Senna Proctor secures unassailable lead in Jack Sears Trophy

Senna Proctor has provisionally secured the Jack Sears Trophy title after attaining an unassailable lead in the rookie category at Silverstone.

The Power Maxed Racing driver has once again enjoyed another stellar weekend at the Northamptonshire circuit so far, wrapping up the title in the opening race of the day.

With four races now left to run, Proctor’s nearest challenger, Ant Whorton-Eales, is now too far behind to overhaul the teenager.

Barring any penalties/ points deductions in the remaining rounds of the 2017 season, the 19-year-old will lift the coveted title at Brands Hatch GP in two weeks time.

Debuting alongside Tom Chilton to spearhead Vauxhall’s return to the series this year, Proctor has emerged as one to watch as the season has progressed – taking a best overall finish of seventh on two occasions.

Speaking to BTCC Crazy on the achievement, Proctor said: “It is great to get it wrapped up before the final three races. There is obviously still a long way to go with the car but we have made progress ever since we first hit the track.

“This is what we set out to do with it being the main goal at the start of the season. It has been very competitive amongst the rookies this season so I’m over the moon to come away with the win.

“We can’t dwell too much though as it is onwards and upwards to next year and making sure we build on this success.”

Proctor adds his name to an illustrious list of winners of the Jack Sears Trophy that include Ashley Sutton and Josh Cook, both of whom have scooped the crown in the last two years under the current format.
