Incidents and accidents halt Upwell ace’s progress in the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup
LUCKLESS motorsport star Jake Giddings was blighted by incident and accident at the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup.
The Upwell ace could only finish 17th in the first race at Norfolk’s Snetterton circuit, after a jack became wedged under his car in the final minutes of qualifying.
This meant he exited the pit lane too late and left him 12th on the grid. In the race itself, he was involved in an incident with another driver who was later penalised by the stewards.
Giddings started seventh in the second race after the officials had dished out penalties to several competitors for some robust driving.
The teenager’s rapid early progress was halted by a slow-moving car in front, leaving him with an eighth placed finish.
