Junior Saloon Cars star at Pembrey

24 Jul 17

The British Automobile Racing Club’s latest visit to Pembrey this past weekend (22/23 July) saw the Junior Saloon Car Championship take on a starring role.

Mixed conditions battered the Welsh venue throughout the weekend however that didn’t deter those in attendance being treated to plenty of door-to-door thrills.

Heading into the weekend in the JSCC, all eyes were on Ethan Hammerton and whether he could extend his points lead over the chasing trio of teenagers as the series heads towards its crescendo.

Will Dyrdal entered the event trailing Hammerton in second place but produced a near-perfect display over both days. Having not stepped atop the podium since early May, the 17-year-old underlined his credentials with a lights-to-flag victory in race one.

Launching from fourth on the grid, Dyrdal claimed a lead he would never lose to take the chequered flag little over two seconds ahead of Sam Kirkpatrick and Hammerton.

Race two went the very much the same as the first with Dyrdal finding his way to the front and taking command. Kirkpatrick and Hammerton once again rounded out the rostrum.

Despite a small entry, the Max5 Racing Championship still saw all-out action with Paul Roddison emerging victorious in both encounters.

The Absolute Alignment Citroen C1 Challenge made its second appearance of the season too with a brace of endurance races being run.

Saturday’s four-hour thriller saw the duo of Caryl Willis and Philip Myatt take the win with the honours in the shorter two-hour race going the way of Peter Rundle, Richard Dalton and Louis Tyson.

Rounding off the action was the Welsh Racing Drivers Association, where Jason Davies and Chris Everill shared the spoils.
