Upwell teenage racer Jake Giddings was in good form at the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup Championships at Brands Hatch after a series of stunning drives.
The 17-year-old qualified in seventh and 10th places for the two races of the weekend in a 30-minute session that saw pole position change lap by lap between the top 10 drivers. His first pole position of the season was ruined by waved yellow flags.
In race one the College of West Anglia student made a good start and battled to a respectable eighth place.
The second race took place in heavy rain and after a terrible start he progressed up the field to finish in 10th place.
Jake said: “This weekend has been a bit of a turning point for us. Hopefully I can return next season and be a championship contender. I would also like to thank my team Finesse Motor Sport who have been brilliant.”
