Camp takes lights to flag win as Jeakins fights forward to victory

Alistair Camp put his Cadwell Park woes behind him after taking a lights to flag win in round four of the 2022 Milltek Sport Civic Cup at Brands Hatch, with Alfie Jeakins taking his fourth win of the year in the Production Class.

Cup Class

Camp got a clean start off the line as he headed Area Motorsport team-mate Matt Luff into Paddock Hill Bend with Kinetic Motorsports Will Redford staying in close company from third on the grid ahead of Dan Thackeray. The opening laps were made all the more interesting with spots of rain starting to fall during the 15 minute race.

The order settled early on with Camp leading Luff, Redford, Thackeray, Brad Lane who had moved up to fifth position ahead of Max Lewis, Morgan Bailey, Harvey Caton, and Ryan Bensley, before the positions began to change once more as further back debutant Jack Harding passed championship returnee Ben Sharpe for 13th position.

Bensley passed Caton for ninth place, before dropping down the order in the following laps after an off track excursion left the JWB Motorsport driver down in 20th place and already on a charge to try and get back inside the top ten places, as Camp extended his advantage ahead of Luff and Redford.

Cadwell Park race winner George Alp-Williams was also making moves up the order, having started down in 15th place and moving up two places by mid race, getting ahead of the returning Paul Taylor in the process.

Alistair Camp held on to take his first win of the year ahead of Matt Luff with Will Redford taking his first ever podium, with Dan Thackeray and Morgan Bailey completing the to five, after the MJB Motorsport driver passed Brad Lane in the late stages of the race.

Ryan Bensley with Max Lewis, Jack Harding and Ben Sharpe completing the top ten in his Pro Alloys Racing EP3. Daniel MacDonald, George Alp-Williams, Paul Taylor, Jordan Brennan and Alfie Threlfall competed the final points positions.

Production Class

Loui Hounsell started from his first ever pole position in the Production class of the 2022 Milltek Sport Civic Cup, making a clean getaway in his Jeakins Race Preparation EP3 as team-mate Alfie Jeakins continued his on track rivalry with Kinetic Motorsports Dave Marshall in his FN2 Civic.

Hounsell stayed ahead as Jeakins began to work on passing Marshall in the opening laps and the Cadwell Park triple winner was soon past Marshall and in pursuit of his team-mate, with series debutant Aaron Reeve holding a strong fourth place in the opening stages.

With both drivers evenly matched, Hounsell held onto the class lead until the late stages of the race, with Jeakins making his way past to go on and claim his fourth class win of the year, out of four races.

Hounsell took second place, just six tenths of a second behind at the flag with Marshall taking third place and keeping up his podium run so far this season.

Mark Hughes was classified in fourth place as both Aaron Reeve and Rhys Lewis retired from the race.
