Boardley takes maiden win as Orton stars
Ginetta GT4 Supercup
Jamie Orton claimed two Ginetta GT4 Supercup wins at Silverstone before Carl Boardley claimed his first ever win in the series with victory in the finale.
Orton took the lead at the start of race one from polesitter Boardley, who dropped further down the order when he lost out in a threeway clash with Callum Pointon and Tom Wrigley at Maggotts.
Orton raced clear with Wrigley in pursuit and the pair finished in that order with the Triple M Motorsport driver winning by 0.3s. Pointon came home third, but was later upgraded to second when Wrigley was handed a 10-second penalty for the lap one incident.
In race two, Pointon jumped Orton off the line and held on to first place for nine laps before a sweeping move around the outside of Brooklands earned Orton the lead once again. Boardley took second as Pointon faded to fifth and Will Burns completed the podium.
In race three, Boadley took the win after stalking and eventually passing polesitter Mark Davies, who received a five-second penalty for track limits abuse and finished fourth. Wrigley came second – and maintains the championship lead heading into the season finale at Brands Hatch – with Burns again in third. Orton retired with a power steering pump failure after being hit from behind in the early stages.
