Jake hit by struggles

UPWELL teenager Jake Giddings endured a difficult weekend in the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup Championship at Donington Park.

Returning from a massive accident at Brands Hatch, the College of West Anglia motorsport student struggled all weekend with an underperforming reshelled car.

Qualifying 16th and 17th for his two races, the 17-year-old had to deal with a broken suspension component that destroyed a front tyre, and a niggling diff problem.

He maintained his position well in both races to finish 15th and 16th respectively.

Jake’s next two championship rounds are at the high speed Hampshire circuit Thruxton this Saturday and Sunday, and feature live on ITV4 as part of the British Touring Car Championship package.
