- Croft MSA Formula results amended
- Sennan Fielding declared Round 13 winner, Ricky Collard victor of Round 15
29 JULY, 2015 – The results of last month’s Croft rounds of the MSA Formula Championship have been amended following a meeting yesterday (Tuesday) of the Motor Sports Council National Court. The court was considering an appeal by Fortec Motorsports driver Daniel Ticktum into his exclusion from the results of Round 13, in which he crossed the line first after a final-corner collision with the car of Lando Norris.
Having viewed video evidence and the evidence of both drivers, the MSC National Court confirmed the decision of race stewards and upheld Ticktum’s exclusion. Further, they excluded Ticktum from the results of Rounds 14 and 15, and the appellant was ordered to pay £2000 costs.
Ticktum’s exclusion from the meeting confirms JHR Developments driver Sennan Fielding as the victor of Round 13, ahead of Ricky Collard and Tarun Reddy, with championship leader Collard (TRS Arden) awarded the Round 15 win, with Norris second and Fielding third.
Collard now leads the Ford EcoBoost-powered championship by 25 points from Norris. The series resumes at Snetterton on 8 August.
