2018 Season

The calendar, dates and everything you need to know about the new season


Foster streaked away from pole position at the start, initially leading from Patrick Kibble (TCR) and Adam Smalley (Elite Motorsport). His margin was up to 1.2 seconds by lap three as a furious scrap erupted behind him over the remaining podium positions.

Kibble had dropped back to sixth by this point, behind Fin Green (Elite), Ruben Del Sarte (TCR), Adam Smalley (Elite) and Luke Browning (Richardson Racing) in second to fifth places. Little separated this group for the remainder of the race, with Smalley hauling his way up to second over the following laps.

Fin Green was on course for third until an incident on the final lap saw him spin out and rejoin down in 13th, meaning Kibble would cross the line third to complete the podium, ahead of Richardson Racing’s James Taylor, Browining and Del Sarte.

Lorcan Hanafin (Douglas Motorsport), Tom Emson (Elite Motorsport), Gustav Burton (Douglas Motorsport) and Ethan Hawkey (TCR) filled positions seven, eight, nine and 10 at the flag, however a post-race penalty of five seconds for Hanafin due to track-limits violations mean the official results see Emson and Burton in seventh and eighth, ahead of Hanafin and Hawkey in ninth and 10th.
