WARRINGTON drivers experienced a tricky weekend of racing at Oulton Park.
Michael Goodacre’s Porsche Boxter S started 12th on the grid in the Toyo Tires Porsche Championship and he managed to keep it on the tarmac to finish seventh overall.
Starting 12th in the second race, Goodacre gained two places on the first lap and held 10th place until the finish flag.
Three Warrington drivers took part in the Advantage Motorsport Ford XR Challenge, Simon Shaw in a Ford Fiesta ST and Adam Burgess and Mark Noble both in a Ford Escort XR3i.
Shaw qualified sixth, but was unable to take part in the following races and Burgess, having started well in 14th, suffered extensive damage on the first lap to end his weekend.
Noble finished 21st in his first race then, lying 24th, was forced to pull off on lap nine of race two.
Lymm’s Oulton Park regular Phil Nelson was racing his historic Hawke DL2B in the pre-1990 Formula Ford 1600 race and made steady progress to finish 37th overall and third in his class.
Neil McArthur was joined by Rixton-based son David in the post 1989 Formula Ford 1600 race, both driving a Van Diemen LA10.
Neil ended in the gravel trap on lap three whereas David, leading the overall class championship and starting third on the grid, was involved in a last lap collision.
He suffered a badly damaged car to end his race and surrendered top spot in the overall class championship.
