Lucas Romanek Wins at Oulton Park in National Race Opener

Lucas Romanek qualified in 8th place at Oulton park, so it was clear that he had his work cut out if he was going to win the race. Lucas Romanek made the best start and was quickly up to the leaders. By the start of lap 2 Lucas was in 3rd place and fighting for the lead.

Lucas beat Oldfield Motorsport team-mate Brandon McCaughan by just 0.078 seconds, with the top six covered by 0.862s in an interruption-free race.

2nd race and Lucas Romanek made a strong start from pole, while Team Dolan’s Morgan Quinn pressured McCaughan for second. The top two ended the opening lap 0.228 seconds apart, and there was a similar gap after lap two while Ammonite Motorsport’s Elliott Budzinski set the fastest lap in fourth having picked up a tow from Quinn.

McCaughan then claimed the fastest lap to close in on the lead, but Romanek resisted the pressure despite the pair going side-by-side at the end of lap five.

The lead changed hands next time by, then Romanek nosed back ahead before McCaughan passed once more. There was never more than 0.2s between them until the final lap when McCaughan took the chequered flag 0.374s ahead.
