K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series: Race 1

Jeff Humphries got off the line quickly in the opening K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series race but went sideways at Redgate allowing Matt Fincham and Patrick Fletcher through.  On the fourth circuit Fincham was caught out by the slippery track and Fletcher took the lead.  The pair were nose-to-tail in the closing stages with Fincham overhauling the former Stock Hatch champion with 50 metres to go.  Ed Pead, who won 17 times in the Clio Cup, started from the back and clawed him way up into the top five on the final lap.

K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series : Race 1

Patrick Fletcher and Matt Fincham beat 2014 debutee Trevor Gregory off of the line in the opening K-Tec Racing Clio 182 Series battle.  Fletcher held off attacks from Fincham, Gregory and Mark Hammersley to win in his heavy Clio.  When Fincham missed a gear, it allowed Gregory to take second.  However, he flat-spotted his front left tyre which forced him into retirement.  This left Hammersley to chase Fletcher with Fincham beating Martin Ward to third. Trevor’s Father Bill ran in a strong fifth before car issues gifted the position to Matt Holtom who claimed his best car racing finish.

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.
