Scott battles for title points at Oulton Park
2:57pm Thursday 12th June 2014 in Local Sport
Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain title fight protagonists Harrison Scott and Jayde Kruger prevailed against heavy rain to share the spoils of victory at Oulton Park.
In damp but drying track conditions during the 20-minute qualifying session on Saturday morning, Falcon Motorsport’s Scott, from Althorne, was the only driver to nip under 108 seconds with a 1m 47.973s around Oulton Park’s 2.7-mile International circuit to end the session 0.163s ahead of championship rival Kruger (JTR) and secure pole position for race one in the afternoon.
With heavy, grey clouds looming, 18-year-old Scott seized control of race one from the start and maintained a dominant lead to the chequered flag, 11 laps and 29.61 miles later, to claim his second wet race victory of the season.
Race two commenced late on Saturday afternoon with Scott in P6, Collard in seventh and Mealin in P9 for the new reverse-grid format. The track was dry, but the red flags came out on lap six when rain caught out three of the slick-shod runners, Max Marshall, Sam Brabham and Juan Rosso, all of whom left the track in unrelated incidents.
Scott took the chequered flag in P2.
A sunny Sunday morning brought the crowds to Oulton Park; the initial dry weather held as Scott and Kruger maintained their dominance on the championship podium’s top steps in race three on Sunday afternoon.
From alongside his rival on the front row of the grid, Scott was unable to find an answer to the pole-sitter’s pace, even during a safety car interlude.
