Our racing driver client Ben Power has extended his lead in the MRF National Legends Car Championship after winning three races in the two-day meeting at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire.
Ben won both of Saturday’s heats and the second race on Sunday, as the spectacular series made its first visit to Cadwell in three years.
He also recorded the fastest lap in several races and came within 0.2 seconds of the lap record, set in 2014.
“It was another really good weekend,” he said. “Things have been falling into place, and I’m very pleased with another three wins from the weekend.
“It’s a great feeling to be top of the championship standings, but there’s a long way to go yet, and a lot can happen.”
Provisional MRF Legends Cars National Championship Points:
1st Ben Power, 3070pts; 2nd John Mickel, 2940pts; 3rd Jack Parker, 2665pts; 4th Steve Whitelegg, 2340pts, 5th Paul Simmons, 2325pts; 6th Miles Rudman, 2060pts.
Legends racing originated on the US oval tracks, and the cars have an American look, being 5/8-scale replicas of classic US models. Guttercrest Racing runs a Ford Coupe 1934 replica, with a 1250cc Yamaha motorcycle engine.
With identical cars and the fastest drivers having to start at the back of the grid, there is said to be more overtaking in a single Legends race than in a whole season of Formula 1.
Guttercrest Racing is backed by the family-owned aluminium guttering company Guttercrest, based in Oswestry. The team has further support from us – the award-winning Cardiff-based PR and communications consultancy Weltch Media.
