Per­fect week­end for Chad­wick

Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge

Motor Sport News - - BTCC Report: Thruxton - By Alex Kalin­auckas

“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.
