Guilsfield racing driver Ben Power scored another race victory in the MRF National Legends Car Championship at the Rockingham circuit in Northamptonshire, to set up a final-round decider at Brands Hatch.

Power, aged 27, boosted his points tally with several high-place finishes in other races. The race win was his 14th of the season.

He also overcame some setbacks - he avoided an accident in race one and had to fight back from last to 11th, while a bad tyre choice in Sunday’s second race saw him finish 9th.

“It was a very mixed weekend,” said Power. “The main thing is the title race is still wide open and it will be decided at Brands Hatch – a great venue for the grand finale.”

The final round takes place on November 4-5.

Guttercrest Racing is backed by the family-owned aluminium guttering company Guttercrest, based in Oswestry. The team has further support from Cardiff-based PR and communications consultancy Weltch Media.

Provisional points standings: 1, 04 John Mickel – 6915pts; 2, 55 Ben Power – 6705pts; 3, 66 Steve Whitelegg – 5855; 4, 13 Jack Parker – 5585pts; 5, 51 Paul Simmons – 5055pts.
