Oulton Park Britsports Race 30th June 2007

Oliver’s second race in the Jade 2 Sports Prototype was in torrential conditions at the Cheshire circuit sharing with car owner Howard Spooner.

Oliver made a cautious start on a very oily track and held on to second place until a safety car was brought out to clear up the parked car that had lost its oil. As the safety car peeled off, Oliver attacked the Juno of Richard Curtis and a great battle commenced which resulted in Oliver taking the lead which he held until the clutch started to play up.

Distracted by this mechanical problem Oliver lost the lead but was glued to the leaders gearbox when they both pitted for the mandatory pit stop/driver change. Howard replaced Oliver but the car had to be push-started due to the clutch issue, costing the car 30 seconds and ultimately the win. Howard did an excellent job and brought the come home in 2nd place.

Thanks to Howard Spooner for allowing Oliver to share his car with him.
