Another podium for Declan Jones

“I am really looking forward to my next outing in the Ginetta G50s,” Declan continued. “This is another learning year for me, and I have to adjust to jumping from a modern car to an older one. Nevertheless I want to go into my next Ginetta GT Supercup weekend like I did at Oulton Park. I want to impress. My aim is to go in and hopefully get my first win in the Ginettas.”

Declan's dad and manager, Kelvin Jones meanwhile was delighted with his son's form at Dijon.

“What can I say? He was very impressive all weekend,” Kelvin added. “The longest race he had ever done before was 20 laps in the Ginettas and now he has done a 1 hour 20 minute stint on a very demanding circuit and when he got out of the car he was still very fresh. It was a mega drive - one of the best I have ever seen him do.

“All-in-all it was a good team effort and Dec and Alain worked really well together. For us to get P6 overall and obviously third in Prototypes and first in Super 2000 was fantastic.

“What did it for me, however, was that every lap Dec did was within a second and he was constantly banging in consistent laps and in a 2 hour race that is where you can make up so much time. I was very impressed. It was great over the tannoy system too as all you could hear was 'Declan Jones magnifique, magnifique!'”
