Reed won from Adam Knight also in an Exige V6 and Marcus Jewell in the Lotus 2-Eleven completing a track-club 1-2-3.

Championship leader Ken Savage was 4th surviving initial contact with Adam Gore and Adam Knight and doing a solid job with a compromised car suffering side panel damage and restricted air flow.

Reed who is hoping to graduate to GT racing in 2016 dominated the weekend timing his pole run in changing conditions perfectly and managing a tyre issue towards the end of the race.  He was delighted with his result.  track-club’s Stephen Docherty commented “Alex seems to be driving better every time he gets in a car at the moment.  He’s very focused, takes his driving seriously and is probably now the quickest driver on the grid.  This is his first season full seasons racing and there’s a lot more to come from him”.

The series now moves on to the final round at Snetterton in October where the championship title will be decided.
