McLoughlin heads to home race on top.

Formula Renault UK Championship leader Mark McLoughlin (Milton Keynes) heads to his home circuit of Silverstone this weekend, 2nd/3rd June, aiming to consolidate his points advantage over his rivals.

McLoughlin and his team, Paston Racing, lead the championship after inheriting victory in the latest round at Thruxton where Robert Bell (Newcastle-upon-Tyne) and Danny Watts (Northampton) were excluded from first and second positions when post-race checks found their cars did not comply with the technical regulations.

Both their teams, Motaworld Racing and Fortec Motorsport, have appealed the exclusions and an MSA hearing will decide whether or not to reinstate them. Whatever the outcome, McLoughlin says: "One victory will not be enough to win this title. As far as the team and I are concerned, we have to go out and win as many races as possible."
