The Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain is all set for a cliffhanger finish this weekend at Brands Hatch following the penultimate meeting of the 2010 season last week at Donington. Josh Hill and Dan Cammish took the wins at the re-opened Leicestershire circuit but it was drama involving title protagonists Scott Pye and Scott Malvern which shook up the championship standings, putting Malvern back on top with two races to run.

Pye finished third – well ahead of Malvern – in race one, but contact in race two between them, triggered when Malvern was punted from behind into the back of Pye’s car, put Pye out at mid-distance. Malvern hobbled home second to return to the top of the championship standings.

Malvern’s on-paper lead is 13 points but, as he has scored in every race, he must drop his two worst results, totalling 20 points. Thus Pye still has the championship advantage, albeit a slender seven-point one.

There will be a down-to-the-wire finish at Brands for the Scholarship Championship title also, in which Tristan Mingay leads Luke Williams by 16 points, the Ray driver having won the class battle twice in their three Donington outings.
