Early Ginetta Pace And Progress Pleases Priaulx

1 Mins read

Seb Priaulx says he is focusing on improving his racecraft after showing some impressive pace in his short Ginetta Junior Championship career so far.

Bursting onto the scene with fourth in qualifying on the opening weekend at Brands Hatch, Priaulx followed that up by putting himself fifth on the grid last weekend at Donington Park.

While luck was against him in the races at Brands, the Guernseyman was able to collect a hat-trick of Rookie Class podiums during the visit to Leicestershire.

Priaulx’s best overall result came with seventh in the opening race, as he found himself in the middle of the hard-fought midfield battling throughout the three races.

With a top ten breakthrough under his belt, Priaulx is now hoping to translate his qualifying pace into front-running results soon.

“We’ve shown we’ve got the pace, and we’ve just got to put the racecraft with it now,” Priaulx told TCF.

“I think we’ve been running as first or second fastest rookie throughout this weekend, which is fantastic and I’m happy to be showing that pace this early.

“We’re still learning the racecraft though. I haven’t really done much racing yet and it’s going to improve every time I go on track.”

Priaulx, son of three-time WTCC champion Andy, is embarking on his first season in the Ginetta’s this year with JHR Developments and says he is loving the experience so far.

“It’s a great championship. When you’re watching from trackside it looks easier than it is. It’s a really tough series,” he added.

“I’m really enjoying the close racing, attacking and defending all the time with loads of cars around you.”
