MacDonald dominates OK at Shenington
The OK grid in the British Champs round at Shenington was increased on last time as more drivers come to love the performance benefits of this CIK international class, and newcomer Ross Martin was the lucky winner of a Vortex engine.
It was Jamie Flynn who took top spot in timed qualifying with Dean MacDonald just a tenth behind Flynn and Oliver Hodgson.
Then MacDonald got into his stride winning both heats with quite a few retirements including Martin, Flynn and Harrison Thomas.
MacDonald went onto to stamp his authority on the meeting by winning both finals comfortably. The flying Scotsman cruised clear of Hodgson in the first final then Toby Sowery dropped out elevating Jacob Stilp. Stilp was being pressed by Jamie Flynn who had come from 10th on the grid until Flynn also retired, leaving Luke Knott in 4th, well clear of Roy Johnson. Veteran Bobby Game had been in the mix for 5th, but fell to 11th.
For the second final Stilp leapfrogged the fast starting Thomas and Hodgson for 2nd but MacDonald had already cleared off. Thomas nipped past Hodgson in the chicane whilst Flynn roared up from the back to challenge Ross Martin for 5th.
