Anthony & Barry carry on winning

Anthony and race partner Barry Gates continued to set the pace in the Radical Enduro SR3 championship at Oulton Park.

The weekend started well with Anthony qualifying on Pole Position in the SR3 class, over half a second clear of nearest rival Ben Jackson.

In the first race on Saturday, Gates was holding a comfortable 2nd position behind Jackson, but a mistake at the Knickerbrook Chicane caused contact with the tyre barriers badly damaging the rear wing. The car was still driveable albeit with a huge loss in downforce and with 25 minutes of the race remaining a valiant effort was made to finish the race in 2nd position, with RPM Motorsport team mates Phil Bailey and Bradley Ellis taking the win.

In the second race of the weekend on Bank Holiday Monday, this time Gates made no repeat of his mistake and handed the car over to Anthony in a close 2nd place despite pressure from Bailey. Anthony took the lead shortly thereafter and although was chased hard by Ellis to the chequered flag, he took the win with fastest lap and once again a new SR3 lap record to boot.

Anthony & Barry now lie 2nd in the points behind Bailey & Ellis, closing the gap by a single point over the weekend. "It was great to finish the weekend with the result we deserved. Barry's told himself off enough about Saturday's mistake so I don't think we'll see that one happen again! I think we've shown we are the quickest pairing - if we continue to work hard we should be able to fight for the championship."

The next race is at Belgium's fantastic Spa-Francorchamps in a fortnight.
