Lotus Cup winner Jon Walker’s relief as rival suffers late breakdown

Lotus Cup winner Jon Walker was relieved to see rival Jamie Stanley pull off on the final lap, with a broken driveshaft, just as his lead was under threat.

Walker's race lead had been erased due to a late safety car, allowing Stanley his chance to mount a challenge before a mechanical problem intervened.

The Norwich pairing of Dave Carr/Mark Fullalove had a long mid race stoppage which ruined their race.

The opening Lotus Elise Trophy race produced a fine tussle between Luigi Mazza and Adam Gore. It was Gore who led the opening laps, only for Mazza to fight past but lose victory on the final lap in the closest of finishes.

A storming start in race two underpinned Mazza's race two victory while Craig Denman narrowly missed out on the podium after starting from last place while Terrington St Clement racer Seth Walpole finished both races in 15th place.
