With Joe Girling taking a mid season break from racing, the Courtenay Sport Astra VXR that we ran for Joe was in the hands of Jake Giddings for the Snetterton, Thruxton and Rockingham rounds.
On his debut at Snetterton, Clio Cup racer Giddings, placed with three third place podium finishes over the weekend. A fantastic start in this series.
Two weeks later, Thruxton saw Giddings take another third place and his maiden win in the championship in the final race of the weekend. Sadly the first race was a non finish due to a driveshaft failure.
Rockingham also saw a third and a fourth place over the weekend, and another non finish due to a coming together with another car.
