Daire got of the line and held station in second, after lap 3, he took the lead into Redgate Corner. Stretching his lead entertaining at The Old Hairpin the car stepped out on debris on the track demoting Daire to 3rd with 2 laps to go. With a brave move around the Craner Curves he took 2nd. As the field bunched on the last lap, Daire tried a move around the outside on the final corner to cross the line 0.03 behind the leader in 2nd confirmed with a phto on the finish line.

Race 2 Daire started 3rd, after getting a good start and challenging for first the gap narrowed and wisely settled for 3rd. He was promoted to 2nd when his main revival made an unforced error. Over the course of the next few laps Daire tried to take the lead until he was pushed onto the grass demoting him to 3rd. With a large gap to 2nd he settle for 3rd.
