GT Cup Championship roars into Oulton Park

The fourth meeting of the 2022 GT Cup Championship roars into Oulton Park for one day of
action-packed into two thrilling full-length endurance races.

Another packed grid of cars make the trip to the International circuit in Cheshire across four
groups, filled with a variety of fantastic machinery designed to create equally superb racing.
A dramatic Snetterton visit changed the look of the overall championship as GTH group
leaders Valluga Racing moved to the top with the consistent pairing of Sam Maher-
Loughnan and James Wallis in their Porsche Cayman. They fight off the attention of
Mercedes and the Makehappenracing duo of Stephen Walton and Chris Hart, who have
been in combat all season along with the likes of Paddock Motorsport's McLaren 570s
chargers, and the similar Greystone GT effort of Mark Hopton and Euan Hankey. The ever-
exciting James Kellett returns with fellow winners Century Motorsport, piloting a Ginetta G55
with Alex Stevenson.

They sit ahead of the GT3 group leaders, which contains a fabulous field of performance
cars to grab the attention of fans. Heading that group are two McLaren 720s pairings, Simon
Orange and Michael O'Brien are four points clear of Morgan Tillbrook and Marcus Clutton after
wins for both at Snetterton and Brands Hatch. RAM Racing bring a single Mercedes GT3
with Snetterton winners Mike Price and Callum MacLeod behind the wheel, while Grahame
Tilley and Will Tregurtha continue their first season in Mercedes GT3 machinery looking for
their first win.

In GTO, all eyes will be on two cars looking to spoil the GT3 party. The iconic Porsche 935
of Richard Chamberlain is on the entry list looking to wow automotive fans as always, while
Raw Motorsport's Radical RXC will be in contention for more overall wins to boost the
championship hopes of drivers Steve Burgess and Ben Dimmack.

GTC has enjoyed a fierce scrap between Lucky Khera's Ferrari 488 Challenge and the
Topcats Racing with Lamborghini Huracan of Warren Gilbert and Jensen Lunn.
Just 16 points split them, with the latter on a charge in recent rounds.

Points are also up for grabs in the Sporting Challenge - only open to purely sporting driver
pairings. That is topped by Makehappenracing's Hart and Walton, but no Sprint Challenge
points will be on offer with two 40-minute Endurance contests taking place at Oulton Park.
It will be entertaining on the tight and technical circuit, with the skies already ready to throw
some unpredictability into the mix!
