Voisin picks up win number seven at Thruxton

Callum Voisin's Ginetta leads a number of other cars on track

Callum Voisin climbed back from seventh on the grid to take his seventh win of the season at Thruxton.

It was a traditionally hard fought Ginetta Junior battle, with Will Jenkins, Liam McNeilly, and Seb Hopkins all battling for the position.

Jenkins started on pole and initially did a good job of holding back Liam McNeilly, but the battle kept Voisin close behind. When McNeilly ran wide, Voisin was able to climb up to P2 and picked up where the Fox Motorsport driver left off in the battle for the lead.

It didn’t take long for him to find a way past Jenkins and, with the fight at the front so close, Jenkins was shuffled back to P5.

Voisin was able to edge away from the battle in the closing stages of the race and finished 1.256s ahead of the rest of the field.

Behind, Jenkins managed to recover to take second ahead of Hopkins.

McNeilly had been set to finish fourth, but contact between him and Robert de Haan late on dropped them both backwards. McNeilly finished fifth, behind Aston Millar, while de Haan took seventh behind Josh Rowledge, who avoided any drama after a difficult opening race.

Joe Wheeler took seventh ahead of Max Dodds and Freddie Tomlinson, who took the fastest lap of the race and had been at the front of the field early on before an incident dropped him down the order.
