Langford racing driver Roger Orgee hung onto second place at Castle Combe in his attempt to claims a third championship title.

Langford’s racing driver Roger Orgee is chasing a third championship victory at Castle Combe, this year in a new, untried car.

Qualifying went better than Easter, at one point holding down third place, but slipping to fifth in the final analysis.

The weather just about held for the race with rain clouds hovering. At the start Roger moved up to fourth and within two laps was fighting for the lead.

Roger and Michael Moyers moved away from the pack for the first 10 laps, but suddenly Roger’s lap times slowed.

Lap after lap the pack closed until with two laps to go they had caught up and were trying to pass, but Roger brought the car home in second place.

More testing is prescribed before the next round at the end of May.
