For the first round of the year, the Fiesta Juniors were back at Croft after the season finale in 2020.
After a long off-season, the championship kicked off on Saturday with Free Practice, with Alex Ley finishing 3rd.
Qualifying took place on Saturday, and after a hectic session with many drivers having lap times disallowed, Alex finished 2nd, his best qualifying in Fiesta Juniors so far. His lap time was only 0.001 seconds off pole!
On Sunday, in Race 1, Alex sadly did not finish due to an incident with another driver. However, he was starting on pole for Race 2, later in the afternoon, so there was still hope for a good result in the next race.
In Race 2, in extremely wet conditions with lots of standing water and many drivers having incidents, Alex finished 2nd! Resulting in his first podium in the championship.
After a weekend of ups and downs, the team is looking forward to the next round at Oulton Park.
