ODIHAM’S young racing star Louis Foster will be looking for more glory at Thruxton this weekend.

The teenager turned in a stunning drive to record his maiden win in the Ginette Junior Championship at the last round at Donington Park.

The 14-year-old started the final race of the weekend from fourth on the grid and was quickly up to third.

He then made the most of the first two dicing with each other, as he took the lead and had double winner from the weekend Luke Browning right on his tail.

From then on he drove faultlessly to take his first overall victory in the series and his fifth straight rookie win.

The young Odiham driver started the weekend well with a strong performance in pre-event testing, where he came close to topping the times at the wheel of his Elite Motorsport-run car.

The Lord Wandsworth College student mastered tricky wet conditions when qualifying arrived on Saturday morning to secure third on the grid for the opening nine-lap encounter.

He finished his first outing of the weekend coming second for his first podium of the weekend.

The second race of the weekend would be held on a drier circuit but with plenty of damp patches that could catch out anyone who wasn’t fully focused on the job at hand.

Although he made a good start when the lights went out, Louis would lose places when forced wide and slipped back to sixth place but it didn’t take long for him to start working his way back up the order.

Picking off the drivers ahead, he was back into the top three by the half way stage and then brought his car to the finish for another podium finish and another rookie class win.

The final race was his best as he collected his first victory.

Foster said: “It’s been a fantastic weekend and I’m delighted to end it with my first overall win, The final race, it was just crazy from start to finish.

“In the early stages I wasn’t sure that we had the pace in the car but I knuckled down and got stuck in. When I got to the front, I knew it wouldn’t be easy to keep Luke behind as we broke away from the chasing pack, and when he did manage to make a move for the lead, it was vital I fought back straightaway.

He added: “When I got back into the lead for a second time, I wasn’t going to lose it and I’m over the moon to have taken the victory. I have to give huge thanks to everyone in the Elite Motorsport team, and my sponsors Vans Direct, Wake Nutrition and Carwow as I wouldn’t be able to do it without their support."
