Home hope Carl Breeze believes his red-hot form has got the Ginetta GT4 Supercup’s top two running scared.
The King’s Lynn race ace heads to Norfolk’s Snetterton track sitting in fourth position in the standings – some 39 points behind championship leader Charlie Robertson. However, having picked up two wins last time out at Croft ahead of the summer break, the United Autosports driver is certain the leaders are looking nervously over their shoulders.
Breeze said: “I suppose you can look at the break (five weeks) two ways. It would have been nice to have a week break and then go back into the action. We are on a roll at the moment. It would have been nice to probably go back out. But it probably gave our competitors a while to stew and be worried about our pace. In the last two rounds, Croft and also Oulton Park, we had the lap records and we were very unlucky not to get two wins at Oulton Park. There was a report that went out after Croft interviewing the top two drivers in the championship (Robertson and David Pittard), asking who they feared the most for the run-in, and they both came back and said myself.
“That was good to see that we’ve got a few people in the paddock worried. I’m confident now that we’ve got the car sorted in terms of pace and we’re looking very comfortable for the second-half of the season.”
Breeze, runner-up last year and in 2011, won the support to the British Touring Car Championship two years ago. The Norfolk speed demon enjoyed a fine second half of that campaign to accelerate up the table. And he’s hoping to do the same this time around. Yet, while he can’t wait to take to his nearest track this weekend – a circuit where he has enjoyed at least one victory at every event since 2007 – Breeze feels he certainly doesn’t have any home advantage.
The Lynn racer said: “In the past some people have said I’ve got home knowledge of the track but that went out of the window when they redesigned the circuit. Local knowledge doesn’t come into it.”
