Liam McNeilly claimed his and Fox Motorsport’s first victory in the Ginetta Junior championship.
McNeilly fought back from a wide moment that dropped him behind Callum Voisin to retake the race lead in the closing stages of the race.
The Fox Motorsport driver crossed the line 3.185s ahead of the battle for second to earn his and the team’s first win in the championship.
It was a good start from McNeilly, who initially came under pressure from Josh Miller but managed to shake the R Racing driver.
Voisin was next to take P2 and bring the fight to McNeilly. The pair ran side by side and McNeilly was forced wide.
He rejoined the track in the middle of the battling Will Jenkins and Miller, but managed to edge back ahead of the duo. Once back in second, McNeilly rapidly closed the gap to Voisin, sweeping past the R Racing driver in the closing stages of the race.
Voisin held onto P2, but a mechanical problem on the final lap dropped him off the back of McNeilly. He tried to continue, but Tom Edgar and Jenkins were able to come through and bumped Voisin down to P4.

Aston Millar climbed up from eighth on the grid to take fifth, ahead of Seb Hopkins, who bounced back from a difficult qualifying to finish sixth.
After spending most of the race at the sharp end of the field, Miller dropped back to seventh in the closing stages, finishing just ahead of Josh Rowledge, Robert de Haan and Joe Wheeler.
