BTCC Donington 3: Plato doubles up 15th July 2007, 23:38
Jason Plato took a second win at Donington Park to extend his championship lead over Fabrizio Giovanardi. The Italian now trail the Seat driver by 25 points in the championship.
Jason Plato flattened the opposition in a second wet race at Donington Park, leading home race one winner Gordon Sheddon and Fabrizio Giovanardi. Plato’s fifth win means he has eked out a slightly larger lead in the championship.
Rain-lashed Donington Park had the kind of weather we’re more used to seeing at Knockhill. So it was fitting that Dunfermline native Gordon Shedden triumphed in terrible weather in the first race. Behind him were two drivers with extraordinary tales to tell. Adam Jones finished second in a three year old Seat and Matt Neal […]
Scott Dixon won his second consecutive race of 2007 – and once again it was championship leader Dario Franchitti who followed him across the line. The rain-delayed race suffered a brief interruption due to further rain but it was a largely incident-free event.
Sebastian Hohenthal took a close win in the second race at Brands Hatch, chased home by Atte Mustonen and Marko Asmer. The podium finishers were covered by one second at the line. Both Asmer and Mustonen made efforts to pass Hohenthal but the Swede kept his cool. Michael Devaney scored the best result of the […]
Marko Asmer’s domination of the 2007 British F3 championship continued with his seventh win in 11 races. He beat Raikkonen-Robertson team mates Stephen Jelley and Jonathan Kennard by over eight seconds – last year’s champions still looking for their first win this year. Asmer now leads Maro Engel by 70 points in the championship.
Franck Mailleux took his first win the the F3 Euroseries in the second race at Mugello, with race one winner Romain Grosjean battling through to second. A first lap incident eliminated James Jakes, Michael Patrizi, Filip Salaquarda and Basil Shaaban. It also saw Dani Clos jump into the lead and hold off a string of […]
Mika Hakkinen took his second DTM victory of the year – but this time there’ll be no question of him being given half-points as he was at the Lausitzring. In fact he probably deserve double points after cunning strategy propelled him into a lead which he narrowly held over Mattias Ekstrom in the dying stages. […]
There’s a peculiar fascination with the worst of Formula 1. The great hopeless outfits of the early 1990s are a great source of comedy for F1 fans – whether it’s Andrea Moda sending Perry McCarthy out to qualify on wet tyres on a dry day at Silverstone in 1992, or Life’s farcically unreliable W12 engine […]
