The Ginetta Junior Championship took to Donington Park for the third and final time for the weekend with a twelve lap race.

James Taylor started from pole followed by James Hedley, Gus Burton and top rookie Theo Edgerton.

As the lights went out it was, Hedley made a good start followed by James Taylor and Burton. Theo Edgerton slipped into third as Burton run off of the track, rejoining further down the pack. Edgerton was on a roll as he sped up the inside of James Taylor briefly before having to relinquish the position .

Four laps in Edgerton nudged Ben O’Hare into a spin, the resulting accident ended Edgertons race while O’Hare continued for a few laps, but was eventually forced to retire due to his bonnet hanging off. 

On lap eight Will Rochford had to retire to the pits due to a problem with his steering and a puncture. Rookies Ben Kasperczak and Ethan Brooks took each other out with two laps to go ending their weekend in the gravel.

Meanwhile Hedley was ahead of the pack with a 9.584 second lead. The battle for the final two podium spots was between Burton and O’Sullivan, who both took a trip across the gravel, Burton could not defend his position and lost out. 

With one lap to go Hedley led with an astonishing 20.305 second gap. Rookie O’Sullivan was in second place followed by James Taylor.

Hedley was in a class of his own and went on to take his second race win of the weekend and third podium finish. 

Top rookie O’Sullivan claimed second place followed by James Taylor in third. The rookie podium resulted in O’Sullivan taking first place followed by Casper Stevenson and Roman Bilinski. The fastest lap was set unsurprising by Hedley with a lap of 1:24.990s.

Haytham Qarajouli received a ten second penalty for a false start, that would ultimately result in a twentieth place finish. Daniel Gale also received a five second penalty for exceeding track limits and a further ten second penalty for the same thing. Roman Bilinski also received a five second penalty for also exceeding track limits. 

Classification for the last race of the weekend looks like:
