Conditions improved considerably for the start of the race, as the sun broke through and left a dry track. The FunCup drivers had been racing for 3 hours in the race previously, which left lots of rubber on the track, so lap times were expected to drop significantly.

And they did; the fastest lap of the race was some 6 seconds faster than the pole lap.

To the start; the extra grip didn't help Luca who bogged down slightly which meant that others, including Ryan, could move ahead. The front-runners jockeyed for position throughout the race, with Rob Boston moving comfortably ahead, a position he wouldn't relinquish.

Ryan and Luca were having a good race, just behind the lead pack. 4 laps from the end of the 17 lap race, Ryan lined up Chris Lovett (78) heading into Druids, moving to the right and taking the inside line. He held the line and was ahead as they exited the tight hairpin.

Next for Ryan was Jim Edwards Snr (21). For 2 laps, they were tight together and heading down the pit straight, Ryan sized up an opportunity for an overtake. He couldn't make it stick and as they went into the dip and back up at Paddock Hill towards Druids, Ryan took the outside line as Jim took the defensive position on the inside. Chris Lovett and Luca were following closely, looking at their own opportunities to overtake.

As they exited Druids, Jim was still ahead. Ryan went a bit wide, allowing Chris to take him on the outside. Luca was just behind Ryan. As Jim turned in, the back end stepped out, pitching him into a spin. Chris had to take evasive action, allowing both Ryan and Luca to pass them both.

And that was the order they ended the race in; Ryan in 11th place, Luca 12th.

Peter had an unevenful race, finishing in 20th place, ahead of Jade Paveley.

Preparations move ahead for Race 2, taking place on Sunday, with Luca starting in 12th place and Ryan in 15th. Peter was due to start (in 22nd place), but due to other commitments, team owner Mike Gorton has dusted off his helmet and will drive Peter's car instead. It promises to be an exciting race!
