Wrigley misses out on quadruple victory
Ginetta GT4 Supercup
A collision with Carl Boardley and Callum Pointon in the finale prevented Tom Wrigley claiming an unprecedented four wins at Knockhill.
The runaway points leader was aided by the absence of key rival Jamie Orton, whose wife was expecting a child.
Wrigley had to work his way through the field to win the opener – the third race from Snetterton that was postponed after the BTCC shunt delays.
His path to victory was aided by Will Burns crashing into leader Tom Hibbert at Scotsman. This promoted Wrigley to third and he soon dispatched Reece Somerfield and Boardley to triumph.
Race two was more straightforward for Wrigley as he was able to pull out a small gap from Burns to win, while Mark Davies snatched third with a better run out of the final hairpin than Ben Green.
The third race was largely uneventful until a crash between Fraser Robertson and Mike Newbould brought out the red flags with Wrigley, Burns and Green the top three.
Burns was finally able to end Wrigley’s stranglehold of the meeting in the reverse grid finale, with Hibbert’s strong weekend being rewarded with a second place. Wrigley ended up seventh after his contact – his first race off the podium this season – but maintains a 93-point lead over Burns in the title race.
