Albert Webster made it three wins from three in the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE’s JCW Sport class with victory in the second scheduled race of the weekend at Snetterton.

Webster had scored victory in both the rescheduled Donington Park race as well as the first of the three Snetterton encounters, but lined up fourth on the grid, with Dylan Hotchin lining up on class pole.

When the lights went out, Hotchin didn’t get the best of starts and came under attack from fellow front-row starter Cameron Richardson, with Webster also getting away well from the second row of the grid.

Within the first few corners, Webster had hit the front in his JRW Motorsport-run car, with Roan Lundy in the Sustainable Fuel Development car and Richardson also managing to get ahead of Hotchin as he slipped back down to fourth.

As in the earlier race, Webster and Lundy were able to start breaking away from the pack behind as Richardson found himself under pressure from Hotchin who fought his way through to third on the second lap.

From that point on, the field started to stretch out around the longest circuit on the calendar, with Webster and Lundy able to keep pace with the tail enders in the JCW class.

On lap nine, the pair managed to get ahead of Jamie Going and would run together to the finish, with Lundy making his bid for the lead coming out of the final corner.

Even though it made no difference in terms of points or trophies – with Lundy’s Invitational status meaning he wasn’t eligible for either – Webster held on to keep his rival behind as the pair crossed the line split by just 0.078s.

Third on the road but second in the points allowed Hotchin to retain his advantage at the top of the standings, with third going to Ben Crossley after an early move on Richardson that ultimately decided the final podium position.

That was despite the fact that Richardson was the quicker of the pair through the final laps, but was unable to close the gap down enough to make a move and grab a top three result.

Chris MacKenzie brought his car to the finish to take sixth on the road and fifth in class for the Bitcoin Racing squad.
