Latest News » Club 100 Superfinals kick off with the Altima Academy
We decided to surprise this year’s Club 100 competitors with a trip to Whilton Mill for the first ever Altima Academy backed Club 100 Superfinal championship event. With Team Manager Greg McIlwraith and Driver Danny Harrison taking the #18 car to have on show by the podium for the whole event, the Club100 drivers got to try it out for size and find out more about the incredible prize that is up for grabs to the winner of the Superfinal Championship and 2 selected drivers from across all Club100 Championships.
We managed to speak to a lot of drivers at the event, and spotted a number of drivers who have been put on the shortlist to be selected for the shared test day, who we will not reveal despite the best efforts of the guys at Double Dash Media, who we joined in the commentary box for the Alpha Live livestream of the event. Then, just before lunch, JV of Club100 had his own little surprise for us, with the words “so, are you taking it out on track in the lunch break then…” before he could finish the sentence Danny had suited up and Greg was fuelling the car for some demo laps of the Ginetta GT5 car around Whilton Mill Kart Circuit.

Congratulations to Steve Hicks on winning the first ever Club100 Superfinal, and scoring maximum points towards the Championship prize, but with the racing as close as it was at Whilton Mill, will he be able to hang on to that early lead..? We’ll see you at Buckmore for Round 2!
