Orton takes a Supercup double
Ginetta GT4 Supercup
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.
