Declan Jones becomes one of the youngest ever British GT winners

Declan will now continue his first season in the 2013 Avon Tyres British GT Championship when he heads to Rockingham next month for round two (May 5-6) and the youngster can't wait to get back behind the wheel of his Ginetta GT4.

Declan's dad and manager, Kelvin Jones meanwhile couldn't hide his delight: “Declan was just faultless all weekend. Every session he was fastest and not only that, he absolutely annihilated the competition,” Kelvin continued.

“His pole position time on Saturday was pretty much the same as last year, but what makes it more remarkable is that we were carrying an extra 150 kilos in lead.

“Then today to get two wins straight out and two fastest laps and for Dec to become the one of the youngster-ever British GT winners is also very special. Everybody has noticed him this weekend. We've set the bar high and will be keen now to continue in a similar vein at Rockingham.”
