Edgar victorious in safety car truncated race at Snetterton

by Bethonie Waring

Tom Edgar takes his second victory of the season in the opening Ginetta Junior race of the weekend at Snetterton.

The R Racing driver briefly lost the race lead on the opening lap but quickly climbed back up to P1.

He spent the majority of the race extending a gap at the front of the order while a train of cars battled for second.

The gap was more than a second when Callum Voisin managed to shake off Will Jenkins and Liam McNeilly and take second. Voisin was rapidly closing the gap to Edgar and was on track to catch him before the end of the race when a safety car neutralised the race.

In the battle for positions just outside the top 10, Seb Hopkins, Jamie Osbourne and Harri Reynolds ran side by side. Hopkins was forced wide and was sent into the barrier and spinning back onto the track.

Voisin was brought onto Edgar’s tail, but the race was time limited and the field took the chequered flag before the incident could be cleared.

Post race penalty: Edgar was handed a post-race time penalty, dropping him back to P4. Voisin inherited the victory

Jenkins took second ahead of McNeilly.

McNeilly started on the front row of the grid and snatched the race lead off the line. He was forced to defend against a train of drivers and a small mistake sent him tumbling to the back of the train. He rejoined the battle for the podium positions, taking fourth ahead of Aston Millar, who also briefly ran inside the top three.

During the first half of the race, Josh Miller had led the second group of drivers, running in P6. After Josh Rowledge found a way through, Miller dropped down the order but came through to finish ninth, behind Joe Wheeler and Max Dodds.

Robert de Haan completed the top 10.
