Monger Delighted With “Near Perfect” Snetterton Outing

1 Mins read

Billy Monger moved himself back into the Ginetta Junior Championship title picture with a ‘near perfect’ meeting at Snetterton this past weekend.

The JHR Developments ace stormed to pole position in qualifying, and after narrowly missing out on victory with second in race one, he took his second win of the campaign with a lights-to-flag success in race two.

“It’s been a near perfect meeting, starting with taking pole position in qualifying by over a second,” Monger told TCF.

“We were a bit unlucky in race one, Jamie got the move on the back straight and we couldn’t catch him after that, but we were able to pull away in race two and take the victory which is fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for much more from the weekend.”

Those results have moved Monger back to within fifty points of the championship leader, but he accepts he needs more wins if he is to really challenge current points leader Jamie Caroline.

“At the beginning of the year we were focusing on consistency and championship points, but we had some bad luck in the first half of the season,” Monger added. “That means we have no other option but to go out there for wins every time to close the gap to the top.”
