THREE WINS FROM THREE FOR PEERLESS MALVERN
Jamun Racing’s Scott Malvern sealed a perfect weekend hat-trick of race wins and fastest laps at Oulton Park over Easter to rocket up the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain standings into second place – having begun the event down in 12th position.
After a disappointing season opener at Silverstone, albeit an event which brought with it a race victory in round one, Malvern knew he had to hit back with maximum scores at Oulton and throughout the Easter weekend at the Cheshire track he simply couldn’t be toppled.
“It’s been a mega weekend, really sweet,” said the Ilford driver. “It really couldn’t have gone any better – three poles, three wins and three fastest laps. We’re definitely back on track and now we need to keep closing the gap.”
The gap he speaks of is now only 22 points to championship leader, and team-mate, Jeroen Slaghekke, but the Dutchman scored well himself at Oulton with second, third and fifth place finishes.
Finland’s Antti Buri secured a deserved podium in round six for LMS with a hard-fought second place while, in the fifth round, Australia’s Nick McBride (Jamun) and Jerseyman Dan De Zille (JTR) also celebrated rostrum success.
Once again in the Scholarship Class, Derbyshire’s Cavan Corcoran was utterly dominant and is now undefeated in the first six races of 2011. In round five, he came within just 0.6s of the overall top 10.
