Marcus Bradshaw and his Construction team are flying the flag for the Midlands in the Honda Formula 4-stroke championship as the title race begins to hot up.

With over 200,000 people expected in Plymouth this weekend for the latest round, Bradshaw is hoping to continue their assault on the leader board.

With two events gone, Bradshaw is in third place just one point behind the leaders after a third and fourth-placed finish in Tynemouth.

"As we have got ourselves into such a good position, we are looking to win," said Bradshaw, who has returned after a year's sabbatical.

"I was unsure how it would pan out this season but we are starting to find our feet and the beauty of our position is that we are now at the front of the grid. That means you aren't hampered by choppier waters and can rely on a clear run.

"We missed the practice session during the first race [at Tynemouth] and that left us right at the back of the grid.

"It was really rough in the first race but, fortunately we got off to a flier and came out of the first turn several places up.

"The next couple of laps saw us overtaking the fleet one by one. Eventually we were in third place with two laps to go and we were catching second fast. Unfortunately we needed three! And crossed the line just behind the Ebel-sponsored boat."

The Grand Prix of Plymouth will involve rounds five and six of this year's championship. Claygate Bathrooms (41) are a point ahead of both Construction and Ebel with just Cowes and Liverpool on the horizon after this weekend's races.
