Roger Orgee enjoyed a double header at Castle Combe, closing the gap on the championship leader to just four points.
CASTLE Combe’s first double header of the year saw Langford’s Roger Orgee close the gap at the top in his Weston College Van Diemen Formula Ford to keep his championship ambitions firmly on track.
Qualifying started well with a lap that put Roger provisionally second, but a slow puncture saw him end up seventh on the grid.
As the race got underway, Roger picked up a place on each lap and by the end finished a competitive fourth, with the championship leader three places behind.
The following day, cars started sliding off in qualifying after a damp start and a safety car was deployed. Roger was in a perfect position behind the safety car when the pack was released. He came round in front, but promptly had a high-speed 360 degree spin relegating him to sixth place, but worked his way up to second.
