Taylor makes it two from two at Brands

by Bethonie Waring

Elite Motorsport’s James Taylor makes it two from two with his second victory of the Ginetta Junior Winter Series.

Taylor put in another dominant performance to finish more than 10 seconds ahead of Daniel Gale in tretcherous conditions at Brands Hatch.

As the field pulled onto the grid, rain began to fall at the Kent track, prompting a second green flag lap before the race proper.

The changing conditions didn’t phase Taylor as he once again made a strong start while the rest of the field bunched together at the first corner. The Elite Motorsport driver didn’t put a wheel wrong through the 15 minute race, repeatedly setting fastest laps around the short Indy circuit.

He ended the day 10.849s ahead of Gale, who jumped up to second on the opening lap. Gale also enjoyed a quiet race, five seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Joel Pearson completed the podium, passing front row starter Aston Millar on the opening lap. Pearson then came under pressure from the fast starting Zak Taylor. Taylor tried to find a way past Pearson but the pair made contact, sending Taylor wide and dropping him to the back of the field.

Taylor spent the rest of the race slowly climbing up through the order, passing Freddie Tomlinson for sixth in the closing laps.

Millar stayed close behind his team-mate, but couldn’t find a way past Pearson and had to settle for his second fourth place of the weekend, ahead of Bailey Voisin.

Tom Edgar spent the closing stages of the race battling for seventh with Tomlinson, but slipped backwards on the final lap, allowing Scholarship winner Tom Lebbon to come through to take eighth.

William Aspin completed the top 10 ahead of Ben Kasperczak, who fell to the back of the field after a run through the gravel at Paddock Hill Bend.
