Cliffe secures a one-two in Anglesey

Mulbarton racer Tristan Cliffe had an excellent weekend in the Monoposto 2000 Championship with two races at the gloriously sunny Anglesey circuit in North Wales.

For race one, Cliffe claimed pole position from his rival Jeremy Timms by 0.8 of a second, although when the race started it was Timms who took the early lead with Cliffe slotting in behind the 2008 champion.

Cliffe regained first place and they finished in that order, with Cliffe setting the fastest lap of the race, establishing a new lap record in the process.

Race two was another story - mysteriously the car developed a misfire overnight and was not co-operating fully. Somehow Cliffe managed to wrestle the poorly Dallara around the circuit and somehow claimed his fourth pole position of the year, albeit with a much smaller margin to Timms in second.

Come race time it was again the more experienced Timms who took the lead, although further down the field a startline accident between Jeremy Goodman's Ralt and Russ Giles' Reynard brought out the safety car. Cliffe tried everything he could to pass, but this time he had to settle for second place, although once again he set the fastest lap which also improved on his own existing lap record.

The next race is in a month's time at Snetterton.
