Voisin back to winning ways at Knockhill

Callum Voisin was back to winning ways at Knockhill as he took victory in the postponed Oulton Park race.

Red flags and delays at Oulton Park meant the second Ginetta Junior race of the weekend could not be run.

It was instead run at Knockhill, with the grid set by qualifying at Oulton Park.

Josh Rowledge had taken pole ahead of Voisin and Aston Millar, but an off on the opening lap droped the pole sitter down to P6. Voisin came through to take the race lead and had his team-mate Millar close behind him.

The two R Racing run drivers ran together to extend a gap to the rest of the order, but began to battle between themselves as the race entered the closing stages.

As the pair battled, Liam McNeilly drastically cut the gap they had built up. The earlier race winner had climbed up from seventh on the grid, taking third from Max Dodds with a move up the inside of the Asetto Motorsort run driver.

McNeilly managed to get within a second of the leaders, but a lock-up hindered his progress. He had a comfortable gap to the rest of the order though and came home to take a podium finish.

Voisin held off Millar to take his sixth win of the season.

Robert de Haan led a four way battle for P4, managing to hold off Dodds, Will Jenkins and Harri Reynolds.

After a mistake at the start of the race, Josh Miller ended the race eighth while Rowledge and Jamie Osbourne rounded out the top 10.
