Wisbech racing star Jake Giddings raced to a top 10 British GT4 Championship result on only his second appearance of the 2017 season at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium last weekend.

Giddings was called-up to join first year GT racer Chapman to race the No.63 Ginetta G55 GT4 during the sole overseas event of the British GT campaign.

Lapping strongly in testing, the team-mates went on to finish 10th overall in GT4 and seventh in the Silver class, despite having been bundled down to 18th place at the start of the race following contact.

Frustratingly, they didn’t even get to take the start of round eight later in the day when a problem with the stubs on one of the Ginetta’s wheels left cause for concern over the possibility of a potential accident – a wheel having already become detached after the chequered flag in race one.

The championship resumes at Brands Hatch next month.
