MALVERN TAKES THE SPA EUROCUP CROWN


CATEGORIES:

Scott Malvern claimed a second Formula Ford EuroCup Champion’s trophy for his cabinet at Spa-Francorchamps on Saturday, the Jamun Racing driver following up his Brands Hatch triumph of last month with two race wins and a second in the Belgian races. Geoff Uhrhane was the other race victor, the Australian JTR pilot scoring a topsy-turvy second-race win after a finish-line clash with Malvern.

Malvern, the current leader of the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain, declared that the first-race Spa victory was his “best win yet”, the 22-year-old from Essex overcoming the handicap of a 14th-place start slot.

“That was my best win,” said Malvern, “and to take the record of 10 wins in a row, as well. It’s just unbelievable. The first couple of laps were really hard. The guys at the back fight just as hard as those at the front. For the lead, I managed to get a run on Geoff down through Eau Rouge and just managed to pull a gap. Sounds easy, but it wasn’t.”.
