Senior wins for Pullinger and Fawcett.

Barrie Pullinger and John Stewart shared the victories in the penultimate round of the 2010 Super One Senior Rotax Championship at Shenington as Tom Fawcett eased towards the 2010 title.
Tom Fawcett took another giant step towards this year's ABkC Super One Senior Rotax Championship after two more solid finishes in the penultimate round of the series at Shenington near Banbury.

A pair of fifth place finishes in the two point scoring finals at the venerable Shenington circuit gives Fawcett an impressive 47 point lead over Shaun Slavin before dropped scores are taken into account. With only the final round of the championship at 3 Sisters near Wigan yet to come Slavin and Jake Ball, who lies third in the points table four points behind Fawcett, will need a major slice of luck to stand any chance of wresting the title away from Fawcett.

In the first final Barrie Pullinger got the better of John Stewart in the closing stages after a lengthy duel to take his first win of the season by nine hundredths of a second with O-Plate winner Matthew Mason a strong third after a poor start and Daniel Graham fourth.

Fawcett started the race from pole but was bustled back to sixth on the opening lap, thereafter taking a sensibly cautious approach to his fightback, passing early leader Ball with a handful of laps remaining to take fifth.

Pullinger led the start of the second final from pole position but dropped back to sixth when Mason muscled through on lap three. Mason's lead lasted less than two laps before Stewart forced his way to the front, maintaining his lead for the remaining 18 laps to take his first final win of the year by just seventeen hundredths.

Mason tailed Stewart throughout but couldn't break the leader down while Ball and Pullinger completed the top four.

Once again Fawcett tried to minimise the risks but still plucked fifth away from Graham on the penultimate tour.

Slavin couldn't capitalise on Fawcett's average (for him) scoring and finished the two finals in 13th and 14th places.
