Cruel luck ruins Ravenscroft’s Iame Euro Series chances in Castelletto


For the second year running, Clayton Ravenscroft took overall pole for the pre final on Sunday morning at Castelletto in Italy for the second round of the Iame Euro Series against the best in the business, and for the second year running, that is where his luck ran out.


Good speed and skill in the dry, followed by a dominant performance in the wet conditions, yielded two heat wins and two second places on the Saturday and were enough to secure pole going into Sunday morning for the finals.


A loose sprocket carrier hampered his performance in final 1, however, he still managed to secure a fifth place start for the main final.


Sadly an error in parts selection ruined any chance of competing with the front runners. At one point he was dead last, but did manage to salvage 20th place, but this did little to help his championship chances.


Clayton will now look forward to Larkhall in 2 weeks time where he will hope to continue his lead in the Motorsport UK British Championship.
