In race one Liam made a good start, passing one car around the first corner. The train of Mazdas then went along Park straight on the narrow Lincolnshire circuit, Liam sat in fourth place for a few laps applying the pressure to the car in front until eventually he got through and finished in a very creditable third place and another podium finish .

In race two on a wet and damp track Liam got a reasonable start and was in third place for the first half of the race before 
again applying enough pressure to the cars in 
front and eventually found a way past to the front of the race.
