Adam Quartermaine produced one of the drives of his career at Mallory Park last Sunday to win from the back of the grid and in doing so clinch the Class A title in the Richard Egger Insurance backed Club Formula Ford Midlands South Championship

Engine problems meant Quartermaine had to retire from the first of the double headers placing him on the back of the grid for the second race. However he charged through the field in his Team West-Tec Van Diemen to win from Stuart Kestenbaum. Stuart also enjoyed a memorable day having won the first race in his ‘new’ car – a 20 years old Reynard!

The Metro Caterham Academy produced two excellent races with packed grids adding to the spectacle. In Group 1, Jake Bonham lead the way following an early incident sidelining several cars necessitating a red flag, while in Group 2 Jeremy Webb led Steve Day and Ben Whibley over the line by a mere half second.

Two races for the Federal Tyres Nippon Challenge for Japanese race-tuned road cars resulted in a win and second for Alex Thompson in his Subaru Impreza, beaten in the second race by Tim Clarke in his Mitsubishi Evo.

The Silverstone Tyres MR2 Series completed the schedule with a two more races. Unfortunately, a red flag had to be shown in the first race when Roger Pullan collided with the tyre wall at Gerrards. Adam Lockwood enjoyed an emphatic win by some 4 seconds in the first race, but was beaten into second by Ross Stoner in race two.
