Double podium for Harry King in Ginetta Supercup finale

Double podium for Harry King in Ginetta Supercup finale

02.10.2018: Rising star Harry King enjoyed a successful end to his rookie season in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with two more podium finishes in the final meeting of the year at Brands Hatch.

Rising star Harry King enjoyed a successful end to his rookie season in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup with two more podium finishes in the final meeting of the year at Brands Hatch.
 


The teenager from Holyport headed for the Kent circuit eager to maintain a rich run of form in recent meetings, having followed up a victory at Rockingham with two podiums last time out at Silverstone.
 


Harry qualified third on the grid at the wheel of his Elite Motorsport-run car with a best time just two tenths of a second off pole position, having lost time on his quickest lap whilst slowing for a yellow flag.
 


An even open race would see Harry run in third place throughout to add more silverware to his tally, whilst he would go one better in race two, taking second spot behind champion Charlie Ladell having made up a place off the line.
 


The reverse grid final race saw Harry start from fifth spot, but his hopes of ending the campaign with another podium were ended on the opening lap when he was tipped into a spin at Druids.
 


Returning to the circuit stone cold last, Harry was able to close onto the pack ahead when the safety car was deployed before launching an impressive recovery drive that saw him battle his way through the pack to fifth spot by the finish.
 


At the end of his maiden season in the series, Harry ends up third in championship standings with four wins amongst an impressive total of 13 podiums, whilst 86 laps led was the second highest number on the grid.
 


“We had the pace to take victory this weekend, but I think we can still be happy with two podium finishes,” he said. “Qualifying was unlucky because I had a yellow flag on my fastest lap and then came across an Am car on the next one, which didn’t help in the fight for pole.
 


“Race one was a pretty straightforward race as the top four were all matched for pace so P3 was a solid result and race two was all about the start, getting into second on the run to Paddock Hill Bend and then chasing Ladell all the way to the finish.
 


“Race three was unfortunate because the contact on lap one tipped me into a spin and dropped me out of contention for the podium. The safety car played into our hands and I was able to fight my way to P5.
 


“Of course it’s not the way I wanted to end the season when we had the pace to fight for the podium, but this time it was beyond our control. I’d like to thank Entire Race Engineering, St. James’ Club Antigua, Workspace Group and 1BR for coming down to Brands Hatch and showing their support.”
