Dave Wooder has expressed his delight after securing a breakthrough Ginetta Junior Championship race win at Thruxton.

Wooder was embroiled in a sensational battle for victory throughout the nine lap encounter, with a five car train fighting it out around the fastest circuit in the UK.

From third on the grid, courtesy of his podium finish in the opening race, Wooder was able to pick his way through to the front in the second half of the race.

“The racing in that one was mad, it was such a great race,” said Wooder.

“This is such a good championship for racing like that, with the cars being the same it makes for such close, exciting racing.

“As you saw then, all the cars are stuck together around the back of the circuit, and I’m so happy that we could get a TCR car coming out on top today.”

The win continues Wooder’s run of finishing every race in the season so far in the top five, and he’s hoping it’s the first of many this season.

“Getting our first win is a huge confidence boost for myself and the team, and now we’ve got it out of the way, we can focus on getting more over the rest of the season starting with Oulton Park. Bring it on!” he added.

The result also marks a first outright Ginetta Junior victory for the Total Control Racing squad since the corresponding meeting in 2014, and team boss Lee Brookes has praised his new winner.

“We knew Dave had the pace to get the win in the Juniors and he did a fantastic job under a huge amount of pressure,” he commented.

“He recovered well after a bad qualifying and showed his pace in both races, it’s been a very good weekend for him.”
