Young Maltese driver Rodren Vella has won the second race at Anglesey Coastal Circuit in Wales this afternoon leading the race from the second lap to the finish. Rodren and his team displayed the “visitMALTA.com” logo on their T-shirts.

Rodren started from the front row of the grid in second place as a result of his 9th finishing position in the first race. The order of the first 10 finishers in the first race is reversed in the second race.

Rodren must have put together all that he had learnt a year ago when he raced in Wales for the first time, and this time he succeeded to climb on the top step of the podium, taking advantage of his front running position.

He finished the 11-lap race in 15 minutes 24.89 seconds at an average speed of 66.36 miles per hour. He recorded his best lap of 1 minute 22.83 seconds at a speed of 67.37 mph.

Bernard Galea drove another determined race and finished in an excellent 4th position after dropping to the 10th position by the end of the first lap of the second race. Bernard gained the 4th position in lap 9 and succeeded to defend his position to the finish.

In the first race Bernard drove an excellent race finishing in the 2nd position just 1.48 seconds behind race winner Mark Higginson, but he was penalized 10 seconds for a false start, as a result of which he ended in the 4th place.
