The K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series once again provided a couple of thrilling races with ex-Stock Hatch racers to the fore. ‚ In the first race Jeff Humphries took a convincing lead from his pole position. ‚ Local man Martin Ward, who had a disastrous weekend at Silverstone, was able to hold off Matt Fincham despite several challenges throughout the course of the race.‚ Ben Seybold moved ahead of Patrick Fletcher in the opening stages of the race for fourth position and was always in touching distance of the podium positions but was never able to make it into the top three.‚ Fletcher also fell behind Mark Hammersley on the seventh lap of the race and therefore only managed to finish in sixth position.
The second race saw an equally close race.‚ Fletcher took the lead off the line ahead of Fincham and had to‚ defend hard as Fincham tried to move ahead of him whenever possible.‚ The red flags flew on the sixth lap of the race as George Williams had an engine failure and Matt Holtom and Seybold had a coming together on the exit of Nelson. ‚ A short four lap restart was in store and Fincham beat Fletcher away and was able to stay ahead of him to take his first victory of the season; making it three different winners in four races this season.
Fletcher and Ward completed the podium and both finished within a second of the winner.‚ Hammersley came home with another strong result in fourth ahead of series debutant Matt Digby.‚ Tony Hobson completed the top six with his best result ahead of Daniel Spencer and Martin Bentley.
