Jenkins holds of Millar for maiden victory

Will Jenkis in his Ginetta leads a train of drivers on track

Will Jenkins takes his maiden Ginetta Junior championship victory in the second race of the weekend at Silverstone.

The Elite Motorsport driver set the fastest lap of the race on his way to the win ahead of championship leader Aston Millar.

Millar pushed hard and tried a late move on the final lap but couldn’t quite get past Jenkins and had to settle for P2.

It was Seb Hopkins who took the lead off the line, beating Aston Millar to the first corner while Robert de Haan battled Joe Warhurst for third. Jenkins came up past the battling drivers and closed onto the back of Millar.

Hopkins held onto the race lead while Millar, Jenkins, and de Haan swapped second position. Jenkins was eventually able to find a way past Hopkins while Hopkins was shuffled back to third.

He spent the remainder of the race with a train of drivers behind him. At one point the to seven were nose to tail. Millar was the only driver able to challenge for the position, but Jenkins held him off to take the victory.

Millar’s second place further extended his championship lead over Liam McNeilly, who came home P7, and Hopkins, who dropped behind de Haan to finish P4.

It was another miserable race for Callum Voisin who had a spin midway through the race. He dropped back from his position in the midfield to the back of the pack and climbed back up to 16.

At the front of the field, it was a best result of the season for Jamie Osbourne. After a disappointing end to race one, it was a mistake free run for the Assetto Motorsport driver to finish P5 ahead of Josh Rowledge and McNeilly.

Josh Miller, Freddie Tomlinson and Harri Reynolds completed the top 10.
