Canterbury based Rallycross driver Tristan Ovenden headed to his home circuit of Lydden Hill for Round 7 of the MSA Toyo Tires British Rallycross championship. Making its second visit of the year.

The Goody Demolition backed driver went into the bank holiday feature looking to extend his 22-point lead over his nearest rival. Ovenden set about the business in hand right from the first green light recording fastest times in all three qualifying sessions. His faultless day continued in the semi-final and ultimately the final in lights to flag wins from a comfortable pole position.

This extends the strangle hold that Ovenden has over the championship. He is now 25 points clear at the top of the table with only two more rounds left. He will head to Pembrey in South Wales for the penultimate round looking to extend the lead he has.

It was a really good performance from the team. Despite having to change a gearbox in our other car, we still kept the Clio V6 right on top form all day. A huge thanks to them for their continued dedication.” commented Ovenden.
