Thruxton Preview

April 29, 2016

 

The Protyre Ginetta GT5 Challenge will join the BTCC at the ultra high speed circuit of Thruxton for rounds 4 and 5 of the Championship. 

 

WIth packed grandstands and live coverage on ITV4 it would be fantastic if I could get a couple more podiums and continue my good start to the season. However this weekend is set to be a tough one as it will be my first time racing on the fast and flowing circuit and although I have driven the circuit when I did my ARDS test, more than 5 years ago, I have had no testing in the Ginetta G40 at the circuit.

 

To try and prepare for the challenge of this weekend, I went on an experience day where I got to drive a Porsche Cayman for 9 laps with an instructor to try and get a feel for the circuit and the lines I should be taking. At the end of the 9 laps I remembered how much I enjoyed the circuit and how fast it was. I was very glad to have got some laps under my belt and I am now really looking forward to getting out there in my race car.

You can watch the racing from Thruxton live on ITV4 from 10:15 am on Sunday the 8th of May. For more information about the race weekend you can visit the Thruxton website.
