Steven Petch & Michael Wilkinson entered the DMACK Carlisle Stage at the weekend with a great deal of confidence after their past three successive wins.
Typical of the British summer, the rain was pelting down all morning making the driving conditions very wet and slippy, it was a real battle against the elements for all involved. But the guys held their nerve and still managed to put in great performance finishing in 2nd position.
Stephen & Micheal missed out on 1st place by ¾ second to Peter Taylor, a local driver who is somewhat more experienced in a wet forest environment. Callum Black, Stephens biggest competitor so far this season finished in 3rd.
With this result, Stephen moves upto 3rd in the Overall Championship Standings, just 19 points behind 1st placed Callum Black with 3 races remaining.
The next round will be back on Tarmac at the Nicky Grist Stages in Wales on the 8th of july.
