- United Autosports continues to lead Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup
- Breeze & Davenport remain well placed in Ginetta series
United Autosports continues to lead the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup Teams' championship while Carl Breeze and Luke Davenport remain second and sixth respectively in the Driver’s standings.
Breeze recorded a brace of fourths at Silverstone with Davenport claiming two top-10s. In the opening race, Breeze ran third until dropping to fourth behind title rival Charlie Robertson with six laps remaining after a race-long duel for the final podium position while Davenport incurred a 5secs time penalty for exceeding track limits en route to ninth.
In the second race Breeze made his customary good start and was up to third place briefly before Robertson took the place back again before a Safety Car period. Breeze, despite intense pressure over the last five laps, held on for fourth place at the chequered flag after 27-laps while Davenport was classified eighth despite a 5secs penalty.

“Qualifying fifth wasn’t too bad taking into account series leader Charlie Robertson was just one place ahead. We made a few tweaks overnight. It proved to be a difficult weekend as we didn’t have the pace to challenge for podiums. The positive was that we only lost eight points to Charlie [Robertson] which means we still go into the last round with an outside chance of the title. I’m sure we will bounce back at Brands Hatch and take the championship down to the wire.”

“It was a weekend that looked to be very promising with the potential we showed on Friday in testing. My coach and team were happy with the data, however, Sunday’s races just didn’t go to plan. I felt the car was good and that I was driving well but we just weren’t quick enough. I will now look ahead to Brands and aim to end the year on a high for my team and sponsors.”
Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“We had an unfortunate weekend with the Ginettas. The cars didn’t have the pace to be challenging for wins but at least we extended our lead in the team championship and Carl didn’t lose too many points to Charlie Robertson. We will head into the Brands Hatch weekend aiming for podiums and wins and hopefully some championship celebrations.”
