Kasperczak “over the moon” with best ever Ginetta Junior weekend

by Bethonie Waring

Ben Kasperczak was “over the moon” with his best ever weekend in the Ginetta Junior championship, where he took four top 10 results despite a damper problem in practice.

The BK Racing driver was put on the back foot after an issue with his Ginetta G40 meant he struggled to keep the car on track during free practice.

“We found the problem with the car,” he told Ginetta Junior Update on Saturday. “It was a damper related issue. It was sticking, so there was no rebound coming out of the damper.

“Now we’re back up to speed, where we should have been. So I’ll be positive and see what we can do with a fully working car.”

Despite a difficult qualifying, Kasperczak bounced back in the opening race to finish 10th. In race two – the rerun Croft race – he took another P10, before climbing up to eighth in race three.

Starting from inside the top 10 for the first time this season, Kasperczak managed to avoid the drama ahead of him to cross the line eighth, but moved up to seventh after Gus Burton took a 7.8s penalty.

It was Kasperczak’s best result of the season, and the four top 10 finishes move him from 18th in the championship standings to 13th.

“What a completely awesome weekend,” he posted on Facebook. “Two top 10s and then two P8s. We are over the moon with those results.

“A massive thank you to everyone who has supported me and given up your time. Roll on Thruxton!”

Following his Snetterton success, Kasperczak is offering fans the chance to have their names on his car.
