SHOWING his liking for the 1.6-mile circuit, Dan Babbs (Chelmer CC) led home a four-man break to win the sixth round of Ford CC’s Go-Race Series at the Dunton Engineering Centre in Essex.
The Chelmsford 36-year-old opened up a two-second gap over veteran Mick Bath (API-Metrow) in the sprint to secure his fourth victory of the series with Jason Fitchew (Ford CC), who had won the five-lap prime, in third place.
The three went clear with Tim Pettit (Essex Roads CC) shortly after the prime sprint and, in a shortened race due to the wet conditions, lapped consistently in around four minutes to build up a lead of well over a minute going into the final two laps.
