Randon And Lidsey Share Pembrey Day Two Victories


Sam Randon and Brett Lidsey have made it three winners in three Michelin Clio Cup Series races at Pembrey, the duo sharing the victories on the second day in Wales.

Round Four:

James Dorlin started the opening encounter of the day from pole position, but it proved to be a short-lived advantage for the race one winner as contact at the first corner sent his sideways.

Following more commotion at the second corner, it was Lidsey who emerged in the lead, but that soon changed as Randon stormed through on lap two.

That proved to be a crucial move as with a battle forming behind between Lidsey, Dorlin and Luke Pinder, Randon was able to break the tow and streak clear to an eleven second victory.

Dorlin briefly getting into second place on lap three, before Lidsey got back ahead on the next lap and would go on to hold the place for a large portion of the race.

Lidsey’s mirrors were full throughout though and he eventually succumbed to a charging Pinder, who snatched third from Dorlin on lap twelve before moving into second a lap later.

As Pinder and Lidsey completing the podium ahead of Dorlin, Ben Palmer and Ben Colburn completed the top six, whilst Tyler Lidsey recovered from early drama to take seventh.

In the Road Class, pole-sitter Sarah Franklin lost her lead to a fast starting Nic Harrison on the opening lap, who went on to take the win from Jack Fabby and Franklin.

Round Five:

Randon started the final race of the day from pole position and led the opening lap, but an early change for the lead saw Dorlin squeeze ahead on the second tour.

The top two edged away from third as they battled for the lead, but drama on the fourth lap saw them lose ground – Randon emerging in fourth, with Dorlin right behind.

Lidsey assumed the lead ahead of Pinder and Palmer, but those two were soon dispatched by the erstwhile top two – with Randon and Dorlin back into the podium positions by the end of lap nine.

By that point, Lidsey had established a two second lead at the head of the field and whilst his pursuers were able to chip away at it, he held on for his first win of the season.

Dorlin and Randon completed the podium whilst a late change for fourth saw Palmer get ahead of Pinder, whilst completing the Race class runners were Tyler Lidsey and Colburn.

In the Road class, Harrison held the early lead before falling back, with Fabby going on to take a second victory of the weekend ahead of Franklin.
