Moore Stars For Hillspeed In Scotland

Hillspeed enjoyed its most successful weekend of the season during the Ginetta Junior Championship's annual trip north of the border to Knockhill. While points leader Seb Morris took his tenth victory of the season, it was Struan Moore who stole the show, taking a superb double podium.

Qualifying saw Morris take second on the grid for both races, with Moore fourth on the grid for the opener and sixth for the race two. Morris took the lead on the opening lap of race one when he pressured the leader into a mistake and negotiated a mid-race safety car period well to control the race and take the win. Race two didn't go to plan quite as much for Morris, a lot of contact and overtaking resulting in Morris being bundled down the field on multiple occasions, ending up sixth.

For Jersey-based Moore, the event proved to be a real turning point in his season, off the back of his maiden podium at Snetterton. Race one saw him hold fourth early on before moving into third on lap four and second on lap six. Hillspeed looked set for a dream one-two, but a late attack saw Moore drop to third, though he set the fastest lap in the process. Race two saw Moore make a superb drive through the field from sixth into second, setting the fastest lap once again, the two superb results moving him up to ninth in the championship.

Team Principal Richard Ollerenshaw said: “It's been a fantastic weekend at Knockhill. Seb drove very well all weekend and to take another win was superb – 10 victories from 14 starts really does speak for itself. Struan has been in outstanding form, he really is becoming a major force in the championship and a first win for him can't be too far away. We're delighted with both of them.”
