McCaig and Noble Take Dramatic Win At Round Four Of 2017 Henderson Insurance Broker LMP3 Cup Championship (21.05.17)

The #79 Nielsen Racing Ecurie Ecosse entry piloted by Alasdair McCaig and Colin Noble snatched a dramatic win in the closing laps of Round 4 of the 2017 Henderson Insurance Brokers LMP3 Cup Championship after Jamie Spence, driving the sister #23 Nielsen Racing entry went into the gravel at Stirlings following a puncture. The resulting obstruction brought out the red flag with six minutes to go.

Second across the line was the #3 United Autosports entry driven by Tony Wells and Matt Bell with Bell bring the car home.

Taking the final step of the podium was the #72 Douglas Motorsports entry, driven by Mike Newbould and Tom Randle.

The race had already endured a safety car period after CJ Wilson, driving the #2 United Autosports entry, also had an off at Stirlings. Wilson, by his own admittance, had had very little running time in the Ligier JS P3 prior to the the race but managed to recover the car back to the garage and rejoin the race, albeit some four laps behind the leaders. The #2 car did, however, finish seventh, picking up valuable points.

The result means that McCaig and Noble have increased their lead at the top of the standings, ahead of rounds five and six at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on June 10 -11.
