MAC­CLES­FIELD’S race ace Seb Perez trav­els to his lo­cal cir­cuit of Oul­ton Park this week­end in the next round of the Simp­son Race Prod­ucts Ginetta Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship, which is con­tested by 14 to 17-year-old rac­ers.

The 16-year-old stu­dent from Kings School in Mac­cles­field will be look­ing for a bit more luck af­ter his last two out­ings at Don­ing­ton Park and Thrux­ton dur­ing May have ended in a mix­ture of suc­cess and mis­for­tune.

Af­ter a month’s break with plenty of test­ing and some tweeks to the car he hopes that this will be a turn­ing point in the sea­son for him.

Perez said: “I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to Oul­ton Park this week­end, it’s my lo­cal cir­cuit that I en­joy rac­ing on and there will be a lot of lo­cal sup­port there for me.

“The last two rounds at Don­ing­ton and Thrux­ton hadn’t gone en­tirely to plan but that’s rac­ing for you, it’s al­ways a learn­ing curve and my team JHR De­vel­op­ments have worked well on the car dur­ing the last two rounds to sort out the prob­lems, we had a good test ses­sion at Croft just over a week ago and the car is per­form­ing great and we hope this will con­tinue to Oul­ton Park.”

Perez has still a long way to go to the end of the sea­son at the be­gin­ning of Oc­to­ber.

You can fol­low him and all the ac­tion on Sun­day on ITV 4 where all his races are tele­vised live.
