Race Report

Despite an early off in challenging wet conditions, Nick Jackson and ex BTCC racer Ollie Pidgley took the inaugural win of the 2020 season at Snetterton. The pair in the NJM Racing Seat SuperCopa managed to best defending Champion Darren Goes, second, following a move during the pit stop window that saw them jump the Mangoes Racing Seat EuroCup. Making his competitive Championship debut, driver Gary Hufford in his BMW M3 came home third narrowly missing out on third overall, by half a second to Goes. Despite a strong showing pole sitter Steve Gales came home fourth in his own Seat EuroCup.

Consistency was key in Class A, with Brad Kaylor able to capitalize on the misfortunes of the retiring Darkside Developments VW, to take class win and crucially for the points fifth overall. The BMW’s in Class A rounding out the top three with Gary Burstow in the E46 M3 keeping the slightly older E36 M3 of Damien and Ronan Bradley behind. An honorable mention goes to Martyn Culley in eleventh, and fourth in class having started from the back row of the grid following technical problems with his Seat in qualifying.

Michael Smith took the Class B win in the 2019 TDC championship winning Seat Ibiza, albeit with a new driver at the helm. The non-starting pole sitting Seat of Nicholas Bosch and Will Dendy, and the Pit Lane starting BMW of Stuart Pywell, give the Seat a clear class run from lights to flag.  

Matthew Anstiss in the Boreham Motorsport run Honda S2000 showed strong pace all weekend to finish fourteenth overall with the debut win in the new-for-2020 SuperCup Class C.

Race Report

Steve Gales wins in the rain at Silverstone with a last minute move on second place Pidgley.

Extreme weather conditions saw the second round of the 2020 season start behind the safety car, as conditions were deemed too tricky for the traditional standing start. This seemed to favor the front wheel drive Seats, with Steve Gales and the team of Pidgley and Jackson almost tied for the lead following the pit stop window. Gales, then trailing Pidgley, was pushing hard, and it paid off as with the checkered flag looming, Pidgely tripped over while lapping a Class D car, and allowed Gales past to take the lead, and eventual win. This place overall and in Class S went to Darren Goes, who completed a Seat lock out of the podium, with the class S BMW’s completing the top seven.

Team Darkside took the Class A win, to complete the set, with class pole and class fastest lap. The second step on the class podium was claimed by Martin Culley up from third on the grid, passing Gary Burstow had to settle for third in his BMW.

Darkside also made an assist in the Class B win, with the Team Darkside supported Michael Smith claiming the Class B win in his Seat Ibiza - the TDC 2019 Championship winning car. Aided by the post qualifying retirement of David Shead in the BMW Compact, and able to jump the Seat Leon of Kaylor and Dendy, Smith climbed from third on the grid to take victory. A strong showing by the Seat Leon duo, held second place, with the team of Getino and Martin in the Porsche taking the last podium space.

Matthew Anstiss, had another strong race to top the Class C field, and take the Class C win, ahead of both Class B and Class A machinery on the road.

Race Report

Gurney and Tester win from pole at Brands Hatch on the Indy circuit, despite a penalty for an out of position start. The pair, along with Darren Goes fourth on the grid in his Seat, fell afoul of stopping ahead of their pit box following the green flag lap. However, the pole sitting BMW managed to stretch a substantial lead heading into the pit stop window, where Goes was left battling with the fast starting Callum Noble in the Thorney Motorsport BMW, and unable to gap Seat rival and Silverstone winner Steve Gales. An opportune safety car period confirmed the win for Gurney and Tester as they emerged a lap up on the field, with Goes, Ollie Pidgley, and Gales left to fight for second. Although second on the road over the line Goes was relegated to fourth with his earlier time penalty, gifting the second place to Championship and class rival Pidgley and his team mate Jackson. Gales took the last podium place.

In Class A, it was the Bradley duo who took the class win, ahead of the Championship racing debut of Shead in the BMW Compact in second. The retirement of both Scott Parkin in the Golf and Gary Burstow in the BMW, and a technical blunder resulting in retirement from both Culley Seat’s, meant it was the Bradley’s to loose, but a strong finish ensured the class win from second in class on the grid.

Chris Payne took Class B victory in his Caterham from pole in class. Michael Smith looked strong in second, with the team of Getino and Smith taking the final podium space in their Porsche. Sole Class C driver Matthew Anstiss retired on lap 22.
