MAC­CLES­FIELD BriSCA F2 Rac­ing driver 101 Kelvyn Mar­shall be­came the BriSCA F2 World Cham­pion on Satur­day at Stafford­shire’s Hed­nes­ford Race­way.

Mar­shall took part in ten qual­i­fy­ing rounds at tracks all over the coun­try.

Points scored at those meet­ings placed him into one of two semi fi­nals which were held at Skeg­ness in Lin­colnshire.

Mar­shall won his Semi Fi­nal and this put him on the front row of the World Cham­pi­onship with 29 other com­peti­tors from the UK and the Nether­lands, as well as Ger­many.

He got a good start in the ti­tle race and gained the lead, which he held for 25 laps of the fast Hed­nes­ford track.

It capped a fine sea­son for the Macc racer – two months ago he also won the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship at Northamp­ton.

By win­ning the World Cham­pi­onship, Mar­shall has elected to take the num­ber one as his race num­ber which he will hold un­til next sea­son’s World Cham­pi­onship.

He will be rac­ing at his home track Bux­ton Race­way on Sun­day 27th Septem­ber.
