Busy weekend for White in two Ginettas
Reigning Ginetta GT4 Supercup Am champion Colin White scored a class victory from last on the grid in the first race at Brands Hatch despite a late arrival as he had spent the morning racing in the Dunlop Prototype Series event at Silverstone.
White, who did not take part in qualifying for the Supercup as a result, explained that his drive in a Ginetta G57 at the Northamptonshire track was part of an effort to help the new series attract more participants.
He said: “Trying to do the two was very difficult, to go from one to the other as they are such different types of cars, but it was good fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
“[Silverstone] was all about trying the cars out and trying to entice more people in to do it so they can build a good class up and do a whole series.”
White, who scored a further two class wins in the remaining Supercup races at Brands Hatch, was able to race at the Kent circuit after Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson gave him a lift in his helicopter.
White said: “Lawrence gave me a ride down in his helicopter so that was really nice of him. We did a Top Gear thing with a friend of mine [who] drove down in Nissan GTR and we went in the helicopter. We actually got to Brands, sat around for an hour, had a race and he still hadn’t arrived.”
