Perfect weekend for Chadwick
Ginetta GT5 Challenge
“Perfect, you couldn’t ask for more,” was Ollie Chadwick’s assessment of last weekend as he left Thruxton with two Ginetta GT5 Challenge wins and a healthy points lead.
Such was Chadwick’s dominance that he raced comfortably clear from pole in both races, but there were still entertaining scraps in his wake in each.
In race one, Matt Chapman “bogged down” off the line from second on the grid and fell to fourth, which forced the TCR driver to battle back past Jonny and Ryan Hadfield with brave moves around the outside at Club.
As Chapman fruitlessly chased Chadwick, the Hadfield brothers squabbled over the final podium spot, which was finally settled when Ryan Hadfield spun off at the final chicane.
In race two, Chapman again finished behind Chadwick – who jokingly moaned there was no third race for him to try and dominate – with the pair well clear of Nick Zapolski, who had tussled with Jonny Hadfield and Ian Robinson.
