Dengate and Lovett share victories
5 Club Racing MX 150R Series raced at the Silverstone National Circuit within the Sports Specials field. Kevin Dengate and Chris Lovett shared the MX150R victories.
Stewart Mutch also set a lap which was within a second on the pole time, setting up for an exciting couple of races. Darren Griffin beat Russell Clarke, Micky Scott and Sylvia Mutch to fourth on the grid.
Dengate made the best start and immediately pulled out a gap. A gap that he controlled to end. Fourteen seconds was the victory margin over the 13 lap bout.
Sylvia Mutch harried Scott for lap after lap until a coming together with the barrier forced retirement after eight laps.
Scott was unable to start after damaging his engine in race 1, however he donated parts from his stricken car to Sylvia Mutch to get her out for race 2.
A mistake saw early leader Dengate drop back on lap two. He dropped to third behind Lovett and Stewart Mutch. Dengate wasted no time and was back into second by the fourth tour.
By half distance, Dengate had caught Lovett leaving the pair to dice on circuit. Lap nine saw Dengate go to the front with Lovett sitting right behind him once more with the Silverstone National Circuit lending itself perfectly to slipstreaming.
Mutch held on to third, just seconds back. Clarke, Griffin and Sylvia Mutch completed the top six finishers.
After such exciting racing, the MEV racers now look forward to Croft over the 23rd and 24th of May.
