Glover Trophy 2011

Middlehurst dominates in Glover Trophy race

Andy Middlehurst dominated the Glover Trophy race for 1.5-litre Grand Prix and Tasman cars aboard his ex-Jim Clark Lotus 25. The former works Nissan BTCC driver never put a wheel wrong in tricky conditions as he streaked into the lead from the front row and proceeded to reel off hot laps of metronymic consistency. By the end of the first lap he was in front by 7.3-seconds and a staggering 30-seconds ahead at half-distance. The battle for second place was far less clear cut. Lord Drayson, veteran challenger Alan Baillie, Dan Collins, Mark Piercy and Sid Hoole ran together in a five-car train, with Drayson eventually making a break for it to make it a Lotus one-two. Collins understeered into the gravel trap at Lavant corner in the dying stages which allowed Baillie to eek out a slender gap to his pursuers to take third spot at the flag.
