First blood to MacDonald and Stilp in the British OK Championship
Dean MacDonald looked strong from the outset, winning both heats from Oliver Hodgson although he was pipped to fastest time in Qualifying by Max Stilp. Harrison Thomas joined Max Stilp on the second row of the first final grid behind MacDonald and Hodgson. After throwing off a challenge by Hodgson, who led a couple of early laps, MacDonald cruised to victory, albeit not overly comfortable. After problems on Saturday Jacob Stilp had to start from row five but was by far quickest on track and one more lap would have probably seen him take victory as he took Hodgson for 2nd on the last lap. Thomas stayed in touch for 3rd but Max Stilp was some 5s back.
So it was no surprise when Jacob Stilp sporting the Jules Bianchi livery on his Mad Croc stormed away to take Final 2 victory by almost 2s. MacDonald did the opposite going backwards to 6th and losing out to Hodgson, Knott, Thomas and the privateer Ryan Green who was arguably the surprise package of the weekend.Controlling tyre life on the Vegas was starting to come into effect so MacDonald and Hodgson are tying for top of the championship standings.
