LUKE SPORT X MAXIMUM MOTORSPORT ROUND 4 AT OULTON PARK
With a great team working on the Focus tirelessly, Lines got off to a great start in the first race, managing to avoid the drop-off to bring the car home in 27th. He said: “The car felt the best it has yet. The team made some major set-up changes overnight and I really could feel the difference.”
A few more changes were made to the car for the 2nd race and by the end of the first lap Line had moved up to 25th. Lines did this on a track that is infamously difficult to make passes. Lines managed to secure his second best finish of the season. Completing 16 laps, Lines crossed the line in 21st: “That was a great race. I was sitting with Ollie (Jackson) the entire race and, for the first time this season, I could have a proper battle. Everything is going the right way.”
Commencing in 21st for the 3rd race Lines made an outstanding start, instantly making headway as the pack turned in at 1. As the pack left the Cascades, Lines lost all drive from the car, forcing him to retire. He said, “it’s a great shame I didn’t get the chance to challenge for points during that race. The car’s the best it has felt all weekend but all of a sudden it just died.”
Lines will now take to the next rounds of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Croft this weekend with even more determination, taking all the positives from Round 4.
