Hall and Gore dominate in Cheshire

Monday, June 16, 2014 - 10:30
Adrian Hall extended his lead in the Lotus Cup UK SuperSport championship after his third straight victory at Oulton Park.
The Exige driver was beaten by fellow front row starter Fabio Randaccio at the start, however, and only returned to the front after Randaccio’s Europa clashed with a backmarker. Randaccio recovered to take second place, whilst Marcus Jewell took the 211 class and third overall. Adam Knight followed in fourth place and the Exige win after rival Adam Balon suffered mechanical troubles.

Adam Gore completed the race in the top ten, taking the Production honours in the process from John LaMaster and Craig Denman.
A tough race for Stuart Plotnek left him with just a four point advantage over Denman, LaMaster and James Little. Ten points covers the top seven as the championships head across the English Channel to Spa-Francorchamps next month.

Gore also took a brace of wins over a huge Elise Trophy grid to give himself a commanding lead in the title standings after mixed results for main rivals Fulvio Mussi and Jack Goff. Mussi challenged for victory in the opening encounter and made his way past after the pair briefly touched, but sportingly gave the place back before the line. Gore’s team mate Jason Baker took a brace of podiums one year on from taking victory in Cheshire, whilst Stefan Donnelly, son of former F1 driver Martin, was ecstatic with third place in the second encounter, his highest so far.
