Mallory Park played host to a blockbuster British Automobile Racing Club race day this past Bank Holiday Monday (August 26) as four championships continued their 2019 campaigns at the picturesque Leicestershire venue in scorching temperatures.
George Turiccki staked his claim in the Pickup Truck Racing Championship as he powered his way to a dominant double around the challenging oval layout. Entering the event as one of several title protagonists, Turiccki enjoyed a near-perfect
Running as low as fourth in the opening encounter, Turiccki was soon on the move as the 25-lap race progressed and took the lead on the fifth tour, never looking back from there onwards to triumph.
Race two was almost a carbon-copy of the previous duel as Turiccki once again bided his times inside the top five before striking early and controlling proceedings right the way up to the chequered flag.
The BARC Super Silhouette Championship had a familiar feel to it once again as Malcolm Blackman continued his rich vein of form with another double-winning performance.
Having entered the event as the driver to beat, winning all but one of the races run, Blackman topped the times in qualifying before then producing a scintillating performance to top the podium in both races.
Alex Jay continued the theme of drivers scoring two wins at Mallory Park in the Junior Saloon Car Championship, as the teenage sensation enjoyed a breakthrough meeting. Having shown plenty of speed throughout the year, Jay came to the fore firstly by storming to the front row of the grid in qualifying.
From there, the #77 was peerless as he powered his way to a maiden victory in the opener before doubling his tally later in the day.
Rounding out the day’s action was a pair of races from the Lancaster Insurance MG Owners Club Championship, where the spoils were shared between William Sharpe and Steve McDermid – both of whom took a step closer to title glory in their respective classes.
