Ginetta Junior

Perez Pleased By Croft Top Ten Breakthrough

1 Mins read

Sebastian Perez has ended the first half of his maiden Ginetta Junior Championship campaign on a high at Croft with his first top ten finish of the season.

The Kick Start Energy-backed racer had previously carded a best finish of eleventh at Thruxton, but went one better in the opening Croft race before adding a fourteenth in race two for his biggest points haul of the season so far with JHR Developments.

Perez, the son of national rallying star Steve, qualified eighteenth on the grid for the opening race, in which he battled well in the action-packed midfield to climb through to tenth at the finish. He ran ninth early in race two, before a trip to the grass to avoid a spinning car lost him some ground.

“That’s my best result to date,” said Perez. “I had a great race and stayed out of trouble. I’m very pleased with the result as our aim has always been to be running in the mid-field by the middle part of the season and we’re bang on target. We’re where we wanted to be.”
