In only his second Swift Sport Championship outing, Retford’s Jake Taylor took sixth place at Lydden Hill, the home of Rallycross.

The youngster, backed by Gainsborough firm Wallrock, experienced steering issues in his first heat and finished 11th overall. In the second heat he took third, and eighth place overall, and he maintained that in heat three to earn pole and then win the B Final.

In the A-Final a spin on the long loose section cost him places but he clawed back to take sixth position. Round three will be held at Pembrey Race Circuit on 10th May.
