Castle Combe, April 3rd 2013

The opening round of a new championship!

 

A big thank you to everyone who came down to Castle Combe and supported the inaugural rounds of the 2013 BRSCC Mazda MX5 SuperCup. I know it was cold but at least it wasn’t raining!

Matthew Davies and Andrew Clarkson certainly entertained us in both races. In Race 1 the pair of drivers had a tightly fought battle for the lead, swapping positions in each of the first 7 laps. Davies then managed to hang onto the lead for the next 3 laps until eventually Clarkson found a way past and was able to retain the lead until the end of the race. Remarkably neither driver was able to gain a lead of more than half a second throughout the entire race!

Race 2 saw Davies take the spoils after managing to pull a slight gap from the chasing cars. Clarkson was pushed hard for the second podium spot by Mike Comber, who took the place but then allowed Clarkson back into second following a small mistake.  I see further battles between these drivers throughout the rest of the season.
