DAN Singleton was the man to beat as the ProperlyProtected.co.uk MRO Minitwins hit a wet Snetterton – as Glynn Davies held onto his series lead with a solid points haul.
With 13 points separating him and nearest rival Keith Povah as they arrived at the track, Davies looked to be off to a strong start when he secured pole with a lap almost two and a half seconds quicker than anyone else in qualifying.
But he was unable to convert pole to any wins, however, as Singleton came to the fore in race one, moving into the lead on the third lap and taking the flag by 1.5sec ahead of Davies as Mark Taylor finished third.
Povah had finished down in sixth behind Rookie winner Dan Thomas, but his best was yet to come in race two. Quickly recovering ground, he moved to the front to emerge victorious in a tight race where the top four were covered by a second.
Taylor was second with Davies third, as Singleton missed out on the podium in fourth by a mere tenth of a second. Matt Wetherell was fifth and lead rookie.
If race two was tight at the front, race three was something else, with less than two hundredths of a second denying Povah the win.
After another close battle, Singleton grabbed the win on the run to the line ahead of Povah, giving him a chance to pull back more championship points on Davies, who was fourth behind Taylor.
The final race brought more of the same as again, less than a second covered the top four. Singleton’s efforts were rewarded with a third win by less than a tenth of a second ahead of Davies.
Povah was a further tenth behind, stealing third from Taylor. In the rookie class, Wetherell took his second class win of the day after also taking the spoils in race three.
Davies now has an 11 point lead over Povah on 336 points to 325, while Taylor is third on 250.
