Donington Park the historic Grand Prix track was the venue for Round 2.For 2010 JDM Allstars chose the Alpine course which consisted of parts of the old Melbourne Loop which was used all the way back in 1938. JDM Allstars round 3 would also be the opening event to launch Donington Park back into the motorsport calendar after its closure in 2009 after its attempt to hold the British F1 GP.
Round 2 was also the debut for Poland’s top two drivers Pawel Trela and Maciej Bochenek from the PFD series. Both new to the series but some series contenders after dominating in Poland this season. With the only one day event in the calendar Qualifying and Battles was packed into one day of action.
Immediately Dan Chapman, Luke Fink, Phil Morrison Pawel Trela and Maciej Bochenek looked on the pace showing great speed through the course. Championship leader Jon Calvert had a huge shunt on his second qualifying run after debuting his new Neuton Tyres S13. Jon was one of several cars that had hard impacts on turn 4 with the wall, which proved that this new alpine course was very demanding under its debut and was the most demanding track on the calendar.
After a gruelling Qualifying session Maciej Bochenek took the top qualifying position .He was closely followed by Luke Fink, Phil Morrison and Dan Chapman all gathering crucial extra qualifying bonus points.
All top four qualifiers then made it to the top 4 where Chapman beat Bochenek and Phil Morrision Beat Luke Fink. Europe’s most successful drift team would have an all Team Driftworks Final. Chapman edged the win after a small mistake from Phil.
After his win Dan Chapman commented “It was amazing to have an all Team Driftworks final and to meet Phil for the first time in the final, I didn’t expect to win. We both agreed full throttle no holding back at the startline, and the fastest man wins, thanks to all my sponsor’s , friends, family and everyone that showed up at JDM Allstars”.
