CLACTON racer Jesse Chamberlain competed in the sixth round of the GT5 Challenge, at Snetterton, in Norfolk.

For the final time this season, the event once again supported the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

The weekend consisted of two races held over 12 laps - one on Saturday and the other on Sunday.

Chamberlain took part in qualifying on the Sunday, competing for Xentek Motorsport, placing his car 22nd on the grid for the first race and 19th for the second.

As race one got underway, he had a good start and was up to 16th place by lap two.

However, his progress was halted as the red flag came out due to an incident involving three cars.

The race was restarted with the grid start positions based on the driver’s position prior to the red flag.

As the restart, consisting of eight laps, got underway, Chamberlain started to chase down those ahead.

By the end of the first lap, he had moved up to 12th place and was battling with those around him.

Between laps two and six, he moved down the order to 15th and fought his way back to 13th place.

Lap seven saw him lose a place to Josh Steed.

Now running in 14th, he tried to regain the place to no avail as he took the chequered flag.

Once again, Chamberlain had a good start as race two got underway on Sunday and was soon up into 16th place.

By lap five, he had moved up into 13th place.

As the race progressed, he started to slip back through the field as his tyres started to wear and crossed the line in 22nd place.

He will next be in action in September at Donington Park, in support of the British GT Championship.
