Double Rockingham Podium Boosts Robertson’s Points Lead

1 Mins read

Charlie Robertson has increased his advantage at the top of the Ginetta Junior Championship standings with a pair of second place’s at Rockingham.

After dominating qualifying to take pole position for both outings, a pair of robust races meant the 15 year old was unable to add to his recent run of wins.

The opening race saw the Investigo-backed driver shuffled down to fourth on the opening lap. On lap two, contact at the exit of Tarzan with chief title rival Sennan Fielding dropped him to sixth, though a great recovery drive saw him get into second and miss out on the win by just 0.3 seconds.

In race two, Robertson held the lead until lap three, when he was overtaken by Fielding. Rather than fight back and risk contact, Robertson settled for second, once again finishing just 0.3 seconds behind the winner.

“Overall it’s been a good weekend, collecting as many points as possible is the aim and we’ve done that”, said the HHC Motorsport driver, “We had the pace to take a win this weekend, so I am a bit disappointed about that, but hopefully we can carry on the momentum of being on the podium at Silverstone and the final round at Brands.”
