Argenti Motorsport’s Casper Stevenson scored yet another podium and more importantly, another win at Croft to bring himself into the title picture with Zak O’Sullivan who finished second ahead of current series leader Luke Browning.
Casper Stevenson got the hole shot ahead of Luke Browning and lead into turn one as Roman Bilinski locked up heavily from fourth on the grid to go flying into the barriers and out of the race. The incident brought out the safety car as Alex Connor came into the pits with some damage, a disastrous start for the Arden Motorsport team.
As the safety car came back in with 16 minutes remaining, it was Stevenson from Browning with Zak O’Sullivan in third. Abbi Pulling was continuing her strong weekend in fourth place after yesterday’s podium.
O’Sullivan and Browning would later have a fight for second place with the latter crossing the gravel and losing the place as the championship leader tried to regain control of his car.
Carlin’s Christian Mansell was having a better day, and was battling James Hedley for sixth place, leading the rookie class after Frederick Lubin’s fantastic drive in race one yesterday to take rookie honours.
Casper Stevenson’s lead was now at one second over Zak O’Sullivan, but the Carlin title contender was beginning to set faster laps and reel in the Argenti Motorsport scholarship winner.
Further down the field, there was a fun battle between Reema Juffali and Mathias Zagazeta, who have both seemed to be attached at the hip this season as Rafael Villagomez had an accident that left the Fortec Motorsport rookie backwards in the barrier at the Sunny in and out section of the circuit.
But as we approached the chequered flag, it was Stevenson that took the win ahead of the battling Zak O’Sullivan in second place ahead of Luke Browning, with Abbi Pulling in fourth and her team mate James Hedley in fifth place.
