DONINGTON OUTRIGHT LAP RECORD SMASHED ON WAY TO ANOTHER VICTORY!
Things could not have gone better for Scott as he qualified the Zig-Zag Mansell Motorsport Benetton on Pole, then secured another emphatic victory in the second round of the 2004 EuroBOSS Championship, setting a another outright lap record this time around the difficult Donington national circuit.

He lapped the 1.96 mile circuit in a time of 55.859 seconds, with an avarage speed of over 126 mph, taking over 1 second of the previous lap record held by Earl Goddard set in Michael Schumacher's 1994 championship winning Benetton.

From the start Mansell held off Zwart into the first corner and then started to put in some awesome laps smashing the lap record four times in the first five laps! Such was his speed, that on lap six he had already caught up with the backmarkers and he proceeded to blast past them on his way to a stunning second victory of the season making it two out of two.

His winning margin over last years Champion, Klaas Zwart, was 27.5 seconds and Scott's average speed over the entire race was over 120 mph!

Scott now leads the championship by 10 points heading into the third round at Brands Hatch which is part of the spectacular CSMA festival on May 22nd/23rd. lap.

Scott Mansell:
"Today was a perfect day for everyone in the team and to have taken pole position, the race win and to have smashed the outright circuit lap record was absolutely brilliant. Donington is a great circuit and to be able to take the craner curves flat, at over 180 mph is an awesome feeling.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Mansell Motorsport for all their hard work in preparing the car and to thank my sponsors Zig-Zag rolling papers, Drayton Manor theme park, Castrol and Living Well Health Club."
