KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Preview : Oulton Park

KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Preview : Oulton Park

The KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Championship has seen four different race winners in the opening six races, whilst nine different drivers have graced the overall podium already this year, making it one of the most competitive championships on the BTCC support package. 

After receiving national praise – which even saw @JennieGow sending her commendations - following her double win at Thruxton, all eyes will be on lady racer and leading rookie, Sophia Floersch this weekend.

Having made history twice in Hampshire as the only rookie racer to have won both races in a Ginetta G40 and the youngest ever Ginetta Junior race winner to boot, she will have to defend hard from her HHC Motorsport teammates Patrik Matthiesen and Jamie Caroline who aren’t far behind in the overall title race and with four podiums between them, they will be hot on her heels.

Up front, Senna Proctor still leads the championship for JHR Developments thanks to two wins and a pair of additional podiums, but his teammates Billy Monger and Dan Zelos were particularly racy last weekend and are tipped for a strong weekend in Cheshire.

After a tough start to her 2015 campaign, Esmee Hawkey will be looking to chalk up a good handful of points this weekend, as will her JHR partners Rowan Bailey and Seb Perez, who are both tied on points heading to Oulton.

Stuart Middleton made a point of showing why he was chosen for the  Quinton Hazell Ginetta Junior Scholarship this season after qualifying on pole position and picking up his first overall podium last time out with a third place for the Douglas Motorsport team.

In the R & J Motorsport squad, Jonathan Hadfield is looking to add to his race win from Donington Park – and hopes to lead teammates Lewis Brown, Frank Bird and Kyle Hornby to similar success here.

Matt Chapman and Cameron Roberts enjoyed their strongest weekends of the season at Thruxton and will be hoping for similar improvement this weekend along with their partner at TCR, Dave Wooder.

For RCE, Will Tregurtha will be looking to maintain his place inside the top 10, whilst William Stacey (Jamsport), Geri Nicosia (Elite Motorsport) will be looking to climb the points table ahead of Alex Day (Tollbar Racing) and Ben Green (SuperGreen Racing).
