Lynch adds to impressive win record at Lydden Hill

Lydden Hill, England (September 12th, 2018) – Westhoughton-based Tony made the long trip to the Kent circuit in confident mood after a fine campaign to date at the wheel of his Lucas Oil Team Geriatric-run Ford KA.

However, with a bumper Supermodified field – boosted by a number of guest entries keen to take part in a meeting being held in memory of former racer Ryan Lawford – Tony was also well aware that he couldn’t afford to take it easy in his quest to pick up more valuable championship points.

Second behind guest racer Tristan Ovenden in the opening two heats of the weekend, Tony then secured victory in heat three which ensured a front row start for the all important points-scoring final.

Aware that he would struggle to match Ovenden’s rear-wheel drive car off the line, Tony took the decision to take the longer joker lap at the first available opportunity and it would prove to be the correct call as a series of quick laps ensured that when Ovenden took the joker on the final lap, he rejoined behind the KA.

It meant a fifth victory of the campaign to further strengthen his position at the head of the Supermodified standings.

Tony would then finish second to Ovenden in a special non-points scoring Superfinal dedicated to Lawford, who passed away back in 2013.

“It was a great weekend on track and to come away from it with another win is fantastic for the whole team,” Lynch said. “We knew going to Lydden Hill that we faced a tricky weekend because of the various guest drivers who were joining the grid from both the UK and Europe, and so it proved.
