Brown Takes Opening Junior Winter Series Pole

by Simon Paice

Lewis Brown has secured pole position for the opening round of the 2015 Ginetta Junior Winter Series in qualifying at Snetterton.

A wet circuit greeted the nineteen car field for the opening fifteen minute qualifying session of the weekend, which determined the grids for the day’s opening race.

It was Stuart Middleton who adapted best to the tricky conditions initially to head the timesheets for the majority of the session, but late on Brown and Billy Monger stormed ahead.

Two rapid laps earned Brown pole position for both races on his first outing with HHC Motorsport, with his best effort of 2m 37.596s just edging out a resurgent Middleton by 0.098s.

Monger, the pole-sitter at the circuit back in August, was left to settle for third on the grid ahead of Will Tregurtha, the top four separated by six tenths of a second, with Charlie Fagg fifth quickest.

Harry King, who finished third in the recent Junior Scholarship, was the fastest of the rookie entrants in sixth, with the next best debutant Max Bird in eighth behind Dave Wooder.

Alex Day and Connor Grady completed the top ten ahead of JHR duo Sebastian Perez and Rowan Bailey, Geri Nicosia and reigning Ginetta Junior Ireland champion Jordan Dempsey.

2015 Ginetta Junior Scholarship runner-up Sebastian Perez was fifteenth fastest ahead of Charlie Digby, Frank Bird and Anthony Ayres, while problems for James Roe Jnr leaves him at back of the grid after not setting a time.
