Bucks racer Tom Ingram finally succeeded in cracking his Snetterton curse as he sped to his sixth victory of a superb campaign in the fiercely-contested Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup.

Snetterton was the only circuit on the Ginetta GT Supercup calendar at which Ingram had never won, with Lady Luck stubbornly refusing to smile on the young Aylesbury Talent Passport holder previously.

Ingram picked up from where he had left off in qualifying by annexing his third straight pole position behind the wheel of his JHR Developments-prepared Ginetta G55. A flawless lights-to-flag victory followed and overall victory over the three-race weekend.

He said: “We need to keep scoring solid points in every race – if we can do that, come season’s end, the sums will take care of themselves.”
