Or­ton takes a Su­per­cup dou­ble

Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup

Motor Sport News - - Rounds - By Tom Er­ring­ton

Jamie Or­ton took a brace of vic­to­ries from pole to flag in the Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup, both times hold­ing off chal­lenges from ti­tle leader Tom Wrigley and Or­ton’s near­est ri­val Will Burns.

Or­ton said pole was key to suc­cess at Snetterton, and duly re­sponded by grab­bing the top slot in qual­i­fy­ing. It gave him the plat­form he needed for his brace and the opener was straight­for­ward.

Or­ton made an ex­cel­lent start and held off the early chal­lenge from Burns to win.

Burns then bat­tled Wrigley for sec­ond, with Burns just stay­ing ahead.

Burns again went head-to­head with Wrigley in the fi­nale. Or­ton can­tered into the dis­tance as he had in the first, but Burns wasn’t able to de­feat Wrigley again. Wrigley made a stun­ning dive down the in­side at Riches, with Carl Board­ley fol­low­ing through to com­plete the top three.

The third race was shelved af­ter time ran out when the BTCC fi­nale was red flagged.
