Harry McQuillan Stars in Super 1 Junior X30 at GYG

Leading until the last corner with a lap to go Harry almost secured his maiden S1 victory at the GYG circuit in North Wales.

The second round of the Super One National Championships was held at the flowing North Wales circuit.  Protrain were represented by Harry McQuillan and Charlie Turner in Junior and Senior X30.

Testing had gone well the week before and the team were looking forward to a successful weekend.  This was confirmed with third for both drivers in timed practice.  The heats continued in the same vain with both drivers finishing third and achieving grid 3 for the first final.

Harry was out first and had a brilliant race.  From third Harry quickly moved into second and set about taking the lead.  This he did at the end of the main straight.  Leading for most of the race Harry lost the lead on the last but one lap to gain a great second place only to be penalised for a slightly moved front bumper.  10th was definitely not what he deserved after leading and setting fastest lap.

The second final saw a determined Harry, after a starting incident dropped him to 13th, Harry set about demolishing the field.  Unfortunately by the time he got into second the leader had a 4 second lead but Harry still managed to drop this to ½ second by the finish, a great drive with once again fastest lap.

Charlie had incidents in his finals but was always well on the pace and produced great 6th and 4th finishes to maintain his championship push.
