LOUIS Foster will head to Silverstone this weekend, full of confidence after a winning both races at the last round of the Ginetta Junior Championship at Knockhill.

The 15-year-old Lord Wandsworth College student from Odiham made the trip to Scotland keen to build on a near perfect weekend at Rockingham, where he picked up two wins out of three.

Having qualified second on the grid for the opening race, Foster produced a near faultless drive in tricky wet conditions.

Jumping into the lead at the start, he would run unchallenged at the front of the field after an early safety car period, and wrapped up his fourth win of the year by a margin of more than five seconds.

Starting race two from pole position, the teenager once again impressed in tricky wet conditions to lead from start-to-finish and secure a second victory.

With an impressive 14 overall podiums from 20 races now under his belt, Foster sits second in the championship standings before dropped scores are taken into account, with six races left.

“Coming into the weekend having not raced here before, I was hoping to fight for a podium finish so to come away with two wins is just great,” he said. “I have to say huge thanks to the guy at Elite Motorsport and particularly my mechanic James for giving me a great car that has allowed me to do the job on track. I also have to thank my sponsors including Carwow and Vansdirect for their continued support.

“It was hard to lead from the front in both races as although the spray behind was hindering the other drivers, I had to work out where the grip was on every lap and was going in blind; there was no chance to relax.

“I’m keeping the pressure on in the title race and it’s shaping up to be an exciting end to the season. Hopefully we can push for more wins in the final two rounds.”
