Podium finish for Will Palmer at Brands Hatch

Youth Motor Sport –

Will Palmer made a promising start to the Ginetta Junior season, finishing fifth and second at Brands Hatch to go second in the early championship standings.

The teenager from Southwater, brother of GP2 driver Jolyon, said: “I’m really happy with how the weekend went. I scored some very good points.

“Race one was frustrating as I was so close to recording another second place, but fifth was not that bad a result. Now I can’t wait until Donington Park (April 20-21), where I’ll be hoping for two podium finishes.”

Ginetta Junior races are being shown by ITV4 as part of the channel’s coverage of the British Touring Car Championship and supporting races.

Alex Reed, 15, from Horsham, will race in the Motorsport News Ford Fiesta Junior Championship at Donington this weekend.
