Trio of win­ners but Fewtrell is hap­pi­est Ford MSA For­mula

Motor Sport News - - Btcc Report: Donington Park - By Stephen Lick­o­r­ish

Alex Quinn, Sen­nan Field­ing and Max Fewtrell shared the spoils at Doning­ton, but it was Fewtrell who was hap­pi­est af­ter claim­ing the points lead.

De­spite his lack of ex­pe­ri­ence, and a hail­storm just be­fore the start of the opener, Fortec’s Quinn made a good start from pole and led Ar­den’s Luis Leeds and Fewtrell.

But just as Quinn was com­ing un­der in­creas­ing pres­sure, the red flag was thrown with Pa­trik Matthiesen off at Cop­pice.

Jamie Caro­line could have fea­tured af­ter a re­mark­able open­ing lap dur­ing which he climbed from 15th to sixth. But his progress was short­lived as he went off at Redgate on lap two and fin­ished eighth.

JHR’S Field­ing started on pole for the mid­dle race and led through­out de­spite a safety car, win­ning from Car­lin duo Petru Florescu and Fewtrell.

“I thought ‘oh no’ when the safety car came out but I man­aged to nail the restart,” Field­ing en­thused.

Fewtrell rounded off a strong week­end with his maiden vic­tory in the fi­nale, hold­ing off Leeds and Ross Martin.

“I knew I needed to make a good start,” said Fewtrell, “and when I did I wanted the race to end as soon as it started [to se­cure his first win].”
