SEB Morris is on the brink of claiming this year’s Ginetta Junior Championship after winning his 11th race of the season at Rockingham.
The 15-year-old King’s School Chester pupil took victory and a fourth place in the double header at the Northamptonshire circuit to stretch his already-sizeable lead at the top of the standings to 131 points.
Even with the complication of having to drop his two worst scores of the season because of the championship’s points system, the results mean Morris is likely to wrap up the title in two weeks time in the penultimate races of the 2011 campaign at Brands Hatch.
The Marford-based ace put in two more impressive performances over the weekend.
In Saturday’s opener, he enjoyed a close-fought battle at the front to take the chequered flag as title rival George Gamble crashed out.
In Sunday’s race Morris was punted off track on lap one, but a stirring recovery saw him pass eight cars in seven laps to finish fourth.
Morris said: “Everything went swimmingly really, the win in the first race gave me a lot of confidence and although it was quite frustrating to miss out on fighting for another win in race two, I did enjoy coming back through the order.
“We’ve had two more great results and although I couldn’t quite claim the title, hopefully we can take it at Brands.”
