Slater bounces back to race two win

Freddie Slater bounces back from a disappointing race one to win the second race of the Ginetta Junior Winter Series.

The R Racing driver took the race one victory on track but was handed a 10 second time penalty for a false start. There would be no such error in the second race of the weekend, where Slater perfected two race starts.

Slater shot into the lead off the initial start, with pole sitter Luke Watts slipping into P2. The race was red flagged after a lap when Thomas Spragg ended up in the gravel at the exit of Paddock Hill Bend.

The grid was reset to the original starting order, but Slater once again jumped Watts on the start. Slater got a better start the second time around and pulled away from Watts.

He spent the remainder of the race comfortably ahead of his team-mate and finished 1.281s ahead.

Alisha Palmowski held onto third ahead of Reza Seewooruthun and Sid Smith.

McKenzie Douglass and Finn Harrison ran into trouble late in the race. The pair were battling inside the top 10 when they came together at Druids. Both dropped down the order and Douglass was left stuck on track.

Mikey Porter and Luca Hopkinson swept past the pair to take sixth and seventh, ahead of a recovering Harrison.

Dan Munrow and Chase Fernandez completed the top 10.
