Two wins put him back into title contention.

Barkingside racer Scott Malvern stormed back into title contention at Oulton Park in Cheshire last weekend.

Malvern dominated proceedings in the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain, achieving the perfect score in the three championship rounds held on Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday.

The Jamun Racing Team driver took three wins from three pole positions and had the fastest lap in every race in a superb master class display.

Not only that, Malvern was never headed in each of the races and achieved impressive winning margins of almost three seconds, seven seconds and six seconds respectively in the 20-car International field.

Malvern has now rocketed up the championship table from a lowly 12th position to second place, cutting by half the points advantage held by his Jamun Racing team-mate, the Dutch driver Jeroen Slaghekke.

The Barkingside racer was delighted with his results and commented afterwards: “I needed a strong performance after our problems at Silverstone two weeks ago and this has put me right back on track. I’d just like to thank all my partners who helped me to be here.”

His championship bid now moves on to Snetterton, in Norfolk, over the weekend of May 14 and 15.
