Weltch Media-supported racing driver Ben Power set the fastest lap of the weekend and finished on the podium on both days to keep his National Legends Car racing championship hopes alive.
Ben, aged 25, was in action at Pembrey circuit, near Llanelli, in the latest rounds of the hotly-contested series, which will soon return to TV.
On the first day at Pembrey, he finished third in race 1, and second in race 2 (having gone off the track while holding a big lead), before taking seventh in the final, to gain second place overall for the day.
The next day, he was second in the first race, seventh in the next, and fifth in the final for an overall third place.
The weekend’s results leave him in third place in the championship – behind former world champion, John Mickel, and James Holman, who finished third in last season’s series.
“I’d have been happier if I’d been able to finish ahead of John and James this weekend, but overall it wasn’t a bad couple of days,” he said. “There’s still a long way to go, and as long as I don’t let them get too far ahead, I think the title is still within reach.”
He set the fastest lap of the weekend at Pembrey, where he holds the all-time record for Legends Cars.
His position as one of the most talented young drivers in British motorsport was cemented when he was invited to the World Rallycross Talent Search final at Lydden Hill, two days before the Pembrey event. He was among a select group, competing for a place in the RX Lites event at the world championship – a place won by sports and touring car racer, Tom Onslow-Cole.
