Michael Caine says he is not thinking of retiring just yet after ending his season with three podium finishes at the weekend.

The 46-year-old has endured a frustrating debut season in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup, but finished his campaign on a high with a win and two third-place finishes at Brands Hatch.

And with his seat for the 2016 season yet to be decided, the former British GT champion, who is based in Newmarket, has no plans on calling it a day on a career spanning more than 20 years.

He said: “I don’t know what I’m doing for next year but I don’t want to retire yet. The passion is still there and I will look at all the options. The backing from both Newmarket Motor Company and Amigos has been great this year.”

After claiming third-place finishes in the opening two races at the weekend, Caine took first in the final race to bump himself up to fourth in the championship standings.

“To get on the podium is what you try to do and for us it was the best weekend we’ve had,” he said.

n Newmarket’s Oliver Jarvis finished fourth with his team in the latest round of the FIA World Endurance Championship in Fuji, Japan on Sunday.
