ALLOS & KAPADIA ROBBED OF DOUBLE WIN AT PAUL RICARD

An un-cooperative backmarker and resultant penalty and exclusion robbed Manhal Allos and Alex Kapadia of a double win in the Radical European Masters at Paul Ricard.

The Banbury based RAW Motorsports were looking to add to their victory at Spa last time out and from the start of race one Kapadia’s SR8 was into second place and challenging hard for the lead.
Kapadia attacked Abbot’s Spyder at every chance and got a nose alongside, but had to also defend from Scheier who had made it a three way lead fight.

A brave dive on lap seven almost took his nose off, before Scheier got a run on him and took second into Turn One.

Retaliation was swift and after retaking second into the Mistral chicane a lap later he finally got Abbott to lead by the end of the lap. “The opportunities just presented themselves,” he said.
Handing the lead car to Allos for the second half, all was going well until he encountered a backmarker who appeared to defend from him. With no blue flags and his pursuers closing in, Allos tried to force his way by, but after contact the backmarker spun.

He was given a drive through penalty but the laps were running out. Noble’s Spyder was catching too but on the last lap he straightlined the Mistral chicane and dropped to third. But with Allos forced to take his penalty and the chequered flag on the last lap, Littlejohn came through to snatch victory in the closing metres.

Worse was to come when Allos/Kapadia were excluded after some indecision by the officials how the penalty was served.

Andrew Ferguson’s Spyder finished strongly to secure sixth on the last lap, while Marcelo Marateotto/Marco Cencetti were second in the SR3 class with Elliot Goodman fifth on his Euro debut.

Allos started race two and quickly ousted Costa for sixth, before losing places again as he tried to take Corbett for fifth.

He was still chasing the Australian when the safety car intervened, opting for an early stop to hand to Kapadia.

The safety car was still out after the changeover and with the leader spinning, Kapadia was suddenly the new leader. “The luck was really with us this time,” he said.

He continued to push to consolidate the advantage, which resulted in a comfortable victory.
Jeremy Ferguson had run in fifth early on but finally settled in seventh during the second half.

In the SR3’s Cencetti had a terrific scrap with Moseley, but a touch at the final sent him spinning to take the flag in second, although the positions were later reversed, giving Cencetti their 5th win of the season with Goodman inheriting 3rd position for his first European Masters podium.

The success ballasted pitstop penalty and a further drive through played their part in the third and final race. Allos battled away to hold a strong third place, but after the stop Kapadia was left fighting his way back from eighth.

With six laps to go he was up to third, but time ran out to consider further progress. The Ferguson’s shared their Spyder and had been fourth until the last lap when Littlejohn pipped them.

Cencetti had another duel with Moseley in the SR3 but after the stops Marateotto was left chasing in second, while Goodman was an early retirement.
