Jack James has been crowned this year’s winner of the Junior Saloon Car Championship Scholarship, winning a fully-funded season in the popular one-make category for 2022.
Taking place at Croft Circuit on Saturday 19th February, James beat no less than 28 other aspiring teenagers to win a career-starting prize worth more than £30,000.
Over the course of the day, the North Yorkshire venue saw competitors take part in a pitstop challenge, fitness challenge, autotest challenge, media presentation and driving assessment as an esteemed judging panel whittled down the contenders.
Following in the footsteps of former Scholarship winners Scott McIntyre, Harry Rice and Chloe Grant – last year’s victor – the four-time Rye House GT Cup vice-champion emerged as one of the leading lights throughout the competition.
James will take his place on the grid for the opening rounds of the 2022 Junior Saloon Car Championship campaign on the weekend of March 26/27 around the Silverstone International circuit.
