It’s a treble whammy for Ian Duggan as Acclaim Contracts celebrate Team Dugganite taking the Ginetta Championships title!

Proud sponsors of Team Dugganite, Acclaim Contracts having been watching Ian Duggan with baited breathe over the last few months as he has expertly driven his way around Oulton Park, Knockhill and finally Silverstone Racing Circuit where he was crowned champion of the Ginetta GT5 Challenge’s Am division with an outstanding Sunday victory at the Home of British Motor Racing.

Oulton Park
Two days of racing at Oulton Park in mid-August, culminated in Ian, driving at a ruthless pace, taking his third win of the year by nearly 18 seconds on the Saturday. A late-race charge in Sunday’s wet race – including the fastest lap – brought him to within 0.143 seconds of another success, but was more than enough to ensure a 34-point series lead and more silverware for the team from Maldon in Essex.

Knockhill Race Track
Just a week later Team Dugganite was at Knockhill Circuit in Fife where Ian pulled off a superbly-judged double win in the battle for the Ginetta GT5 Challenge Am title. 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.

Silverstone Racing Circuit
The 28th and 29th September saw 2 days of racing, finishing live on ITV2 and watched by over 1 million viewers, at the Silverstone Race Track, the longest and most demanding circuit in the UK. It was the weekend that witnessed Fox Motorsport’s Ian Duggan become champion of the Ginetta GT5 Challenge’s Am division with an outstanding Sunday victory at the Home of British Motor Racing.

Acclaim Contracts, roofing specialists are delighted for Team Dugganite and for Ian who said “ I just set a consistent pace and watched events fall in my favour as everyone around me spun off, so I was able to win. To do it on live TV too, with all my friends and family watching was great. I think it’s going to take some time before it really sinks in.”
