MOTOR SPORT: Carl Breeze raced to his 13th podium finish of the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup season at Silverstone at the weekend.
Beginning Sunday’s 24th round from sixth on the grid, the 2012 champion held the place through Copse and managed to move into the top four on lap one before mounting a challenge for third position.
Swarming all over the back of Rob Boston’s car, the Total Control Racing driver piled on the pressure and his attempts to pass gained more urgency as Matt Nicoll-Jones closed up behind.
Breeze finally made the breakthrough out of Copse on lap 18 with a superb pass.
During round 23 on Saturday, the King’s Lynn racer had a battle on his hands from 10th on the grid.
Reeling in the group ahead, Breeze was seventh by lap 14 and on the next lap moved into sixth.
He then got alongside Nicoll-Jones into lap 21 and up to fifth on the final lap.
However, after the race he was demoted back to sixth after officials adjudged him to have gained an ‘unfair advantage’.
TCR’s Lee Brookes said Breeze had raced well but added: “We’ve still got an ongoing problem with Carl’s car.
“There’s something wrong, which Ginetta haven’t been able to identify.
“We need to go away testing to try to find the problem but we haven’t been able to do that, it all costs money.”
