Roger Orgee moved up to second place as he chases a third Castle Combe Formula Ford Championship in a row.

Langford racing driver Roger Orgee continues to improve in his CPM/Weston College Formula Ford in his chase for a third Castle Combe championship in a row.

Qualifying was electric with Roger initially setting the fastest time and then spinning off while trying to improve, eventually qualifying in third and fifth places.

Race one saw eight cars battling for first place, with Roger holding a reasonably secure third, just behind his two championship rivals. Waiting patiently for a gap paid off, as with two laps to go he passed the championship leader for second place and closed to within 0.3 seconds of the leader to take second and fastest lap.

Race two saw Roger sitting at the back of a five-car train for the first 10 laps, before moving up, one car per lap, to third place, again behind the same two competitors.

With three laps to go, Roger started to attack and while the leaders tripped over each other, Roger was through to take a brilliant win and another fastest lap. He is now in second place, with just one round to go.
