Bailey forges his way ahead for round eleven victory at Snetterton

The re-scheduled round eleven race from Donington Park took place at Snetterton on Finals Day with Morgan Bailey making his way from sixth on the grid to take his third win of the season as Nick Charlier took his debut win of the season in the Production Class.

Despite the race having its first attempt to run on Saturday evening, fading light forced the officials to red flag the race after two laps due to a three-car incident, with the race re-started on Sunday.

Pole sitter Ross Darlington had a poor start and soon dropped down the field with car issues as Rob Butler took the lead from George Alp-Williams, Morgan Bailey, Dave Buky, Jamie Tonks, Bradley Lane, Ben Sharpe and Alistair Camp

Bailey began his move forwards as he passed Alp Williams for second on lap two whilst Buky dropped to seventh place as he falls behind Tonks, Lane and Sharpe. However, Tonks would then fall foul of contact as he fell to eleventh place soon after.

The order soon changed as Sharpe passed Lane for fourth place on lap four whilst Tonks began to make his way back up the order to ninth place whilst Darlington took the positives as he moved up to eleventh before retiring later on.

Bailey made his pass for the lead on lap five as he stayed ahead of Butler and Alp-Williams in tow ahead of Sharpe and Lane before Camp passed Lane two laps later for fifth place as Buky moved ahead of Matt Luff for seventh position.

Bailey stayed on to take his third win of the year ahead of Butler and Alp-Williams completing the podium with Sharpe and Camp completing the top five places.

Nick Charlier pout his reversed grid pole position to good use as he converted it into a lights to flag win, taking his maiden win in the series whilst further back there was drama in the Production Class points situation with Alfie Threlfall not taking part due to having swapped cars form the one he used at Donington Park.

Whilst Charlier built his advantage, he led Harry Threlfall and title contender Mervyn Beckett with Matthew Stenning staying in close contact in the early stages along with fifth-placed Simon Welch.

The order stayed the same until lap three with Edward Sibbald passing Welch for fifth place and slotting in behind Stenning whilst upfront Charlier maintained his advantage ahead of Harry Threlfall and Beckett.

With Alfie Threlfall not in the race, this gave Beckett the best chance to close on his rival before the final three races of the year and he took second place on lap eight, as Charlier took his debut win in the series.

Harry Threlfall came home in third place ahead of Stenning, Sibbald and Welch.
