Alp-Williams takes reversed grid race win as Jeakins doubles up in Production

George Alp-Williams led an Area Motorsport 1-2-3 in the second Milltek Sport Civic Cup race of the day, holding off duelling teammates Alistair Camp and Matt Luff for the Cup class win as Alfie Jeakins made it two out of two in Production.


Courtesy of having finished tenth in race one, Will Di Claudio made a good getaway from pole in the Pro Alloys Racing EP3 as Brad Lane and Harvey Caton battled it out for second place on lap one.

Soon after there was contact between Lane and Alp-Williams at Coppice which saw Lane retire and Caton go wide at the same corner, allowing Di Claudio to build a lead.

Di Claudio led race one winner Dan Thackeray, Alp-Williams, Max Lewis, Alistair Camp, Matt Luff, Ryan Bensley, Will Redford, Max Edmundson and Morgan Bailey in the top ten in the early laps as the field began to shuffle places.

Di Claudio held the lead for the first two laps before being overhauled on lap three by Thackeray, Alp-Williams, Camp and Luff as Max Lewis also dropped down the order, slotting into seventh place behind Will Redford in the Kinetic Motorsports EP3.

Ryan Bensley also lost places, before staying ahead of Morgan Bailey and Max Edmundson, however the Zest Racecar Engineering driver would retire one lap later.

As the battles raged, the order stabilised with five minutes left as Alp-Williams led Camp and Luff, who were fighting over second place with no quarter given, whilst Thackeray and Redford watched on from fourth and fifth places.

The top five remained this way until the end, with Area Motorsport taking a 1-2-3 of the podium places ahead of Thackeray and Redford. Morgan Bailey fought back from 21st on the grid to come home in sixth place ahead of Di Claudio, with Max Lewis taking eighth place ahead of Paul McHugh and Harvey Caton.


With the top four drivers in the Production class being reversed for race two, Simon Welch took pole position ahead of Rhys Lewis, with race one pole sitter Dave Marshall lining up in third ahead of race one winner Alfie Jeakins.

With his car repaired, Loui Hounsell lined up in fifth ahead of Mark Hughes in his Kinetic Motorsport FN2.

It was Rhys Lewis who made the best getaway as he led both Marshall and Jeakins through the opening corners on lap one as both Hughes an Hounsell managed to get past Welch.

By the time the class made its way through Mansfields, Jeakins has assumed the lead with Marshall in pursuit as Lewis dropped to third place, with Hounsell up to fourth and closing down on Lewis.

Jeakins managed to extend his gap over Marshall to over four seconds as he stayed ahead to take his second win of the day, with Marshall taking runner up honours ahead of Hounsell, who took his first podium of the day.

Hughes, Lewis and Welch completed the top six.
