HOOK race Jordan Collard produced a super storming race at Knockhill, to record his best finish of the season in the Ginetta Junior Championships, as he just missed out on a podium finish coming in fourth.

The teenage driver had started his final outing at the Scottish track in 12th place and by lap seven was had moved into seventh place.

On the final lap he was up to sixth, but passed the two cars in front of him coming off the final bend to clinch fourth place right on the line.

In race one of the weekend, Collard got himself up into the top 10, before he was hit at the chicane by Harry Dyson, which forced him down the order, but he fought back to finish ninth.

A delighted father Rob Collard, who was racing in the British Touring Car Championship at the same venue, said: “It was great to see Jordan do so well and to pass the championship leader on the last bend was great. It would be nice for him to get on the podium next time.”

Rob Collard continued his solid season at Knockhill with two uneventful fourth places in races one and two.

His final outing, saw the reverse grid, and Collard started from seventh and battled his way up the field and passed title rival Gordon Shedden to go second.

However, the Scot on his home track, fought back taking the Hampshire racer off the track and then on the last lap disaster struck as Collard hit a kerb sending the car sideways, which cost him seven places as he came in tenth.

This leaves him 17 points behind leader Colin Turkington, ahead of the next meeting which is at Rockingham this weekend.

Collard said: “I have mixed emotions about today. Two fourth places provided solid points for the championship, but I’ve been the victim of a move by Gordon Shedden that was never on in a million years in Race Three. He pushed me off the track, which put a lot of dirt on my tyres and left me struggling for grip. Pushing hard to make up lost ground, I clipped a kerb too hard at the chicane and went off again, which has cost me a lot of points.”
