Round 5 – Knockhill

Standard

Round 5 of the Scottish Championship was held at Knockhill Racing Circuit. This time it was normal direction but this was a very difficult weekend. Change of weather every 2 minutes made tyre choices very hard. Qualifying went okay for Lewis with a 4th place. In the Scottish Championship race it was a solid 2nd place for Lewis. In the second race on Saturday, it kept changing between wet and dry and unfortunately the wrong tyre choice was made so a 4th place was the best result which Lewis could nurture out of. Sunday was hopefully going to be a better day for Lewis but strangely could not find pace in the first race after leading it so had to finish in a disappointing 4th place. In the 2nd Scottish race of the weekend it was very wet which Lewis was really excited about. A steady start for Lewis and he was in 3rd and was catching the front two as the rain got worse but unfortunately it got red flagged so Lewis had to take a 3rd place. In the final race of the day it was wet again and Lewis knew he could have the pace to win, he took the lead on lap 3 and never looked back and won the race. Torquil was not racing at Knockhill due to an injury from Owen which caused a fractured skull so he didnt want to risk any more injuries.
