Despite not competing in the last round of the Championships, Harry McQuillan was proud to finish 4th overall in the ABkC Super One National Championships in Junior X30.
Harry raced with Protrain in Junior Max during 2015 and moved to the Junior X30 class for 2016. Despite not driving until the first round, Harry immediately took to the class and showed fantastic pace from the start. Success throughout the year produced this wonderful result for a great driver.
The final round of the Championship was at the Formula One level PF International circuit with its modern facilities and demanding track layout. Protrain were represented by Reggie Duhy, just out of cadets and fresh from victory in one of his first Junior X30 races at the famous Midland Championships. Reggie continued his rapid pace from that race meeting. After a confusing timed qualifying when after dominating practice by almost .5s, Reggie only qualified 7th. An adjustment in tyre pressures soon rectified Reggie's pace and throughout the meeting he set fastest lap, after fastest lap to show his tremendous ability. Finishing in the top three all the time, only nose penalties prevented this exciting Junior driver from victory in his first National Championship X30 meeting.
Team Manager Jason Dredge said "Reggie was superb all weekend and deserved victory, but he will bounce back and we look forward to showing the karting world what this talented driver has to offer".
Reggie looks forwrad to the LGM at PF International this weekend.
