Green picks up the final trophy accolade in last outing of the 2016 season
Organiser: BRISCA When: November 12 Starters: 65
Nigel Green came close to winning the National Series in his first full year in BRISCA F1 but he was narrowly beaten into second place by Rob Speak.
However Green finished the season off by winning his third final of the year and vowed to come back even stronger next year.
Pete Bartrum, Courtney Witts and Harry Steward battled for the early lead before Ashley England moved ahead. Further back in the pack, Green was making his move and, after a couple of yellow flags bunched the field up, he barged his way into a racewinning lead with just under five laps remaining. England held on for second with Lee Fairhurst clinging third in the closing stages.
“This might be the last time I use this car,” said Green. “I am planning on building a new car for Tarmac next season. I have a few ideas I would like to try out.
“I don’t think I would have caught England if the yellows flag had not come out. They worked in my favour. I came along tonight to support this race that is in the memory of the late Dave Leonard. I heard so much about the work he did, especially for the younger drivers and, with the Under 25s event at this meeting too, I wanted to race in his memory.” Result 1 Nigel Green; 2 Ashley England; 3 Lee Fairhurst; 4 Frankie Wainman Jr; 5 Neil Hooper; 6 Danny Wainman; 7 Bradley Harrison; 8 Scott Davids; 9 Mick Sworder; 10 Richard Howarth.
