Declan Jones claims maiden win at Silverstone

Declan now heads to Brands Hatch in two weeks time (October 20-21) for the final Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup round of the year and the event there is a triple header with three races on the bill.

“I am really looking forward to it. I like Brands Hatch. It is like a big brother to Oulton Park in a way and they are my two favourite tracks. I will be aiming to try and build on what we did at Silverstone. I can't wait,” Declan added.

Declan's dad and manager, Kelvin Jones meanwhile was over-the-moon to see his son bounce back from the driveshaft failure in qualifying and still come through to break his G50 winners duck.

“Declan just keeps getting better and better,” Kelvin continued. “We are so pleased and these results are coming at a crucial time as we plan for 2013.

“It is also worth pointing out this is only Dec's fourth outing in the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup and for him to already be achieving what he has, including of course taking the G50 class win on Sunday, is really remarkable. I am very proud and we will be hoping for more of the same at Brands.”
