BRANDS HATCH GP
With everything at stake on this final meeting of the Championship Jac had a seamless practice day on the Friday with great pace. On the Saturday Qualifying he again managed to top the Am times and another pole was his, with his main rival Colin White second on the grid and Bearne third.
Jac dropped down the field at the start after his Xentek Motorsport teammate Minshaw ended up in the gravel at Druids which brought about the safety car.
On the restart, Colin White kept birthday boy Perez between himself and Jac and as racing continued, White crept further up the Pro field, after battling with Pros Baker and Somerfield. Jac drove a measured race and settled for the points tally for second in class with Bearne finishing third.
It was a similar story in the second race in the Am class. Colin White led throughout the 15 lap race with Jac circulating just behind him in second place. It was another very mature drive by the Xentek Motorsport driver who with this second place finish made sure that he won the Am Class Championship with a race in hand.
Things didn’t go completely according to plan for newly crowned Am Class champion Jac Constable in the final race of the year. As he was making his way through the field he was unwittingly taken out by one of the pro drivers whose error put Jac in the gravel and brought about the safety car. A disappointing finish to a great year but much to be admired.
Having picked up the Am Class lead following Constable’s retirement, White had enjoyed some great racing with Bearne and Minshaw. Damage on White’s car hampered him in the last few laps, but he hung on by the skin of his teeth to take the class win from Minshaw and Bearne.
The Am Class season finished with Jac Constable as Am Class Champion with Colin White second and Jack Minshaw third.
The Pro Class Championship was won by Callum Pointon whose consistency throughout the year enabled him to accumulate his impressive points tally. Ben Green had been quick all season posting the highest number of Class wins and finished a creditable second behind Pointon. George Gamble showed his class throughout the year and a third place in the Pro Class Championship.
A huge thanks to all the boys and girls at Xentek Motorsport and to all of Jac's sponsors, friends and family who have helped and supported his efforts throughout the 2017 race season.Back to News
