William Palmer produced the strongest weekend of his racing career to date with a pair of top seven finishes in the Ginetta Junior Championship at Thruxton, including a career best fourth place.

A good performance in the wet qualifying session saw the 15 year old put himself seventh on the grid in the opening race and fifth for the second race. In a dry opening encounter, Will lost two places at the start, but was soon back up to seventh by the end of the opening lap. Palmer quickly worked his way up to fifth, before gaining once more spot towards the end of the race to finish in a superb fourth place.

In an extremely wet second race, HHC Motorsport’s Palmer was challenging with then championship leader Sennan Fielding early on, ending in contact between the two that lost Will two positions. Fighting back through the field, Palmer got into sixth at the finish, but was then classified seventh in the final result following a time penalty for the incident with Fielding.

Cranleigh School student Palmer said: “Saturday was really good. The race was really fun, with a lot of racing with other cars, and to come away with a fourth place finish is really good. Sunday was a satisfying end to a very positive day; it was a shame we couldn’t move up from sixth, as we had the pace to at the end of the race and given a few more laps I’m sure we could have been fourth. Overall, it has been very good to get some decent points following on from Donington.”
