Matt Cowley won a red-flagged Walter Hayes Trophy Last Chance race at Silverstone, ahead of Josh Fisher and Sebastian Job.
Cowley (Van Diemen JL013) took the lead at Becketts on the second of eight laps, passing Jack Kemp’s Ray GR07, and was never challenged thereafter.
Van Diemen drivers Fisher and Job, who finished one-two in this morning’s Progression Race, made storming progress from the back end of the 36-car grid to round off the podium.
They were locked together for the final few laps and finished just two tenths apart, ahead of Peter Gillespie (Spectrum 011C) and Kemp.
Cowley’s 4.2s winning margin was confirmed with a red flag two laps from the finish, as a collision at Luffield between Pascal Monbaron, Westie Mitchell- who had started on the front row in his Merlyn Mk20- and Joe Porter left all three cars stranded, one with a missing wheel.
Sam Street (Swift 92F) won a tight Class C battle, taking sixth overall, ahead of the Mondiale of Conor Murphy and Nicolas Beloou’s Van Diemen.
Rick Morris comfortably won Class H in his Royale RP29- ninth overall- and Paul Barnes rounded out the top ten in his Swift SC92.
Mark Armstrong (Van Diemen RF80) had a good scrap with Gaius Ghinn’s Zues ZR1 for second and third in Class H, finishing 15th and 16th in the overall order.
Having finished third in the Progression Race, Flashman Finneran was making progress through the order before spinning his Van Diemen at Brooklands on lap five. He was classified 24th, putting him out of the event.
