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.”
