This season has already seen 28 teenage racers battling it out in the ultra-competitive KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Championship. With six different pole sitters at as many venues, plus no less than 11 drivers finishing on the podium, we’re going to be in for an exciting ride at Knockhill.
Jamie Caroline (HHC) arrives in Scotland as the man to beat at the top of the drivers’ standings. Leading the championship by just 22 points over closest rival Senna Proctor, who claimed his maiden podium at the track in 2014. The pair will fight it out with Proctor’s JHR teammates Billy Monger and Dan Zelos for bragging rights after the weekend.
Just outside the top five, R & J Motorsport drivers Lewis Brown and Jonathan Hadfield will once again indulge in a little wheel-to-wheel action with their close rival Patrik Matthiesen (HHC). Whilst Stuart Middleton (Douglas) will be looking to secure a strong points haul following a tough meeting at Snetterton.
Will Tregurtha (RCE) enjoyed his best result of the year with a fourth place last time out. Taking similar top results were Geri Nicosia (Elite) in his career best finish of sixth overall, and Alex Day (Tollbar) who took a second in the rookie class. The trio all made appearances on the Rookie Cup podium and will aim to do so again here.
Completing JHR Developments’ line up are Sebastien Perez and Rowan Bailey, whilst HHC Motorsport will also field relative newcomers Devlin De Francesco and Charlie Fagg. Meanwhile R & J Motorsport are completed by Kyle Hornby – who finished second at Croft – and Frank Bird.
TCR have looked strong all season and will be hoping for a good result from their drivers Matt Chapman, Connor Grady, Dave Wooder and Cameron Roberts, who all ran well at the last event. Rounding out the grid is Ben Green, who will be looking for some top 10 results in his vibrant green G40. To keep track of the action live from your phone, follow @Ginettacars on Twitter.
