Dorlin’s victories follow his two wins last time out at Donington Park and have taken the 19-year-old past Coates into the championship lead. Four points separate them heading to the Clio Cup’s next two rounds at Cheshire’s spectacular Oulton Park circuit next month.
Meanwhile there some inspired drivers elsewhere during the weekend. WDE’s Lee Pattison charged from tenth on the grid to finish fifth in race one. In the same race MRM’s Jade Edwards achieved her best result to date with seventh after qualifying a highest ever eighth on the grid.
Elsewhere, honours in the Graduates Cup for younger drivers in their first full season in the Clio Cup were shared at Thruxton between 16-year-old Team Pyro team-mates Zak Fulk (Guildford) and Bradley Burns (Farnham) who leads the standings in the class.
Pyro has extended its lead in the Entrants Trophy while Dorlin’s results have helped Westbourne close in on WDE for second place.
In memory of Roy Fewkes
During the course of the Thruxton weekend all Clio Cup cars sported a logo in memory of Roy Fewkes who passed away last Friday (11 May). From the late Eighties to the early Noughties, Roy served as Technical Commissioner for Renault Sport’s highly successful motor racing championships in the UK which included 5 GT Turbos, the inaugural Clio Cup (1992-95), Spider sports cars (1996-99), the return of the Clio Cup in 2000 plus its 1.6 and 2.0 Formula Renault single-seater categories.
