Hoggard unbeatable in British Champs R2
In the TQ Kiern Jewiss was next just ahead of the Frenchman Axel Charpentier but it was the steady but fast Mark Kimber who lined up alongside Hoggard on the first final grid.
In the first Kiern Jewiss lost 2nd to Axel Charpentier before Morgan Porter took them both, the BMR driver being 5th on the grid. Mark Kimber leapfrogged to third, as Jewiss was penalized to 12th with a dropped front fairing from contact, elevating Charpentier, Callum Bradshaw and local driver Roman Haskett. Porter could only reach within 2s of Hoggard with Kimber a second behind.
Hoggard swiftly pulled a gap on Porter in the second final leaving all the action around 3rd place. Jewiss had put in a stupendous first lap for 5th, he and Charpentier soon joined by Kimber in the battle for 3rd. Amidst much jostling on the last lap both into the first hairpin and through the chicane, Jewiss held onto 3rd over Charpentier and Kimber. Local driver Roman Haskett won the engine for best newcomer, finishing a very creditable 7th.
