4th win for Stefan Hodgetts

Jun 24th, 2007

Stefan Hodgetts clinched his fourth successive ELF Renault Clio Cup win with a lights-to-flag victory in round five at Oulton Park on Sunday.


A capacity grid of 32 cars began the race at the 2.23-mile Cheshire venue and intermittent rain showers meant the majority started the race on wet weather tyres.

It was a tight start but all cars safely negotiated the tight first corner with Hodgetts just holding off the fast-starting Ed Pead. Total Control Racing’s Jonathan Fildes also got away from the line well, passing Michael Doyle and challenging Martin Byford for third place.

Hodgetts took the chequered flag with a lead of 1.537s and has opened a 10 point gap at the top of the drivers’ standings.

Commenting on a fourth successive victory, Hodgetts said: “Losing laps to the safety car doesn’t bother me because I’m still on the top step of the podium. I’ve had four wins but that’s not enough for me, I still want more. I’ll keep working hard myself and with the team and hopefully have more days like this.”

Round six of the ELF Renault Clio Cup takes place at Donington Park National circuit on 14th/15th July.
