“Really happy with the weekend, race winner for the second time this season and some really good pace! We had a strong qualifying, then deserved a win in race one but unfortunately, we had that stolen from us. I was really pleased to bounce back in race two and get the win after some tight battles on track. It was a great points haul this weekend which will help in the championship, now we need to keep the momentum rolling into Thruxton. I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Elite Motorsport, MB Partners, Elliot Harvey & Jake Hill for all of their help this weekend!"
