Dan Zelos once again belied his rookie status as the fiercely-contested 2014 Ginetta Junior Championship travelled to Croft, tallying a third podium finish of what has so far been a remarkable maiden car racing campaign.

The Norfolk ace claimed sixth on the race one grid – but he was tagged into an early spin that he had to settle for a recovery drive to 13th, with an apology from his assailant.

Sunday’s race saw Dereham-based Zelos secure an excellent podium – his third from just 10 races – lifting the 16-year-old Northgate High School student to joint-fifth in the championship and tied for top rookie honours, heading into the summer break. That’s two points adrift of fourth overall and less than a victory shy of second.

“This is way beyond what I had been hoping for,” said Zelos, with the next round at Snetterton next month. “Being my home circuit, that will be my most important weekend of the season so far.”

  • We have been to see Dan at Alton Park recently and what a fab day we had meeting and cheering on this up and coming very talented rookie driver. We wish him all the best for the future and are looking forward to seeing him back on the podium at Snetterton in August. Come on Dan you can do it!
