Brands Hatch GP RD2 – 7th-9th August 2020
We were at Brands Hatch GP, Kent, for the second round of the Ginetta Junior Championship. We came into the weekend with minimal testing on the GP layout.
Friday we were working with Laser Tools British Touring Car driver Aiden Moffat as our driver coach, helping us throughout the day with getting to grips with the track and helping us improve for the best chance across the weekend.
Saturday we started with an early qualifying, where we qualified P4 for Race 1 and P3 for Race 2, our best qualifying positions to date! Race 1 followed, and after a good race swapping positions between 3rd and 4th, we finished in 4th place, and 2nd rookie. It was a similar story in Race 2, swapping positions with 3rd and 4th throughout the race to end in 4th place, and 2nd rookie, along with gaining the extra point for fastest lap of the race.
Sunday we only had the televised Race 3 and we started in P4 as a result of finishing in this position in Race 2. We got into P3 early on in the race, however after an early safety car, P4 was yet again the position we stayed in for the duration of the race, picking up our third P4 finish of the weekend, and our third P2 rookie.
A great weekend with many points gained, also meaning we have moved into P5 in the championship after two rounds.
A two week break and then we are travelling up to Knockhill, Scotland for Round 3 of the championship.
