Four TOCA support championships to be decided at Brands Hatch

27 Sep 17

The TOCA support package will bring the curtain down on another spectacular season this weekend (30 September/ 1 October) at Brands Hatch, with four championships set to crown champions.

Taking to the iconic Grand Prix layout of the Kent venue, a bumper crowd is expected to witness what is shaping up to be yet another edge-of-the-seat finale.

In the Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship, Tom Gamble finds himself in prime position to take the title. Making history at Silverstone after claiming a hat-trick of victories, the Elite Motorsport driver holds a 42 point advantage over his nearest challenger Sebastian Priaulx.

Daniel Harper also finds himself in contention for the title however he sits 55 points behind Gamble. All three have asserted their dominance at times this season, winning races on multiple occasions, and they’re now set to lock horns one more time this year.

Despite the points gap, expect too see a closely fought battle for the championship between the trio across the weekend’s three races.

The battle for the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup is still up for grabs too, although it is very much Callum Pointon’s to lose. Enjoying a consistent season which has seen him finish every race and notch 14 podiums from 20 races, Pointon is sitting pretty with an 82 point lead.

Ben Green and George Gamble are the nearest challengers to the HHC Motorsport driver but with a maximum of 109 points available, both will need to be at the top of their game to stop him prevailing.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB is delicately poised with Charlie Eastwood and Dino Zamparelli tied on points with two races to go. Inseparable at the front for a majority of the season, the duo are set to go head-to-head for the coveted championship.

Double champion Daniel Cammish holds a mathematical chance of making it three in-a-row however he will need to take maximum points and hope Eastwood and Zamparelli non-score to do so - a tall but not impossible task.

Over in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA - powered by Ford EcoBoost, Jamie Caroline looks set to put an exclamation mark on the 2017 campaign.

Breaking records and asserting his dominance from the beginning, the Carlin driver has been the man to beat in the single seater series. Arriving at Brands Hatch with a 67.5 point lead, Caroline will only need a sixth place finish in the opening encounter to become wrap up the championship.

Oscar Piastri and Logan Sargeant have done as much as they could in recent rounds to keep the title alive and both will need to continue that form if they are to pull off a monumental comeback.

There is plenty to look forward to in the Renault UK Clio Cup as well, despite Mike Bushell having already claimed his second title at Silverstone last time out.

The Entrants Trophy, Masters Cup and Graduates Cup are all still to be decided with the likes of Paul Rivett, Lee Pattison, James Dorlin, Jack McCarthy and Nathan Harrison keen to assert themselves at the sharp end of the grid.
