Barkingside driver holds a 23-point lead in the Protyre Formula Renault Championship with one race to go

After a difficult weekend at Croft last month Barkingside racing driver Scott Malvern got his Protyre Formula Renault Championship bid firmly back on track taking a win and two second places at Donington Park at the weekend.

In a bumper 28-car field that included drivers from five continents, Malvern stretched his championship lead from a slender seven-point margin to a healthier 23 points over 2011 Championship runner-up Josh Webster.

“It’s been a fantastic weekend. We’ve had great weather, a very big crowd come along to watch and just the kind of results that we needed,” said a jubilant Malvern. “This sets us up nicely for the championship finale in a few weeks’ time.

“We had the pace in the car to win on Saturday but we were stuck behind Josh [Webster]. Luckily the tyres weren’t in too bad condition and I was able to control race two. It’s been a good weekend, let’s keep going as we are.”

The two final rounds of the championship will take place on the Silverstone National circuit over the weekend of October 6 and 7, supporting the very popular British Touring Car Championship .

Malvern’s Sunday race will be screened live on ITV4 with recorded highlights of both races being shown on the same channel later in the week.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
