Donington closely followed by Silverstone a few days later. A mad 10 races in just over one week. The Wolf Motorsport team have been relentless, keeping the car well prepped and ready to go, even throwing in a gearbox change late on Wednesday night.

    Ginetta put on a great festival weekend, it was wicked to see the old Senna Toleman F1 car along with the Le Mans Ginettas out on track. We hit the track on Friday for 3 races and one qualifying session. 

    There were a few guest drivers in the mix this weekend to spice things up. Unfortunately, this meant they weren’t restricted to championship tyres. We were never really going to have the ultimate pace over this weekend, so the game plan was to bag as many points as possible.

    I won’t get into every race, as it would be like writing a novel and I haven’t got the skill to keep you gripped for 900 pages of Silverstone… 

    As I said, the credit for this weekend goes fully to Wolf Motorsport for keeping the car quick all weekend. We were always there in the mix for podiums. When others dropped away, we were there to pick up the points.

    My highlight of the weekend was wheel-to-wheel racing with the Ginetta legend Colin White. We traded places and a small amount of paint work over the weekend. Nothing left on the track and smiles all round, it was great to be involved in. 

    We have now reached the half way point of the Ginetta GT Pro season, it’s been a great first half of the year. Let’s keep the competitive pressure on into the next race at Snetterton next weekend. 

    Big thank you to all our partners who have helped us get to this point, here's to the next half of the season.
