Starting the season off at Brands Hatch, the new G56 Ginetta driven by James was looking sharp and sounding like a beast.
With the fastest qualifying time James started on Pole for Race 1 on the Saturday, which he led from start to finish. He enjoyed his drive immensely, taking the chequered flag for a G56 class win for the first race of the season.
It was much the same on Sunday where he started Race 2 on pole and led from start to finish again. He then pulled out the 6-ball so with reverse grid he started as P6 on Race 3. On wet tyres, off they went in heavy rain, but James soon grabbed a couple of places down Paddock Hill before Druids on lap one. The rain continued and James had soon worked his way to the front, where he stayed. A safety car was deployed for a few laps due to a spin out but once that pulled in to the pots James continued at the front until the end of the race.
An excellent start to the season, with James winning all three races to take a healthy lead in the championship.
