MOTORSPORT: Messenger races in for second spot
12:00pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in Sport
Eynsham’s Dave Messenger secured the runners-up berth in the Alfa Romeo Class E Championship in a dramatic double-header finale at Silverstone.
Heading to Silverstone, Messenger, racing for Team Darnells/Solo Italia, was in fourth in the championship.
But after recording third-place finishes in the last two races – the second of which took place in torrential rain – he shot up to second place behind champion James Ford.
Messenger finished second despite only competing in nine of the 14 races.
And he said: “With the great results we’ve had this year we are hoping to increase our budget next year, allowing us to enter every race and make a challenge for the Class E Championship title.”
