ALFIE Grendall has maintained his lead in the Junior American Cup Car Racing Championship on October 3 at the Birmingham Wheels Raceway.

With storm Alex gripping the UK, round 5 of the Junior American Cup Car championship took place under very wet and miserable conditions which really tested the driving skills of the young racers.

Alfie, who came away from the final with a second place, said: “It was a good day today despite the tricky conditions and everyone did very well to keep it on track and not have too many incidents.

“I have come away with two trophies and some good points, and am still leading the championship with two rounds to go, so am pleased overall.”

Alfie takes his lead into the next round of the 2020 championship on October 17.
