Reade wins following Grave mistake from Pole sitter

Luke Reade took the first win, of his first full TDC season in the Graves Motorsport prepared BMW 1 Series. Following qualifying, where his best lap of the session was only good enough for fifth, Reade pulled out a stellar performance, showing the true potential of the BMW with pace far greater than that of the start of the day. After Harrison recovered from a costly mistake on the grid, the fight for the lead was tough between Reade and fellow Class B front runner Simon Harrison in the Renault Clio. Eventually Reade won out though and held a gap of less than a second over the line to take the flag and the win. Third in Class B were the pair of James Foard and Callum Tuckett, following a time penalty for a pit stop infringement.

Dean Hyde took the Class C win in the E30 BMW from twenty second on the grid, and sixth in class, following a time penalty for the on-the-road winner Nick White. White having been deemed to gain an advantage by cutting the final corner on the last lap. Third in Class C was Championship newcomer, and Class C “pole” sitter Jamie Jeffrey in the Z4.

Another Championship newcomer had a strong showing, as Kevin Glover in the Class D Fiesta, took Class “pole” and the win, ahead of Class D veteran Ray Worley in the Boreham Motorsport MX5. Fiestas rounded put the podium in class with Jack Youhill in the 93R Fiesta holding his position from qualifying to take third in the race.
