Racing driver Roger Orgee, increased his lead in the Formula Ford Championship at Castle Combe.

Langford’s racing driver, Roger Orgee, increased his lead at Castle Combe with two rounds of the Formula Ford Championship on the same day.

Race one was a revelation with Roger flying through the grid from sixth and gradually pulling away from the pack, closely following his arch rival for the championship.

After 15 laps, Roger and Michael Moyers were less than two tenths of a second apart as they crossed the finish line, with Roger setting fastest lap.

Race two saw Roger burst through to hold second place, ahead of his rival in third. There followed an enthralling five-car battle which included three championship winners and where places changed each lap. Roger came home safely in third place, increasing his lead in the championship and protecting his run of podium finishes to every race in the last 18 months.
