The Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge heads to Wales, for the final two rounds of the 2019 championship.

Fraser Anderson from Helensburgh took an early lead in the Championship, then Thomas Johnstone from Kettlebridge in Fife moved into the lead after Crail in June, and currently heads the points table, one point ahead of Cameron Davidson from Lesmahagow, but with the best six scores from eight to count it is Davidson who is best placed to take the 2019 title. Davidson has finished in the top 3 in every event he has contested this year, but all will be decided at Anglesey on 23rd & 24th November, when we join up with our English friends in the Formula 1000 Championship.

Thomas Johnstone can be very pleased with his debut season, since already having sealed the Novice Championship, he is in a strong position to add the Pearsons of Duns Nissan Cup in his first year of competition, and is sure to be a front-runner again next year when he rolls out his new Skoda Citigo rally car. But before that, Thomas has an important appointment, when he will attend the UK Young Rally Driver of the Year Awards at the Professional Motorsport World Expo awards in Cologne. He heads to the awards ceremony, with our best wishes, and we are sure he will fly the flag for Scotland with pride.

Currently 3rd in the championship, Jack Hall from Stirling should be able to consolidate that position in Anglesey, having had a couple of podium positions so far this year, as he has made steady progress in the championship.

Also potentially in the mix, Oliver Hunter from Ayr certainly has the speed to get among the winners, and has already won two rounds this year, but car breakdowns in the early part of the year, has all but put the championship title out of reach.

Championship Co-ordinator, Stuart Sheridan said, “It’s been an exciting season, and it’s still all to playfor in Anglesey, but although Cameron Davidson could be expected to seal the championship,motorsport can be very unpredictable at times, and nothing is guaranteed until the final flag comes down.”

Behind the leaders, there’s a tight group of Aaron Webster (Glenrothes) Erica Winning (Glasgow), Justin Gunning (Lanark), and Letisha Conn (Newtonhamilton), each of whom will be aiming to finish the season on a high, and get as far up the points table as possible.
