Joe Porter secured his maiden Zig Zag Lighting Heritage Formula Ford championship victory in the last race of the season at Donington Park in dominant fashion.
Porter took the lead from race one winner Tom Brown after Brown went off towards the end of the first lap, losing around 15 seconds and dropping down to eighth.
This allowed Porter to focus on building a gap to second-place Jaap Blijleven, which he was able to do with relative ease.
The gap as Porter crossed the line at the end of the race was over 11 seconds, with Blijleven hanging onto second with an 8.741s gap to the recovering Brown.
Brown was flying as he attempted to recover his lost positions, setting the eventual fastest lap of the race with a 1m34.412s on the final lap to salvage the final step on the podium.
Fourth was taken with another strong drive by Heritage FF1600 rookie Matt Bedford in his Mondiale, with Nick Barnes rounding out the top five in his Swift machine.
Tom Roark was the last of the drivers to finish within one minute of Porter after coming home in sixth, while Oliver Chapman managed to secure seventh in his PRS car.
Simon Davey, Colin Williams and Ian Fernihough closed out the top 10 in eighth, ninth and 10th respectively.
Matt de Rozarieux retired early on after running wide and getting stuck in the gravel at Old Hairpin, while Scott Guthrie’s first race troubles were compounded after he spun at Old Hairpin and lost significant ground to finish a lap down in 13th.
