TOCA pack­age reg­u­lar Breeze may not race

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mer Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup cham­pion Carl Breeze will not be rac­ing this year af­ter los­ing his main spon­sor.

The 36-year-old has com­peted on the TOCA pack­age for the last 17 years, win­ning the For­mula Re­nault UK ti­tle in 2001 and amass­ing over 150 podi­ums. He also had stints in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship and the SEAT Cupra Cham­pi­onship be­fore spend­ing the last seven years in the Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup.

“I’ve just got no money com­ing in,” said Breeze, who fin­ished run­ner-up last sea­son with HHC Mo­tor­sport. “I won’t be rac­ing un­less some­thing turns up as a free­bie.

“It’s a shame be­cause I re­ally love rac­ing and it will be dif­fi­cult watch­ing the first round not tak­ing part. I’ve been part of the TOCA pack­age for so long and been suc­cess­ful.”

Breeze added he was con­sid­er­ing a switch to Bri­tish GT.

“I was look­ing at Bri­tish GT or maybe Ginet­tas again as well but when your main spon­sor’s gone it’s a mas­sive dent in the cof­fers,” he said. “Hope­fully if I can’t get out this sea­son then I’ll see if I can in for 2017.

“It’s get­ting harder to find drives as you’ve got sin­gle­seater driv­ers who have given up on the F1 dream bring­ing money with them.”
