Greensmith, 17, who hails from Manchester, and co-driver Carl Williamson dominated the class from the start of the race.
By the end of the first day they were leading by more than three minutes, and lying 11th overall.
Day two saw the crew extend their advantage to more than five minutes, and go up to eighth overall.
It was the first time a new team had won the class on their first outing.
