Upwell racer Jake Giddings lifts touring car trophy after triple triumph

UPWELL racer Jake Giddings expressed his delight after a triple triumph saw him lift the Production Touring Car Trophy.

The 17-year-old missed the practice sessions at the Croft circuit but still managed to qualify in third place.

He drove his Astra to a comfortable victory in the first race, dominating the field despite a gearbox issue in the closing stages.

Tricky conditions set in for race two but Giddings relished the challenge, clocking the fastest lap on his way to a seven-second win.

And a stunning competition was sealed in the final race as the teenage talent sped past his rivals to complete a trio of triumphs.

Giddings said: “I am so happy to come to the Croft, which is a circuit I really like, and to take all three wins is brilliant.”
