The British Racing and Sports Car Club meeting at Donington Park provided some great entertainment, despite some inclement weather. Short oval specialist Martin Heath, from Burton-on-Trent, was having a first Excool OSS outing in his recently acquired Radical SR3 at the BRSCC meeting. Martin had a great duel with the more experienced Roland Lewis (Jade 3) and looked set to gain the place before a late race spin at the chicane. He recovered to close to within 3 seconds of Lewis and take second in class. Martin claimed a top ten finish (third in class) in the following day’s race and although frustrated by that spin, was delighted with the car’s performance. Mike Jenvey and Duncan Williams shared the overall honours.
Richard Avery won the first of three Porsche Championship races, 3.9 seconds ahead of Andrew Hack. Avery completed the double the following day but then beached his Boxster in the Redgate gravel at the first turn of race 3 as Hack took the win.
Heavy rain on Saturday afternoon stopped racing altogether for half an hour and forced the single-seat Formula Jedi race to be postponed until later in the day. It was still damp as series leader Paul Butcher made the best of the conditions to win race one while 2013 champion Lee Morgan took race two. Former Mk1 MX-5 champion Jonathan Greensmith took his maiden MX-5 Supercup victory in the wet and recovered to third (behind James Blake-Baldwin and Jack Harding) following a first lap spin in race two. Tom Roche completed a double in the Mazda MX5 Championship.
