Victory for UWR at Donington Park

This weekend saw teams and drivers take on the 8th round of the AR Morgan Challenge at Donington Park. With the F3 Cup running at the same time, the team had to split and roles were updated to cover each car and driver. 

Luck hasn't been on the side of ARV6 driver with regular mechanical issues forcing the Morgan driver to retire early from several races this season. Qualifying second in class saw Hirst's fortune begin to change and with the track remaining dry, it was looking to be a competitive first race. 

Tony's pace and confidence saw him sail through both races to take home two class wins, finishing just below race leader, Russell Patterson. An unfortunate leak in the fuel tank saw an early retirement from race one and a non-start in race 2 for Craig Hamilton-Smith. 

Join the team for the championship final on Saturday 30th September at Snetterton 200!
