Jonny McMullan continues rich form with Van Diemen double

By Sammy Hamill

Jonny McMullan rounded out a great Easter with a double win in the Formula Ford SuperSeries at Oulton Park.

The Newtownabbey driver followed up his second and third in the BRSCC National championship at Silverstone on Sunday by moving on to Oulton where he qualified his Van Diemen on pole position for both races. He went on to beat Martin Short to the chequered flag each time.

It means that McMullan has scored three wins, a second and a third in his six races since being chosen to drive the Motorsport Ireland car as Young Driver of the Year for 2014.

Adam Carroll followed up his victory in round one of the British GT championship at the Cheshire track by finishing sixth in round two in the FF Corse team's Ferrari 458. Carroll and co-driver Gary Eastwood are now second in the series behind the Aston Martin pairing of Rory Butcher and Liam Griffin.

Andrew Watson, making his debut for the Von Ryan McLaren team, crashed out of race one but he and Ross Wylie picked up their first points with ninth place in race two.

In Japan, Richard Lyons collected a podium finish for the Hitotsuyama Audi team in the first round of the Super GT 300 series, he and co-driver Tomonobu Fujii finishing third.
