FIELD­ING HAS A FIELD DAY AS HIS RI­VALS MAKE HEAVY WORK

Motor Sport News - - Rounds - By Stephen Lick­o­r­ish

Sen­nan Field­ing hauled him­self back into ti­tle con­tention at Snetterton, tak­ing two wins as many of his ri­vals were caught up in­ci­dents.

The JHR driver emerged un­scathed from a series of ac­ci­dents that oc­curred in all the races. Field­ing won the first race de­spite hav­ing to make two safety car restarts, but points leader Max Fewtrell was among those left on the side­lines af­ter an off.

There was still cause for Car­lin cel­e­bra­tions, how­ever, as sec­ond and third for Devlin De­francesco and James Pull meant the team notched up its 800th podium.

The good news con­tin­ued in race two as the fi­nal mem­ber of Car­lin’s quar­tet, Petru Florescu, as­sumed first place in the standings af­ter tak­ing the win. The race fea­tured a crash be­tween Ar­den duo Luis Leeds and Rafael Martins at Riches when dic­ing for sec­ond, pro­mot­ing Pull and De­francesco to an all Car­lin ros­trum.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing fifth in race two, Field­ing again took a lights-to-flag vic­tory in the fi­nale, re­sist­ing pres­sure from De­francesco.

Field­ing beamed: “I couldn’t re­ally ask for much more. We showed we had great pace – we fixed a few is­sues we found dur­ing the six week break.”

The re­sults mean he’s now just 11 points be­hind Florescu in the standings, while Fewtrell picked up a third place that “soft­ens the blow” from a tough week­end.

Mean­while, it was Pull’s turn to have an in­ci­dent this time as he tan­gled with Billy Monger and Jamie Caro­line.
