Ginetta Junior race winner Callum Voisin wasn’t expecting to take a victory so early in his car racing career, despite strong performances in preseason testing.
Voisin, whose older brother finished third in the 2020 Ginetta Junior championship, won the second race of the season after a close battle with team-mate Aston Millar.
The 14-year-old was understandably pleased with the result, but didn’t expect victories to come so early on.
“Testing went well, but then being quick and racing are two completely different things,” he told Ginetta Junior Update.
“I guess I wasn’t expecting to do so well so quick, but I’m really happy that I am.”
Voisin lies second in the overall championship standings, a point behind second year driver Seb Hopkins, who won the opening race of the season.
“I’m really happy overall with how it went,” he said
“The first race, I just wanted to bag some solid points and we did that, which was good. Then the second one, I had a bit of an iffy start, but got back up there and in the end managed to win.
“There was quite a bit of carnage, a few spins here and there. And it was close. I think it was the top five within a second or two so to win was great.”
Voisin added that he has learned a little from brother Bailey, who has graduated to the European GT4 championship. Racing with the team that helped the older Voisin challenge for the 2020 title has also helped.
“Bailey has definitely helped me,” he said. “It would be silly not to learn from him. I’ve learned small tips and tricks he’s given me. They’ve definitely helped.
“I worked really closely with R Racing over the winter too. They’re very good at what they do.”
The second round of the season gets underway at Snetterton in June.
