GT CUP CHAMPIONSHIP & SIGNATURE RVGT Cup Championship Round Up
WPI Motorsport enjoyed a clean sweep of victories in the GT Cup Championship season finale at Snetterton, but it was JMH Automotive who could finally celebrate clinching the overall title in their McLaren 570s.
John Whitehouse and Steve Ruston had to finish the job and did so with a pair of solid GTH finishes, beating GTC endurance winner James Webb to the overall title. Webb claimed the GTC crown, while Team HARD added GTA title success in their Ginetta.

“The car’s been awesome all year and we never really had any dilemmas with it. Kept consistent, which was why we were in it until the very end really. We picked up a couple of wins early doors, and then others caught us up towards the end, but it’s but awesome for all of us, for McLaren and JMH and everybody that’s helped us.”

“The atmosphere has been great, the team have been fantastic and we just have to thank everybody. Sunoco, McLaren, and the people of GT Cup constantly motivating us. It’s tough to get to the end of the season and still have to wrap it up, but we got there in the end and I’m chuffed to bits. It’s easy to spend the money, but it’s not easy to actually do it on track. At the start of the year we had a bit of an advantage I think, but then everybody recovered and the racing got a bit more competitive which is good to see.
