TOCA package regular Breeze may not race
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.”
