Knockhill Preview – Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship

At the top of the table, JHR Developments are keen for a positive result as the Simpson Race Products Ginetta Junior Championship heads to Scotland. Their drivers Seb Priaulx and Tom Gamble currently top the points table, but are coming under increasing pressure from elsewhere in the top five.
 
The Douglas Motorsport duo of Daniel Harper and Kiern Jewiss are most certainly the pair to watch here following an impressive performance at Snetteton last time out. Harper took a pair of wins to Jewiss’ double second places, with the young racer – who leads the rookie standings - on course to take his debut win before much longer.
 
Don’t discount Tom Wood from the equation just yet. He’s only four points adrift of Jewiss and claimed his first Ginetta Junior win a fortnight ago. The HHC Motorsport driver will most certainly be looking to continue his winning ways after finishing on the overall podium during his rookie season in 2016.
 
Elsewhere, an impressive performance in Norfolk for Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner Adam Smalley (JHR Developments) sees him close in on seventh in the championship – currently held by Elite Motorsport’s Harry King – with the pair guaranteeing some exciting racing this weekend.
 
Completing the championship top 10 are JHR Developments’ Harry Dyson and Ruben Del Sarte along with Douglas Motorsport’s Conor Grady. The latter matched his best result of fourth in race two at Snetterton and will be determined to pick up his maiden podium here.
 
Jordan Collard (HHC Motorsport) leads the fight for the remaining sports inside the championship top 10. He’s proven a force to be reckoned with at the sharp end in recent meetings, with bad luck denying him his first piece of silverware, although he took a first and second place in the rookie cup here last year. Meanwhile, Richardson Racing’s Luke Browning claimed his best result of the season last time out with a seventh place, whilst Tom Canning (Douglas Motorsport) isn’t far behind. The three drivers are split by just 14 points headed here.
 
Rounding out the grid is HHC’s Charlie Digby, Matt Luff and Finley Green for JHR Developments, plus Greg Johnson and Isa Deen for Elite Motorsport; the latter of whom impressed on his debut in the championship last time out and will be continuing to develop his driving skills on his second time out.
 
With only two races on the bill, it sure is going to be one of the most exciting weekends to date. Make sure you keep up to speed with all the action by following @GinettaCars on Twitter.
