Clio 182 Series: Round 2: Snetterton Race Report

The K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series once again provided a couple of thrilling races with ex-Stock Hatch racers to the fore.

In the first race Jeff Humphries took a convincing lead from his pole position.  Local man Martin Ward, who had a disastrous weekend at Silverstone, was able to hold off Matt Fincham despite several challenges throughout the course of the race.

Ben Seybold moved ahead of Patrick Fletcher in the opening stages of the race for fourth position and was always in touching distance of the podium positions but was never able to make it into the top three.  Fletcher also fell behind Mark Hammersley on the seventh lap of the race and therefore only managed to finish in sixth position.


Clio 182 Series: Round 1: Silverstone Race Report

The inaugural round of the new for 2014 K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series provided the two of the best races of the day with ex-Stock Hatch champions Patrick Fletcher and Jeff Humphries fighting hard to take the first victories.

Mark Armstrong, who put his Clio on pole position for both races, was unable to compete in either race due to an engine failure in qualifying which meant that Caterham graduate Dan Livingstone was on a lonely front row.

A storming start from the outside of the second row put 2011 Stock Hatch champion, Patrick Fletcher into the lead at Copse.  He pulled clear of the pack by a full second on the first lap ahead of Mark Hammersley and Livingstone.  However, it was Jeff Humphries who started in sixth that would work his way up into second place by lap three as he prepared to hunt down Fletcher.  Humphries, who won the Stock Hatch title in 2009, whittled down a two second gap to challenge Fletcher but was unable to find a way ahead of him.
