BEN Higgins enjoyed a superb outing at Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk last weekend after racing to his maiden Legends Cars Championship with allgrowth Ltd and then adding a second win in quick order.

Higgins, from Abermule, charged to a hard-fought success in the event's first race on Saturday afternoon before reaching the top step of the podium once again in race three, the round five final, which took place on Sunday morning, rescheduled after a power-cut at the race track on Saturday evening.

Daniel Pooley drew pole from the grid ballot for Heat One on Saturday and he led away well at the start, before coming under pressure from Jack Parker and Higgins – up from seventh and fourth respectively.

Parker soon grabbed the lead early on lap two and Higgins passed Pooley for second a short while after, with Nathan Anthony then moving into third on lap three.


Into lap five Parker had opened an advantage of 0.9 seconds but Higgins had other ideas and set-up a grandstand lap six finish after taking the lead into the first corner, Riches.

Parker tried to hit back at Agostini but Higgins re-challenged and went on to claim his maiden win by 0.1 seconds from Chris Needham.

After the highs of the earlier race, Higgins experienced the polar opposite at the beginning of Heat Two when a tangle in the mid-pack resulted in his car and Anthony's retiring mere yards from the grid– and also led to a red flag stoppage. 

He hit back in style in the round five final and worked his way through the order and into contention just after mid-distance into second place on the sixth tour and then grabbed the lead before going on to win on lap eight by 0.8 seconds.

County Times:

In the subsequent three contests on Sunday, comprising round six, Higgins finished 11th and fourth in the heats and then back on the podium in third in the round six final to cap a terrific weekend.

He ended the event fourth in the championship standings with one race meeting still to go this season.

The teenager said: "It feels really, really good to be honest. It’s been long coming, last year it was looking like we might get a win a few times but it didn’t happen.

"This year we’ve managed to be on the podium quite a lot, so it’s nice to finally get the win. The competition has just gone up and up, even compared to last year. It’s been a very good weekend, two first places is great for us – Legends are so great.”

The decisive final two rounds of the Legends Cars Championship with allgrowth Ltd will take place over the weekend of November 4/5th at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent, running as part of the annual British Truck Racing Championship ‘Fireworks Finale’ event.
