Spalding optometrist Andy Molson continues his campaign in the Caterham Graduates Racing Club event
Andy Molsom retained second spot in the championship after the Caterham Graduates Racing Club re-convened at Cadwell Park near Louth.
Qualifying on the Saturday went without a hitch for the Spalding optometrist who finished second ahead of both of Sunday's races.
However, as the lights went out for the start of the first 20-minute race around the undulating tarmac of Cadwell Park, Molsom got too much wheel-spin and dropped a place before the first corner.
The following lap he ensured he got a good exit onto the Park Straight and, using the slipstream, passed Kevin Barrett to regain second place.
By this time, Max Haynes had already got a three-second advantage and Molsom couldn't catch the leader, finishing second but he had pulled an eight-second advantage over third place.
Molsom commented: "I have struggled getting this car off the line without too much wheel-spin, so that made my job harder.
"Unfortunately, Haynes was too good for me to make an impact and second place was the best I could achieve.”
The longer 25-minute race at 2pm had Molsom concerned about the start, but he didn’t need to worry as he got a blinding opening, immediately taking the lead of the race with the rest of the pack falling in behind.
The lead was short-lived though with Haynes slipstreaming him down Park Straight to take over the lead.
Molsom pushed but had no answer for the rapid Haynes. Instead, a race-long battle of wits with Barrett for second on the road took place.
Molsom ensured he had a great exit onto both straights every lap, keeping second place at the chequered flag.
He added: "The second race was more tactical.
"I got a great start – the first time in this car, but Haynes was able to drive away again so second place was again the best I could hope for.
"The car behaved impeccably due to the attention by Pete and Ryan of 7 Works Automotive from Biggleswade."
The next round is on June 4-5 at Knockhill in Scotland.
