Lorcan Hanafin took his maiden win in the Ginetta Junior Championship in the final race at Knockhill this weekend. In what was a very impressive performance in race three, Hanafin started the race 12th on the grid and crossed the finish line in second place. A 2.8 second penalty for the initial winner saw him drop to second place and handing Hanafin his maiden win.
Qualifying saw Gus Burton secure two 5th place starts for Douglas Motorsport. Race 1 saw Gus cross the line in 3rd but received a 10 second penalty for what was deemed a false start. An unlucky end to what was a great performance from Gus. In race 2 Gus had dropped to thirteenth overall at one stage and spent over 5 lps there before making a charge through the field, eventually finishing 5th. Race 3 and another 5th place start for Gus saw him make up one space to finish in 4th
The 2019 Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship season continues in two weeks’ time (28/29 September) with three races around the Silverstone National circuit.
