Charlie Robertson stormed to the top of the 2012 Ginetta Junior Championship standings after an utterly dominant performance in Rounds Five and Six at Thruxton, the HHC Motorsport driver taking two pole positions, two race wins and two fastest laps.

Robertson stamped his authority on the weekend during qualifying, going quickest by a huge 0.8 seconds on his way to pole position for both races. The Whyteleafe-based driver converted both poles into conclusive race wins, leading both from lights to flag, winning the opener by ten seconds.

The first double-winning weekend of the 15 year old's career moves the Investigo and Ria Capital Markets-supported driver into the championship lead for the first time this season ahead of a six week break before the next rounds.

A delighted Robertson said: “This has been the perfect way to bounce back from the troubles we had at Donington.  was praying for rain after qualifying, I knew my wet pace was really good and so rain would be good for us in the races and I think I proved that with two wins out of two, my first ever double on the TOCA package. It's absolutely fantastic.”
