Jacob Watts cemented his lead at the top of the Silverstone Junior Rally Championship after winning first in class in the second round held at Blyton Park.

It was an exceptional result for Jacob, who had a stage maximum penalty during the first stage before clawing back 2.5 minutes throughout the day to take first place.

Junior driver Alex Mill was second in class and Jacob Crane third.

The event is an ideal way for juniors to get into the world of rallying competition.

Chairman of Silverstone Motor Club Andrew Johnson said: “This championship was very focused on junior driving ability and juniors driving in equally powered cars.

“Any juniors wishing to join the club and take part in a championship with this focus would be most welcome, 2013 regulations will be out shortly.

“I also want to thank Lindholme MSC for organising such a great event.”
