A show of skills leaves Rockingham Rocking.
After an exhilarating first round at Oulton Park, everything was set for round two at Rockingham to be full of action and drama – and it certainly delivered. All of the drivers put in impressive performances, with Luke Reade and MINI Challenge veteran Nathan Harrison both earning places on the podium. But when the chequered flag was waved, the day belonged to Ant Whorton-Eales. He won both of the weekend’s races, making it three for three in the series so far and cementing his place at the top of leaderboard. But with only two out of eight rounds down, it’s still all to play for…
Starting with a bang.
Hot on the heels of a dramatic last-minute win at Oulton Park, Ant Whorton-Eales got off to a spectacular start at Rockingham. Despite a slippery track, he set a great time in qualifying to secure pole position.
A dominant display.
After a chaotic start to the first race, Whorton-Eales tore away from the pack to earn himself a comfortable win. Luke Reade finished a solid run in second, and after a tense battle with James Gornall, Calum King took his spot on the podium in third.
Hitting the hat-trick.
The second race saw Whorton-Eales take advantage of his rivals’ troubles to secure another win – making it three out of three in the series so far. Jordan Collard finished a strong weekend with second place, while Nathan Harrison battled from a starting position of 28th to place third.
Man on a mission.
With two rounds complete, Ant Whorton-Eales has already made a serious statement on the tarmac, and he couldn’t be happier. “I’ve always gone well around here”, he beamed after the race. “I couldn’t have imagined a better start to the year”.
