Staying Sharp – Tom Tops Ginetta

Tom Sharp Rockingham

A trio of brave driving performances at rain-soaked Rockingham has ensured driver Tom Sharp has retained his lead at the top of the 2012 Ginetta GT SuperCup Standings.

The Ginetta GT SuperCup descended on Rockingham Motor Speedway, Corby, Northants at the weekend for Round Eight (Races 20, 21 and 22) of the current campaign.

In Race 20, Sharp earned a perfectly respectable fifth-placed finish before conditions got the better of his car and he was unable to complete Race 21. In Race 22, despite starting from 14th on the grid, Sharp battled his way through the field to record an incredible sixth place. Sharp tore through the field before forcing his way past the talented trio of Colin White, Andrew Richardson and Fergus Walkinshaw.

Sharpe takes a 15 point lead into the final two rounds. Round Nine (Races 22, 23 and 24) take place on October 6th at Silverstone and Round Ten (Races 25, 26 and 27) take place at Brand Hatch on 20th October.
