Croft Race Report

The K‐Tec Racing Clio 182s bought a strong 27 car field to North Yorkshire for rounds 3 & 4 of the championship, after a busy 15 minute practice session held in bright sunshine, the top 10 were covered by less than 2 seconds with Patrick Fletcher taking pole position by half a second from Andrew Tibbs.  Former TOCA package star (in Ginetta Juniors and Clio 197s) Aaron Williamson was next up in a one off outing whilst George Williams took a career best fourth.

Round 3

In race one, Fletcher was in dominant form taking a comfortable lights‐to‐flag victory after making an early break from the squabbling pack. After losing out at the start Andrew Tibbs snatched second on lap five and was able to hold off series newcomer Williamson for the rest of the race.  Matt Digby, the ever consistent Phillip Wright and Andrew Harding completed the top 6.  George Williams lost out after an early race incident eventually finishing well down in the pack.

Round 4

In the second encounter Tibbs beat Fletcher off of the line but was never able to establish a gap.  Williamson moved ahead of Fletcher on lap seven to challenge for the lead but Tibbs produced a fabulous defensive drive to take the win by a scant quarter of a second.  Fletcher kept hold of third from Matt Digby with Brands winner James Bark and Phillip Wright trailing by a further couple of seconds.  Williams had some recompense for his race one troubles,
recovering to finish seventh.
