Macintyre Upholds Second Place in Current Standings for the Ginetta Junior Championship
This weekend was the first race following the five week summer break for The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship.
Macintyre, sponsored by InReach, is now second in the current standings for 2022 following a very exciting weekend in Kockhill, Scotland.
The opening race on Saturday was an exciting event, our Macintyre managed to finish second in the rookies although later it was announce that he would receive a 1.8 second time penalty following an incident on the circuit – this meant after the first race he finished in position 11 on the leader board. Maurice Henry finished in first place, followed by Josh Rowledge in second.
On Sunday, the junior league were first on the track and gave the crowd and entertaining race. Macintyre finished fifth in this race – a great improvement from Saturdays eleventh and no penalties in sight. Josh Rowledge finished in first in this race, and his success didn’t stop there.
The third race of the weekend for the junior team was on Sunday evening, this race was televised on ITV. Rowledge and McNeilly battled it out for first place with Rowledge taking first place for the second time that day. Macintyre was managing to hold on to third place for the majority of the race but scarily slipped into sixth with only 2 laps to go. He did manage to claw it back and finished third in this race.
After his performance this weekend, Macintyre has maintained his second place in the current standings overall – what a great achievement.
It is great to see Will doing so well during these races – we are proud sponsors of his accomplishments!
