Daniel Clark said: "To be honest we weren’t sure we’d do this weekend as we’ve had such a bad year. Last year the car we had was set up by Colin Smart and we never changed it all year, it worked perfectly.

"When the new car this year got bent, we struggled to get it working how we wanted and it’s been like that all season.

"We changed lots of things every race this weekend, and it’s amazing to take a win.

"We’ve ordered a new chassis for next year, so the plan is to get some testing in and be back stronger"
