Race 4 – Position DNF

A second Qualifying session on Sunday gave Morcom the chance to reset his grid position, but unfortunately struggles with his brakes saw him start Race 2 in P21.

Morcom had a great start to the race, and picked off several positions in the opening laps and reached P15.

Unfortunately Morcom was caught up in a Pile Up on Turn 3 in the mid-point of the Race, and was hit from both the back and front.

The clash suspended the Race and Morcom’s Car was towed from the track causing a DNF Result.

“I HAD GOOD START ON SUNDAY AND WAS MOVING FORWARD PLACE BY PLACE UP TO 15TH BEFORE I GOT TANGLED UP IN SOMEONE ELSE’S ACCIDENT, UNFORTUNATELY NOW WE HAVE A HEAVILY DAMAGED CAR AND WILL NEED TO WORK HARD TO FIX IT.”
