Donington National - 26th April 2014
Toyo Tires Racing Saloons
Just Matt for this race weekend. Peter's car has been upgraded for a few Kumho BMW rounds this season. Qualifying was a wet affair, but despite zero experience in the wet around the Donington circuit Matt was on the front row with fellow WSR team mate Dave Griffin on pole.
Race 1 was a very close battle with Stephen Pearson. Oil or coolant was dropped around the Old Hairpin and it seems almost everyone left the circuit, Stephen came out on top in this situation and took the lead on lap 2 with Matt quickly coming back to in front, leading over the line into lap 3. It was closely fought until the final laps when Matt was able to pull a few seconds lead to take the win. Race 2 was shaping up to be a 3 way battle between Stephen Pearson, Matt and Karl Catliff. Unfortunately a brake problem meant Matt had to pit. He went back out to test the car but no decent result was then possible.
