Top 10 finish gives Kasperczak “confidence boost”

by Bethonie Waring

Croft gave new privateer Ben Kasperczak a “confidence boost” after his first top 10 finish of the season.

Kasperczak parted ways with In2Racing ahead of the fourth round of the Ginetta Junior season and ran under the BK Racing banner at Croft.

After qualifying 19th, he enjoyed a strong start in Sunday’s race, finishing inside the top 10 despite an off midway through the race.

Kasperczak said the top 10 finish was a positive step forward.

“That was my best finish of the year so far. We’re slowly getting there but we’re getting there.

“I’m more confident now after my top 10 finish. That was my goal for the season. It’s a real confidence boost four rounds into the season. Let’s see what we can do in the next four.”

Kasperczak had been running 13th after an early safety car period when contact with another driver dropped him down the order. But the Junior Saloon Car race winner quickly made back the positions, passing Douglas Motosport’s Freddie Tomlinson for 10th on lap 8 of 10.

“I got pushed through onto the mud, but I went through it,” he said “Lucklily I didn’t spin. I lost four places but I did get them back later in the race.”

Croft’s meeting was limited to just one race due to heavy rain on Saturday and noise restrictions limiting running time on Sunday.

Kasperczak said he would have liked to have raced twice, but admitted it was probably the right decision to postpone the race.

“I think if it was wet, it would have mixed it up a bit, but it increases the chances of being smashed off and getting damaged.

“If it did go ahead there would have been a lot of damage, so it was probably best they didn’t do it. But I would have liked to race in it to see what happens.”
