Will Macintyre finishes 2nd in the Ginetta Junior Championship!
It was an excellent weekend for Will Macintyre at Brands Hatch as he raced in the final three races of the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship.
There was a lot of stop-start action in the opening race on Saturday afternoon. Incidents at Druids and Hawthorns caused the race to be red-flagged after lap one, forcing a ten-minute restart using the original grid. Will secured another rookie class win and fourth overall, maintaining a steady position towards the front of the pack for the entire race.
With Will starting 5th on the grid for the weekend’s second race, he steadily made his way up to 2nd, overtaking Watts, Reynolds, and Alibhai throughout. Will finished 2nd overall and 1st in the rookie class.
On Sunday, the final race of the championship began with Will diving down the inside of McNeilly into Druids. This began a gripping duel for victory between the two, with Macintyre prevailing to finish the race on top. Along with Will, four other Elite Motorsport drivers finished in the top 6.
Will drove brilliantly all weekend, with three rookie class wins and 1st overall for the weekend’s last race. In the Ginetta Junior Championship, Will finished 2nd in the season, 97 points ahead of Liam McNeilly and just behind Josh Rowledge.
We are incredibly proud of Will and cannot wait to see what’s next!
