Will Macintyre Extends his Second Place Lead for the Ginetta Junior Championship
As the temperature sat over 30 degrees this weekend at Snetterton, Will MacIntyre, sponsored by InReach, clocked up a scorching performance in The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship.
He maintained his 2nd place position in the current standings for 2022, whilst also extending the gap between himself and 3rd place.
With three exhilarating races over the weekend, Will started out strong securing the 2nd fastest lap during qualifying, 1 second behind Josh Rowledge.
On Saturday, Will won the first race ahead of Liam McNeilly and Harri Reynolds. On his third lap, he nudged into first place after making his way to second during the first lap. By lap 7, Will had climbed back to first position after falling to fourth during the 5th lap securing a win during Round 14, for the Elite Motorsport Rookie.
After a strong start by Will MacIntyre in the second race of the weekend, leading for three laps, he fell to position 10 during the final laps. Kanato Le came out on top, followed by McNeilly and Smith.
Le and McNeilly started at the front of the grid for the final race. By the 2nd lap, Will had shot from starting in the middle of the grid up to 5th and then leading the race by lap 7. In the end, he finished just behind Le in 2nd position, an amazing result, moving up eight positions.
The success Will has achieved during these races is wonderful to see – we are incredibly proud to be his sponsors. He finished the week on 397 points, just 47 behind Rowledge of R Racing!
