SPIN ROBS BURGESS OF PODIUM TREBLE, BUT A STRONG WEEKEND FOR STABLES MOVES HIM TO THIRD IN THE OVERALL STANDINGS

Radical Challenge Championship leader Steve Burgess continued his quest for the Radical Challenge title, with two second place finishes from his three races at Brands Hatch, but teenaged RAW team mate Joe Stables was hot on his heels too for the Banbury based team.
RACE 1:
Burgess started to well and was second by the end of the opening lap in race one. He hadn’t got the pace to stick with leader Bradley Smith and during the latter stages found Jack Lang closing in too. “The handling went off and from two thirds distance I could see him in my mirrors,” he explained after retaining second.
John Macleod was ninth at the start but he was an early pit visitor. “I went to go underneath Mark Crader at Druids and Jack Manchester was ahead, he turned in and I misjudged my braking and hit him,” he admitted.
Joe Stables had lost out at the start but his recovery was rapid. 10th on lap two became seventh by lap six as he began to attack team mate Aaron Bailey. Stables got by to hold sixth from lap eight, but Bailey retained a solid seventh, and taking the team class victory.
Further down the order Elliot Goodman took 14th on the last lap, with Gary Paterson 18th, the recovering Macleod 22nd and Barry Liversidge 24th.
RACE 2:
There was a start line collision at the start of the second race but the RAW sextet came through undamaged. Burgess was once again left chasing Smith, with Stables in sixth and Macleod 14th.
Stables dived ahead of Mark Richards into Paddock Hill to take fourth on lap four, but a few laps later the safety car was out, with Macleod a casualty having climbed to seventh place. “I was going well and made progress but Jason Rishover went wide at Surtees and I slowed but still couldn’t give him enough room and he hit me,” Macleod explained.
“I had my best pace after the safety car tried to challenge Bradley at the restart,” said Burgess. He had to settle for second again though, while Stables snatched a last lap third with another dive into Paddock Hill.
Liversidge finished strongly too, as both he and Goodman took 11th and 12th respectively on the last lap. Paterson was 14th and Lee Bailey was 18th.
RACE 3:
Burgess was alongside Smith at the start of the weekend’s final race, but hopes were soon dashed. “Jack Manchester had me off at the first corner from third place, then I recovered and glimpsed in my mirror, expecting to see Joe Stables and spun at Graham Hill bend,” he explained.
Stables had started well and from third on the opening lap, he ousted Lang for second on lap two. Macleod was also on the move and held a strong fifth until the pit stop window.
Burgess had restarted dead last but he was back into the top ten by lap eight and pitted from eighth place.
Stables briefly led before his stop, which was enough to keep him in contention too. A late safety period bunched the field up for a final flurry but Stables had to settle for third. “The safety car helped me a bit, but I abused the track limits a bit and got penalised,” said Burgess whose recovery from last to fourth was still an achievement.
Macleod had looked on for a top six finish too, but his car got away from him at Graham Hill Bend four laps from home and dropped him to 16th.
Liversidge finished strongly again to secure eighth with a lap to go, while Goodman completed the top ten. Paterson finished just ahead of Macleod in 15th and the Bailey’s 18th.
