It was Jamie Orton who led the way in both races challenged both times by Paul Wilson, particularly so in race two with the final turn in to the straight seeing both drivers with a chance to win.

In both races Mark Shaw demonstrated that he had winning pace with fastest lap in race one and working with Simon Young in race two was close to chasing down the leading pair. Had the race not ended just before the expected 30 minute duration both Young & Shaw would have been in contention with the leading duo.

Setup tips

Ride height, camber and weight have defined limits across the championships. From checking cars that come to us for setups we are finding that particularly for new Academy cars the ride height can settle after race use. This illustrates the importance of checking ride height at the circuit before qualifying or racing on track. A similar consideration applies to weight as the circuit scales (right or wrong) apply on the day.
