HEREFORD'S Josh Young had a respectable outing at Silverstone in his first stint in the Super Mighty Minis Championship.

Young qualified eighth in the morning session and, after a tight race, managed to finish sixth in the first round.

Following the reverse grid rules on the Sunday, Young found himself on pole for the second race, but a bad start meant he could only finish seventh overall.

Young is part of the Agouti Motorsport that he helped set up with Connor O'Brien.

"Connor had to get to grips with the car after a hard testing session and struggled with mechanical difficulties in qualifying, but the lap times steadily improved throughout race one and two and Connor can go to Anglesey with a positive weekend behind him," said Young.

"The team enjoyed some fantastic results overall though.

"The two lady drivers made history, becoming the first ever women to be on the front row of a British motorsport qualifying session.

"And there wasn’t much in it, with Alice Hughes on pole and Sarah Moore a mere 0.049 sec adrift.

"With this performance, the girls really turned some heads and attracted the attention of initiatives such as Suzie Wolf’s #DareToBeDifferent and the #WomenInMotorsport campaign."

In the afternoon session, the first race saw Hughes take an impressive second place, while Moore's hopes of a podium were dashed when her race ended in the gravel.

However, the pair came back strong in race two and Moore made a storming driver from the back of the grid to finish second, just in front of team mate Alice who took third."

The championship will move to Anglesey in North Wales on the weekend of April 22 and 23.
