MOTORSPORT: Fergus hits back after slip
5:05pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Sport
Fergus Walkinshaw bounced back from a slow start to deliver one of his best performances of the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup season at Knock-hill.
The 22-year-old made an unscheduled pit stop after runnning wide in race one, dropping down to 15th place.
But Walkinshaw, who lives in Chipping Norton, responded in the other races to drive off with a sixth and a seventh place, earning 40 points.
He said: “The FW Motor-sport crew did a fantastic job; we knew the car was strong while I love racing at Knockhill.
“These results give the team the boost we all so badly needed.
“It’s onwards and upwards from here and we’ll be aiming to continue our top six form at Rockingham.”
1 T Ingram 617pts, 2 C Breeze 488, 3 M Nicoll-Jones 396, 4 M Davies 374, 5 P Massot 348, 6 R Boston 333, 7 A Watson 272, 8 J Orton 264, 9 C Boardley 252, 10 F Walkinshaw 208.
