Reade is Ginetta GT Pro Champion

Luke Reade couldn’t ask for a better weekend to become Ginetta GT Pro Champion last weekend.

Brands Hatch his home circuit played host to the latest round of the season, and on a scorching weekend Reade had his friends and family in attendance to watch him take the title.

The whole Wolf Motorsport team were on it from Friday morning, never dropping the ball. The car was set up and rapid in every session. We narrowly missed out on pole by about half a tenth of a second. 

Race one, Reade managed to snatch lead with a nice move around the outside of paddock hill bend (even if he did say so himself). 

He said: “I told the team I would not take any risks and bring the car home in one piece, as we only needed three decent finishes to secure the championship. And I meant it… until the visor went down and I had a sniff of a home win. We held on to take the first win of the weekend.”

In race two, he failed to make as good a getaway as the previous race, and lost out and slotted into P2.

He added: “I tried my hardest to get through but ultimately didn’t succeed. I was still very happy to take the second place and happy with the performance (other than the ropey start). I was super fired up to take the final win with so many friends and family supporting trackside.”

All that hype about winning race three was not evident with his poor race start, losing out and finding himself in third place – with a lot of work to do.

“The fella ahead made a move on the leader a few laps later, opening the door enough for a RE shaped Ginetta to squeeze through, which moved us into second, and with enough time to challenge for the win it was game on. 

“The car was mega and a real pleasure to drive, I was properly motivated by the trackside support and determined to have a pop at the win. A few exciting side-by-side laps ensued, and I finally got the better of the leader and cleared off to take our 14th win of the year, sealing the championship at the earliest opportunity.

“I honestly can’t thank everyone enough who came to watch and offered support, not only this weekend, but the whole season. It made it even more special.

“The plans are starting to form for 2024 and I’m getting excited! But there is still one round to go next month at Donington, let’s finish off the year in style.”
