98 point lead for Will Macintyre in the Ginetta Junior Championship
In the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, Will Macintyre had an action-packed weekend at Thruxton. He holds the second position in the Championship, pulling even further ahead of 3rd.
During a nail-biting qualifying, the top 15 drivers were separated by less than a second. Teammate, and fellow rookie, Kanato Le secured 1st position and Will qualified 3rd ahead of the weekend races.
The weekend’s first race saw Will Macintyre, sponsored by InReach, break through the defense of McNeilly and Le on consecutive laps to move into the race lead by Lap 8. The last two laps saw Josh Rowledge closing in on 1st, but Will held his position, securing his fourth win this season.
In the afternoon, the second race started strong for Will, who was the fastest on lap two and held 2nd position before moving into 1st by lap 6. Heading into the final laps, Rowledge and Meakin pulled ahead, securing the top two finishing positions, with Will finishing 3rd – another rookie class win!
The final race saw Will seize 1st position by the second lap but he lost ground by the fourth, with Liam McNeilly and Sonny Smith pulling into the lead. Rowledge spun, leading him to fall from 3rd down to 8th, but the final six laps saw him climb through the pack finishing the race in 1st, with Will finishing 4th, 2nd as a rookie behind Smith.
He finishes the week 2nd in the Championship with 462 points, now 98 head of McNeilly, who takes 3rd. Everyone at InReach is blown away by Will’s incredible racing throughout the weekend.
