Daniel Harper is in good shape at the mid-season break of the 2016 Ginetta Junior Championship Rookie Cup.

The Hillsborough lad secured a sensational pair of overall podium finishes at Croft recently to extend his lead at the top of the standings.

Bouncing back in style from a difficult visit to Oulton Park a few weeks ago, Harper was in supreme form around the technical North Yorkshire circuit as he collected a vital big points haul with third and second place overall finishes as well as a Rookie Class podium hat-trick.

Those successes have given Harper a 42 point lead at the top of the Rookie Cup standings as he lies fifth overall in the championship heading into the six week summer break, with the championship returning to action at Snetterton in Norfolk on July 30/31.

“It’s been a rollercoaster first half of the season,” said Daniel. “Some of it hasn’t been too fun, like Thruxton and Oulton Park, but we’ve had some fantastic results and I’m happy with the progress we’ve made. Hopefully we can enjoy more success from Snetterton onwards.”

Now it’s a well-earned break for the young star.
