Link Up Ltd MSA Autotest Championship

Round 3 - Kent Driver Autotest, Maidstone and Mid Kent MC

Alastair Moffatt was in dominant form being fastest on 15 of the 16 tests as he took his third straight FTD of the season at the Maidstone and Mid Kent MC's Kent Driver Autotest.

Ashley Lamont was again very rapid in the Westfield, but was kept on his toes by Richard Pinkney, who was just 2 seconds adrift after the first round of tests. A stall from Lamont saw Pinkney take the initiative after 8 tests, until the Caterham's gearbox failed and handed the class lead back to Lamont. Pinkney replaced the gearbox, but the gap was now too large to close.

Gavin Dickson put in another cracking drive in the Class C Nova winning the class and coming home 4th overall. John Moffatt was very quick out of the blocks to keep the pressure on Dickson and despite a penalty was less than a second behind him after the first round, but another penalty and some minor errors trying to catch up, meant he had to settle for second in class and 6th overall. Howard Everingham was the quickest of the Mini's gaining his third class win of the season and maintaining his second overall in the championship.
