Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport All The Week’s Action... -

Gideon Cress­well claimed his sec­ond podium in suc­ces­sive meet­ings in the Mini-Chal­lenge Cooper Class Cham­pi­onship, at Sil­ver­stone on Sun­day.

The Great Chart driver re­peated his third-place last time out at Cas­tle Combe in race two, achiev­ing two fifth places in race one and three at Sil­ver­stone.

He said: “I was pleased and could have won it af­ter be­ing in­volved in a five-car bat­tle and fin­ish­ing only a sec­ond be­hind the win­ner.

“The car felt a lot bet­ter than in pre­vi­ous races but I still feel there is a lot more to come.”

Cress­well is hop­ing to at­tract more spon­sors to help fi­nance his rac­ing, having re­turned to the sport last year af­ter a decade away.

He said: “I fund my­self at the mo­ment and my com­pet­i­tive in­stinct gets me through. I know I have just got to get out and do it.”
