King Taking The Positives From “Tough” Donington Outing

1 Mins read

Harry King is targeting a top ten breakthrough in the Ginetta Junior Championship next time out at Thruxton following a mixed outing at Donington Park last weekend.

The 15 year old qualified twelfth on the grid for the opening race in Leicestershire and eventually took the flag in thirteenth after being embroiled in a fierce battle over eleventh spot.

Following an unfortunate retirement in race two due to a mechanical issue, King was able to showcase his improving racecraft from the back off the grid in race three.

Some great racing in the midfield pack saw King climb up from twentieth at the start to his best result of the season so far in twelfth in his Elite Motorsport Ginetta G40.

“It’s been a tough weekend in terms of results, but there are also a lot of positives for me to take away from it,” said King. “The team had worked hard on the car since Brands Hatch and it felt really good.

“I think that I’ve gained good experience of racing in the pack and have shown that I can fight hard with people on track and make up places. My racecraft has certainly improved and now I just need a little bit of luck on my side.

“Thruxton is next and having already tested at the circuit, I’m really excited about going there to race. Hopefully I can take everything I have learned here, and we can push forwards into the top ten.”
