After a season long battle with James Fleming, Jake Byrne has emerged victorious in the 2012 Ginetta Junior Ireland Championship.

With seven wins to his name, including two double victory weekends in Kirkistown, Byrne used his experience from the last two seasons to gain the upper hand and secure the championship title.

As a prize for winning the title, Byrne has secured himself a test with Speedworks Motorsport in a Toyota Avensis BTCC car, as well as the use of a Ginetta G40 in the 2013 Total Quartz Ginetta GT5 Challenge.
