Dan Zelos put a tough few races in the Ginetta Junior Championship behind him with a hard-earned podium finish in the second race of the weekend at his home circuit of Snetterton.
Zelos endured a nightmare outing at Croft prior to the summer break, where mysterious power issues left him battling to a best of nineteenth.
It was another frustrating outing in the opening race at Snetterton, with the 17 year old left back in seventh, but he bounced back in style in race two.
From seventh on the grid, Zelos climbed through the order in an action-packed race to secure the final spot in a one-two-three finish for his JHR Developments team.
“It’s definitely a move in the right direction that’s for sure,” Zelos told TCF.
“We didn’t have the result we wanted in the opening race and it was a really bad meeting for us at Croft, so getting on the podium was a good way to end the weekend.”
Zelos is now aiming for some consistent podium finishes to get his season back on track, starting at Knockhill next weekend, while a first win of the campaign is also a target.
“The top step of the podium is still waiting for me this season and hopefully we’ll be up there soon,” Zelos added.
“We were strong at Knockhill last year, so hopefully we’ll show some good pace there this year again and stay on that podium.”
