Josh Rowledge wins the second Ginetta Junior race of the weekend after a dramatic final lap at Thruxton.

The top 10 drivers were all battling for position at the front of the order, but it was Rowledge who came out on top.

Kanato Le led for most of the race, but Will Macintyre and Liam McNeilly were never too far behind. Rowledge made it a four car battle at the front of the order. In the early stages of the race, the group had a considerable gap to Harri Reynolds, who had dropped four places on the opening lap, but as they began to battle Reynolds was able to close in.

Macintyre and Rowledge were eventually able to find a way past Le, with McNeilly following through the following lap. Rowledge then took the lead from Macintyre and would be unstoppable through the remainder of the race.

The rest of the group stuck close to Rowledge, though, and by the final laps the top 10 were nose to tail and battling for position. Rowledge was pushed through the final chicane, but managed to come out unscathed. Macintyre and Reynolds did not, coming together and dropping back.

Zak Meakin, who spent most of the race in the mid-field, managed to avoid the drama to take second, albeit three seconds behind Rowledge, and ahead of Macintyre and McNeilly.

Luke Watts, who also joined the battle late, finished fifth, ahead of Joe Warhurst and Le.

Adam Brown, Aqil Alibhai and Sonny Smith completed the top 10. Reynolds came through in P12.
