Two vic­to­ries for de­fend­ing cham­pion Steven Fer­gu­son brought him closer to Hewi­son Au­totest points leader Paul Mooney, who scored a sec­ond and a third place.

The pair now have three wins apiece from the six rounds held. Mooney had three penal­ties on Satur­day and failed a test on day two, while a bro­ken CV joint cost Fer­gu­son a 20s max­i­mum on Sun­day but he re­cov­ered well to nar­rowly beat David Thomp­son’s Nova by 0.6s.

Guy Fos­ter’s Mini Spe­cial was fourth over­all each time, with Tom De­vaney and Timmy Lynch shar­ing the sports car hon­ours.
