Perez Enjoys “Tough But Fun” Ginetta Opener At Brands

Seb Perez was pleased with his pace in the opening rounds of the 2015 Ginetta Junior Championship at Brands Hatch over the Easter weekend.

Perez, who made his Ginetta debut at the Kent venue in the 2014 season finale, lapped within half a second of pole position in qualifying, putting him fifteenth on the 25 car grid in his JHR Developments G40J.

Unfortunately in both races Perez had to fight back after losing ground when cars spun in front of him, leading to a 21st place finish in race one and 13th in race two despite a dislodged bonnet.

“That was pretty good for my first race weekend and everyone on the grid is extremely competitive,” he said.

“It was very tough but really good fun. It was a lot to take in with all the other cars out there, but we were pleased with how it all went. It will be interesting to see how we get on in the next races on home ground at Donington Park.”
