Arden-backed Caldwell grabs Rookie prize on Ginetta Junior debut
Arden Young Driver Academy member Olli Caldwell made his car racing debut in Ginetta Juniors at Croft last weekend, picking up fifth in his first race.
The JHR Developments driver only turned 14 six days before his first race but was able to claim a rookie driver podium on his debut, having only competed in karts before. He was 16th and 13th in the other two races.
“It was my first race and to get a trophy is great – I didn’t expect that,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the next round now.”
JHR boss Steve Hunter added: “It couldn’t have been a better showing in his first race – it was an exceptional result.
“It’s nice to see someone who can come straight in to the championship and is doing very well.”
