Smalley sets the 4th fastest lap at the opening pre-season test
The annual Ginetta Media Day took place at the Brands Hatch Circuit as the team's and driver's in Ginetta Juniors broke cover for the official start of the 2017 season.
As the Ginetta Scholarship winner, 16 year old Adam Smalley was a driver in demand - as photographers and press respectively showed interest in the JHR Developments driver.
After the media day proceedings drew to a close, the Ginetta Juniors moved into three Official Test Sessions. The opening test session saw Smalley set the 4th fastest lap, as well as being the fastest Rookie driver overall. His transponder failed in the second session meaning no time registered.
The afternoon session saw Smalley once again classified 4th quickest - setting a time just 0.068s off the fastest lap of the day. Once again he was the fastest Rookie to cap off a very strong opening day of testing for the Scholarship winner.
The 2017 Ginetta Junior Championship kicks off at Brands Hatch, around the Indy Circuit on the 1st April - where Adam Smalley will make his car racing debut.
