2011 Ginetta Junior Champion Seb Morris added to his already remarkable season with two more podiums finishes in the final rounds at Silverstone, making it sixteen rostrum visits in twenty races for the Hillspeed ace.

The 15 year old started fourth for the opening race and held the place until lap three, where he passed two rivals to get himself into the top two. Morris closed up on the race leader and started challenging for the lead. It soon became a three way duel for the top spot, with Morris slipping back to finish third after a tremendously close battle.

In race two, the Liberty Properties and Legat Owen-supported driver started fourth once again, but was instantly into the top three, which he then made second further around the opening lap. Instantly pressuring leader Niall Murray, the duo had a tremendous battle throughout the race, switching positions almost every lap, with Morris just missing out, the duo split by just 0,096s on the line.

Morris said: “It was really tough racing, perhaps a bit too tough at times, but I did the best I could. It was a great race and just a shame we didn't take the win, it really would have been fantastic to finish off the season back on the top step of the podium. I've taken 11 wins though this year so I think I've had my fair share!

“We finished 20 out of 20 races which is just outstanding and also with 16 out of 20 podiums. It's been an incredible season and shows the hard work the whole team has put in, I want to thank them for everything this year – it really has been amazing.”
