Ladell on top form
Bury St Edmunds racer Charlie Ladell stretched his lead in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup by winning both races in last weekend’s round at Oulton Park.
After qualifying on pole with a quickest lap of one minute and 25.260 seconds on Saturday, the 21-year-old made the perfect start to the weekend’s first race, opening up a handy advantage.
Ladell went on to claim his fourth victory of the year, and then in the second race on Sunday, he was able to keep up his impressive record of finishing on the podium in every race so far this season.
With a three tenths of a second lead at the end of the first lap, Ladell continued to edge away from the field and ultimately enjoyed a straightforward run to his fifth race win of the campaign.
The Rob Boston Racing driver has a 25-point lead on nearest rival Carl Boardley.
