The excitement of the Easter Weekend BTCC Donington meeting continued for Laser Tools Racing fans with the Ginetta GT4 Supercup Challenge. With his British GT Championship commitments, usual driver Jack Mitchell couldn’t make the meeting, so 2016 BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Champion Tom Roche was confirmed as guest driver in the Laser Tools Racing Ginetta G55.

Tom got to grips with the Ginetta in practice sessions on the Thursday and Friday and put in a very creditable P5 in the Saturday morning qualifying session. For Race 1 (Round 4 of the Supercup Challenge) later on the Saturday afternoon, Tom achieved a fantastic 2nd place podium and also posted the fastest lap of the race.

On Sunday morning Race 2 started at 10:40 and we were delighted to see Tom the race winner after leading the field for most of the race! Although he won Race 2, with that championship’s reverse-grid system, Tom started Race 3 in P5 on the grid. It was a closely fought race and Tom finished in 4th. So with two podiums in three races, both Tom and Laser Tools Racing were very happy with his performance over the weekend.
