A double WIN for Duggan at Knockhill
A thrilling finish and double WIN for Duggan at Knockhill.
On the weekend of 29th and 30th August 2020, the Dugganite Racing team pulled off a superbly-judged double win for Fox Motorsport’s Ian Duggan, in the battle for the Ginetta GT5 Challenge Am title at Knockhill Racing Circuit in Fife.
His first time racing at the fast and twisting 1.6-mile Scottish track, Ian spent practice and qualifying sessions easing himself into proceedings and qualified third in the Am class for the team from Maldon, Essex.
As usual, the Hockley racer stepped up in racing conditions, staying alert while several rivals threw away results with on-track incidents. This saw Duggan come through to win Saturday’s race.
A strong pass for the lead on Sunday, plus the race’s fastest lap, gave spectators a thrilling finish as he took the chequered flag. This brought Ian his fifth win for Dugganite’s 2020 campaign and a commanding 80-point lead in the championship at its halfway point.
‘I’ll be coming back in good shape’
Ian Duggan said, “This was the first time I had raced at Knockhill, and the two practice sessions on Friday were my first dry laps at the circuit, so I’m pleased, but also a little surprised to come away with two wins. I don’t feel I really got to grips with the track, especially in qualifying, however, once it was time to race I’d had a chance to learn my way around a bit more. That enabled me to push harder and be fast at the right time, pushing me through to the front. Fortunately for me, some of my Am rivals made some mistakes and I managed to keep things clean. I will be glad of a break now ahead of Donington, It will give me some time to recharge my batteries and I’ll be coming back in good shape.”
