Oulten Park hosted round 4 of the Lotus Elise Trophy and Lotus Cup UK on Saturday 20th June. An action packed day of racing with tricky and changing conditions tested the drivers and their skills to the limit.
Lotus Elise Trophy - Oulton Park Race 1
1. Luigi Mazza
2. James Little
3. David Ellesley
A storming drive and car control display from Mazza in tricky conditions gave him the win from Little and a season best result for 2015 newcomer David Ellesley
1. Jason Baker
2. Luigi Mazza
3. Freddie Hetherington
A superb drive from Baker in a car hired from track-club that he'd literally never sat in until the morning qualifying session!! Any one of five drivers could have won the race and only a missed gear for Craig Denman cost him a podium and valuable points
Lotus Cup UK Production Class - Oulton Park
1. James Little & Andrew Bentley
2. Ryan Savage
3. Stuart Ratcliff & Anthony Dunn
Great victory for the Elise Cup R of James Little, Ryan Savage had a difficult weekend with an off in Elise Trophy and an engine failure and spectacular fire in the second Elise Trophy race but he sandwiched that trouble with a valuable points haul in the 60 minute Cup race.
Ratcliff drove a stormer in the tricky early conditions to recover from an issue that put him last starting from the pits. With Rowbottom failing to score the championship is wide open.
Lotus Cup UK Supersport - Oulton Park Result
1. Adam Gore
2. Adam Balon
3. Alex Reed
Adrian Hall wins the Open Class and Marcus Jewell wins the 2-eleven Class.
A well earned victory for Adam Gore when an early shower didn't last long enough for Adam Balons wet tyre gamble to pay off. An early trip into the gravel meant Alex Reed had to fight back to earn the final podium spot taking fastest lap on the way.
