Fielding triumphs in incredible race Ford MSA Formula
It’s amazing what a difference a bit of rain can make. Drizzle before the start of the second Ford MSA Formula race, along with a partially reversed grid, proved to be the perfect recipe for a thriller.
The drivers scrambled around on slicks on a greasy track to start with but as the rain intensified the red flag was thrown.
This allowed everyone to change to wets and set up an eight-minute dash. Arden’s Rafael Martins initially led but it wasn’t long before he slipped down the order as Jamie Caroline (Jamun), James Pull (Carlin) and Sennan Fielding (JHR) came to the fore.
The trio battled relentlessly and went three abreast across the pit straight, with Caroline and Pull making contact – damaging Caroline’s front wing – allowing Fielding to claim the advantage.he was able to fend off Caroline and Pull to the flag.
“That was fun and hectic,” smiled Fielding. “I’m really happy to win but I don’t think anybody knew what was happening!”
The other two dry contests were dull in comparison. Carlin’s Petru Florescu scored lights-to-flag victories in both, from team-mate Max Fewtrell in the first and Luis Leeds in the finale to take the points lead.
