Wycombe driver has it all to do at Brands Hatch
TOM Ingram probably needs to win the last three races of the Supercup to have any chance of snatching an unprecedented hat-trick of Ginetta titles.
The Wycombe speedster slipped from second to third in the running order after a disappointing weekend at Silverstone, and now has 52 points to make up with just 109 left on the table.
He said: “This isn’t over yet and we’ll come out fighting at Brands. We will bounce back.
“It’s going to be tough whichever way you look at it, but we’ve just got to go there targeting three wins and then at the end of the day, we’ll see if that’s enough.”
If he can overhaul championship leader Tom Sharp, it would seal a supreme treble after his Ginetta Junior Championship in 2010 and his Ginetta Supercup triumph last season.
However, the odds are against him a troubled weekend at Silverstone, when two fourth-place finishes left him on the back foot.
He said: “Right from the outset, we didn’t have the pace we normally do.
“It was an odd one; we never seemed able to find that last little bit with the set-up, which meant we were lacking the final tenth of a second – a margin that can make all the difference.
“It’s not like other circuits where if you lose time in one part of the lap, you can make it up elsewhere – around Silverstone’s short, high-speed national layout, if you haven’t got the car fully underneath you and you’re slow in one section, you’ll be slow full-stop.”
Ingram’s last stand takes place at Brands Hatch on October 20 and 21.
