Shaw Seizes Victory in 2011 St Mary’s Trophy

Richard Shaw anchored a brilliant overall win in the 2011 St Mary’s Trophy with victory on the road in Sunday’s second instalment. After the flag dropped it was James Wood in the Ford Galaxie 500 in which Paul Radisich won yesterday who made the initial break, only to get jumped by Shaw’s BMW and Nick Swift’s Mini. Wood briefly regained the lead on the run to Madgwick for the first time, Detroit firepower outgunning European four-bangers, but Shaw wasn’t to be denied. He moved into first place on the third tour and proceeded to leave the warring Wood and Swift behind at a scorching rate. At half-distance in the 25-minute thrash he held a lead of 7.4-seconds as Wood gradually eked out a few car lengths from Swift. Shaw crossed the line some 12.8-seconds ahead of Wood, and with team-mate Jackie Oliver having finished second on Saturday, the BMW duo claimed outright honours. Victory was especially sweet for former F1 racer and Le Mans winner Oliver: he has chased a St Mary’s Trophy win for the past decade, having finished second three times.
