Hill declared winner of Snetterton Ginetta Junior thriller

Following an investigation by race officials at Snetterton yesterday evening, Jake Hill has been declared the winner of round 12 of the Ginetta Junior Championship.

Hill, who now has won seven times this season, was fighting with Chris Swanwick for the lead of the race when the cars dived into Russell on the ninth and final lap. Swanwick overshot the chicane and missed out the corner for which the Clerk of the Course decided gave him an unfair advantage (under MSA General Regulation C.2.3).

As a result, a penalty of three seconds was added to Swanwick's race time, which was enough to hand the race win to Jake Hill. Swanwick appealed the decision but the stewards upheld the Clerk of the Course's decision and the result therefore stands.

This means that Hill now has a two-point advantage over Louise Richardson in the championship heading to Silverstone on August 21/22.
