Zelos Sticks With JHR For Title Challenge

“Dan Zelos will return to the Kick Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship this season, targeting a championship challenge with JHR Developments.

Zelos will remain with reigning teams champions JHR, who also took the drivers crown with Jack Mitchell, following a hugely impressive rookie campaign together last year.

The Norfolk-based racer, who made his debut in the 2013 Winter Series, scored a maiden race win in Round Five at Thruxton, and went on to add a second towards the end of the season at Rockingham.

They were two of nine podium finishes in total for the 16 year old, who finished the year fourth overall in the standings as the second highest rookie.

“I’m a much stronger driver now than I was this time last year, and the experience that comes with being a second-year competitor really can’t be underestimated – I know the team, I know the circuits and most importantly of all, I know what to expect,” said Zelos.

“I had a fantastic year with JHR in 2014, which far exceeded my expectations. I learned a tremendous amount, and combined with the results we attained, that gives me a lot of confidence going into 2015. The goal is clearly more victories and a lot of podium finishes, because consistency will play an important role.”
