Oli Basey-Fisher enjoyed a pair of strong, action-packed races during the latest rounds of the Ginetta Junior Championship at Rockingham.
Driving for Tollbar Racing with WIRED, the 17 year old started the weekend strongly, showing top five pace in wet testing on Friday. Qualifying didn’t go quite as well, the reigning Ginetta Scholarship winner having to settle for tenth on the grid for both races.
The two races saw Basey-Fisher embroiled in closely contested battles in each, with a good run seeing him finish ninth and eighth in the two encounters.
“Race one was a fantastic race in terms of racecraft, we just weren’t in the sort of position we wanted to be or should have been really”, said the Century Logistics-backed driver, “That was really my own fault in qualifying, practice had gone well so things looked promising and the car was good but the times just weren’t there unfortunately in qualifying when it mattered.
“Race two was a great race, with four of us started battling really hard amongst ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed it though, it was a really great race and I learnt a lot of racecraft which is great to take out of it. Hopefully we can build on that for Silverstone.”
