Samuel Harrison will have four chances to overhaul Cam Jackson at Donington this weekend, as both drivers are set to contest both the Historic and Classic Formula Ford championships.
Jackson, driving his Winkelmann, was increasingly challenged by Harrison’s Elden at Cadwell and victory was only assured when Harrison had an off in the last race of the weekend.
Harrison’s cause in Historic will be helped by the continuing absence of Linton Stutely, whose Royale RP3 is still undergoing repairs after an accident at Silverstone. Tom McArthur, another frontrunner, is also sitting out the Donington races, as is 2018 championship challenger Ben Mitchell.
Slightly further down the grid, Scott Rawlinson’s Merlyn is still being rebuilt after a dramatic testing crash on a wet track at Cadwell.
On the Classic side, Jordan Harrison (Lola T540E) will be looking to make up for a recurring suspension problem at Cadwell. Henry Chart’s Van Diemen RF81 blew an engine last time out, but he is back on the entry list and will be in the mix with Jackson.
