Silverstone 22nd September

Race Two
Race two looked promising right from the starting grid with Marcus on the second row and Ben on the 3rd. Marcus passed Proctor on the first lap and managed to defend against Ben, who had been eagerly trying to pass right from the start. Marcus unfortunately was passed by both Proctor and Ben on lap 2, out of Copse and down the Hangar straight respectively.  Proctor continued to do well passing Richard Ellis on lap 4 putting him in 3rd place.   Ellis later suffered an engine problem leading to him dropping from 4th to 6th place but this meant both Marcus and Ben had a chance to get good finishing positions.   Having deliberately held station behind Ben for a few laps, in the hope of them both hunting Proctor down (rather than both losing ground battling each other), Marcus decided to make the most of his better pace on lap 8 when he passed Ben at Club corner. 
 He then went on to pull a gap of over 2 seconds and was chasing Proctor down but there wasn’t enough time left to catch him before the chequered flag, meaning he missed out on the final podium place.  Hartech were pleased with finishing 4th and 5th though, a great team result.
