DONINGTON PARK: BARC
Defending European Superkart champion Adam Kout consolidated his championship lead with a double win.
Peter Elkmann and Kout ( below) had begun to edge away from their rivals in the early laps of race one, until they were caught and split by Daniel Clark.
Kout fought back to retake second into Redgate on the next tour, before leading into the Esses on lap six.
Liam Morley made it four for the lead, before Clark fell back in fourth with brake woes. A charging Morley was closing on Kout as the flag came out.
It was a lights-to-flag win for Kout in race two, but with a three-way fight for second it was easy for the Czech to go clear. Yannick de Brabander lost his early second to Morley at the Esses on lap four. Morley then had Elkmann snapping at his heels but took second.
After taking two European podiums, Morley won both the Div 1 and F125 Open Grands Prix. Elkmann led the combined Div 1/450 race from the start, but Morley joined him in an immediate break. Having shadowed his rival for six laps, he made the decisive move at Redgate, with Stefan Malm following Elkmann to complete the podium.
Lee Harpham led for most of the 125 Open/kzs GP, but was usurped by Kirk Cattermole exiting Goddards on lap four, by which time Morley was third.
Harpham was back in front with a lap to go, but Morley dived into second at Goddards, before a repeat move on Harpham gave him title two of the day.
Jordan Ford took the final GP win in the F250s despite falling from pole to third. Gavin Bennett remained close until the last lap, with Jack Layton a solitary third and collecting more B points at the head of the MSA British Superkart Championship.
Katie Milner took her third win of the season in the Junior Saloons. She led the red-flag interrupted race from the restart, with George Sutton taking Matteo Zanetti for second on the opening lap. Oliver Wilmot had led a four-car train for fourth but lost out to Edward Moore and Ronan Pearson into the Esses on the last lap.
The second race was also red flagged just as Milner was poised to challenge Zanetti for his race-long lead.
Luke Browning was third as Sutton and Charlie Kennedy ran close behind.
Phil Hanson and Nigel Moore’s Audi R8 dominated a dull Britcar Endurance race, leading the way for almost all of the three hours. The Ferrari 458s of Leyton Clarke/simon Atkinson and Mike/anthony Wilds headed the pursuit throughout, with only the Renault RS-01 of Nick Holden/ Andrew Mckenna briefly splitting them, after Calum Lockie/david Mason’s 458 retired early.
Jonny Macgregor’s Taranis proved unbeatable in all three Britcar GT & Production races. Paul Rose briefly lost second in race one after a spin, but soon regained the place from teammate Steve Harris. It was the same 1-2-3 in race two, but with Rose retiring with a puncture and Harris with intercooler problems, Marcus Fothergill/dave Benett’s Porsche 997 and Andy Robinson’s Ford Falcon completed the race three podium. Phil Rowlands won both rounds of the F450 Challenge while Lee Harpham kept his title defence going in the F125 Open by winning both races.
