James Drew-Williams from Downham scored his best race results of his career with two second places at Rockingham Motor Speedway near Corby in the opening round of the Monoposto Tiedeman Trophy.

James qualified for the first race in third place, but got the lead into the first corner, as pole sitter Cato Paulson bogged down and dropped to the back of the field.

He knew he had to build as big a gap as possible at Paulson and was very quick around this circuit. Williams was eventually caught and passed on the last lap but one, but he was able to hold second place to the finish.

Race two followed a similar script, with James getting a good start and Paulson getting a poor start, and held the lead until four laps from the end, before Paulson found his way past. Williams dropped to third, but was reinstated to second after the race after the second place finisher Omar Gazzaz was given a 10 second penalty for gaining an unfair advantage.
