Wooder Heads Incredibly Close Junior Silverstone Practice


Dave Wooder topped the timesheets in Friday practice ahead of the penultimate meeting of the 2015 Ginetta Junior Championship at Silverstone, with twenty cars separated by less than a second at the end of the day.

All bar one of the drivers set their best times of the day in the second of the thirty minute sessions around the National circuit, with Total Control Racing’s Wooder coming out on top with a best effort of 1m 10.471s.

That proved to be over quarter of a second faster than the next best effort by Dan Zelos, with the same margin splitting the next seven cars, led by Cameron Roberts to cap off a strong day’s running for the TCR squad.

Four of the next five cars came from HHC Motorsport, with only Senna Proctor in sixth splitting Devlin DeFrancesco, Jamie Caroline, Patrik Matthiesen and Charlie Fagg. Ninth meanwhile was Esmee Hawkey, a big confidence booster for her as she targets a first top ten race finish.

Matt Chapman rounded out the top ten ahead of Jonathan Hadfield and Rockingham podium finishers Stuart Middleton and Lewis Brown, with Geri Nicosia in fourteenth with his best effort from session one.

Will Tregurtha, in a new car borrowed from Xentek Motorsport after his suffered substantial damage at Rockingham three weeks ago, was 20th, while Billy Monger will hope to find some pace for qualifying after finishing up down in 21st.
