Seb Morris is set to seal the 2011 Ginetta Junior Championship title this weekend when the series heads to Brands Hatch for its penultimate rounds of the season, with Morris holding a lead of over 100 points in the championship standings.

Morris' incredible season has seen him win eleven of the sixteen races so far, the Hillspeed driver having led the championship all campaign. A couple of top ten finishes should be enough to see the 15 year old take the title, which he will add to his 2010 Ginetta Junior Winter Series crown. 

Morris said: “We're getting closer and closer to sealing the championship and it could happen at Brands. But until it's properly in the bag we're not taking anything at all for granted. We'll be working with the same approach we have all year: get the best set-up we can with the car, focus on qualifying as high up the order as we can and then put together two strong races.”

A host of drivers will be looking to steal the headlines from Morris, headed by 2011 racewinners George Gamble and Charlie Robertson. Driving for TJ Motorsport and HHC Motorsport respectively, the duo are embroiled in a fight for second in the championship standings, so head to Kent aiming to add to their three and two wins this season respectively.

Looking to take his maiden Ginetta Junior win after a hugely impressive showing last time out is Niall Murray, the 2010 Ginetta Junior Ireland Champion taking two second places at Rockingham in his Beacon Racing prepared G40J. Also impressing recently has been privateer Max Coates, who is hunting down William Foster for fourth in the championship standings, TJ Motorsport's Sennan Fielding, who took a double podium at Rockingham and Myles Collins, who has been challenging at the front since changing teams mid-season. All three will be hoping to get themselves on the podium at Brands.
