SEB Morris capped an incredible season when he was crowned the Ginetta Junior Championship winner at the weekend.

The Chester King’s School student, 15, sealed the title with two races to spare with a pair of second-placed finishes at Brands Hatch.

Morris, who is managed by Delamere-based 24 Hours of Le Mans star Andy Meyrick, said: “It’s been a great season and we’ve worked really hard for this.

“I can’t thank the team enough, they do everything so precisely and have done a fantastic job this year.

“My driver coach, Matt Shawyer, is the reason I’ve been as fast as I have and my manager, Andy Meyrick, has looked after everything off-track for me.

“It’s a proper team effort, I’m really happy we’ve done it.”

Morris made history last year when he became the youngest driver to win the Ginetta Junior Winter Championship at the tender age of 14.

Now the Liberty Properties and Legat Owen-sponsored driver has provisionally became the first of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship support series champions of 2011.

Of the 18 rounds contested so far, Morris has taken 11 race victories and 14 podiums in total – with his total domination of a hugely competitive category meaning his Hillspeed team have won back-to-back main season titles.

Morris was a denied a 12th win of the year when a post-race judicial decision relegated him to second in Saturday’s race. But that failed to wipe the smile from his face as the finish was enough to secure the championship.

Morris refused to take his foot off the gas in Sunday’s ITV4-televised race, crossing the line in second again.

Morris, who heads to Silverstone next weekend, said: “We proved our point again this weekend.

“To win the championship with races in hand shows what a strong season it’s been for us.”
