GT4 Su­per­cup to re­turn to Thrux­ton and Knock­hill cir­cuits dur­ing 2019 sea­son

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Ginetta GT4 Su­per­cup will re­turn to Thrux­ton and Knock­hill next year af­ter not vis­it­ing those venues in re­cent sea­sons.

The se­ries will con­tinue to fea­ture on the sup­port bill at eight of the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship’s meet­ings in 2019, with the GT5 Chal­lenge again tak­ing its place at the other two.

This year the Su­per­cup skipped the Thrux­ton and Knock­hill rounds while next year the first of the two Thrux­ton meet­ings and Snet­ter­ton don’t fea­ture on the cal­en­dar. But as the se­ries will make the sec­ond trip to Thrux­ton in Au­gust it will be the first time the Hamp­shire venue has been in­cluded since 2015. Knock­hill last fea­tured in ’16.

“It’s a few dif­fer­ent tracks [for the driv­ers] – they haven’t been to Thrux­ton or Knock­hill for a few years,” ex­plained Ginetta mo­tor­sport man­ager Ash Gal­lagher. “There are three clashes between TOCA and Bri­tish GT so it’s been dif­fi­cult to sort [as GT5 runs with Bri­tish GT].”

Se­ries last raced at Knock­hill in 2016
