Ginetta teams praise triple-header races
Teams praised the new three-race format for Ginetta Junior after it was used for the first time at Donington Park last weekend.
Instead of drivers having their traditional Saturday morning free practice session an extra race took place, featuring a partially reversed grid.
HHC Motorsport’s Jodie Hemmings said: “I thought it was really good as it asks a bit more of the drivers.
“There was only an hourand-a-half between the second and third races so it makes them think a bit more about what they are doing. In the long-term it will make better drivers of them.”
Douglas Motorsport boss Wayne Douglas thought the format worked well, but despite his Scholar driver Daniel Harper winning the final race he added that reducing the number of points on offer for the third race could be considered. He said the reverse grid penalises success in the earlier races.
Three races will also take place at Croft, Knockhill, Rockingham and Silverstone later in the year, but at other venues where testing is limited the old two-race with practice format will be used.
