Maason wins Vw Racing Cup opener round
Aaron Mason won the first race of the Volkswagen Racing Cup Great Britain season. In the only round at Oulton Park, Mason, in his Volkswagen Scirocco, defended his pole position against Joe Fulbrook in the Golf GTI. Third place went to James Greenway, who, like Mason, drives a Scirocco.
A multi-car accident just off the first start gave officials no option but to red flag the encounter. With the clear-up operation proving lengthy, round one was re-scheduled for later in the afternoon and the planned second race was cancelled.
At the re-start there was a big battle from fourth to ninth, just as the red flags were shown prior to the start of lap six due to a car off the circuit at Shell Oils Hairpin. Due to the race stoppage officials took the result back to the end of lap four.
David Sutton was classified fourth, in front of Stewart Lines, Jack Walker-Tully, Sam Morgan, James Walker and Josh Caygill in just 7 seconds. Matt Hamilton rounded out the top 10.
