2015 Ginetta Juniors: How The Title Can Be Won


Jamie Caroline and Senna Proctor will lock horns this weekend as they play out the final chapter of a thrilling 2015 Ginetta Junior Championship title battle that looks set to go right down to the wire.

Proctor hauled himself right back into contention last time out at Silverstone with a pair of second place finishes, as Caroline saw his points lead take a hit due to a nightmare second race in Northamptonshire.

Caroline did secure his eighth win of the season in the opening race though, which means he holds a seventeen point advantage over Proctor on dropped scores with two races remaining around the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit.

Caroline can win the title in the opening race of the weekend if he outscores Proctor by fifteen points – the equivalent of a third place finish and Proctor finishing tenth or lower.

If Proctor were to go and take a clean sweep of the race wins, fastest laps and pole positions, Caroline would need to pick up a second and a third place finish to secure the crown.

To take the title, Proctor needs to outscore Caroline by eighteen points across the weekend – for example a pair of podium finishes would be enough if Caroline didn’t take more than a sixth and seventh.

Patrik Matthiesen leads the way in the Rookie Cup meanwhile, his maiden outright win at Brands meaning he holds a 28 point advantage over Stuart Middleton – meaning if he outscores his rival by six points in the opening race, Matthiesen will secure the crown with a race to spare.

Finally in the Teams Championship it’s a straight shoot-out between JHR Developments and HHC Motorsport with the two outfits tied on 902 points head into the meeting, meaning it couldn’t be simpler – whoever takes the most points from Brands Hatch are champions.
