Snetterton endurance race report
Superior strategy allowed Bradley Smith and team-mate Lewis Plato to overcome James Abbott in the Radical Endurance race at Snetterton on Saturday.
When Smith took over from Plato the team bolted on new left-side tyres, and while it cost them 18 seconds to their rival, Smith was able to steadily eat into Abbott's advantage and take victory away from the Peterborough racer.
A late surge by Uggeshal's Tom Ashton secured third place for the Suffolk racer and Peter Belshaw at the expense of their team-mates, Alex Kapadia/Tom Jordan, who were suffering from a leaking head gasket.
Norwich's Steve Quick was unclassified after an early nose damaging incident at Murrays required a replacement.
Having recovered from a poor start Norwich's Brian Bransom was up to second place in the opening saloon car event until a power steering failure saw him drop down the order.
