Sheffield Brothers Justin and Stefan Wilson made the biggest gains this weekend in the Brits On Pole All-Star League, with both performing well on the street circuit in Toronto, Canada.

Big brother Justin took fifth in the IndyCar race on Sunday, while younger sibling Stefan went one place better in the Indy lights race the previous day.

The results catapult Stefan into the midfield and move Justin up to fourth at the expense of Riki Christodoulou, James Walker and on-track rival Dan Wheldon.

The All-Star League uses it own points system in an attempt to equalise performances across a number of different race series, which is why Wheldon remains ahead of Wilson in the official IndyCar standings where his greater consistency trumps Wilson’s win and podium.

Elsewhere, a disappointing fifth in the Star Mazda Iowa race did no damage to Adam Christodoulou’s third-place standing, while Dario Franchitti’s win in Toronto helped him close the gap to Jenson Button at the top of the table.

The top five is now Button on 680 ahead of Franchitti with 570, while Adam Christodoulou has 275 points, Wilson 200 and Wheldon 190. Behind Walker and Riki Christodoulou, the top 10 is rounded out by Richard Kent – who failed to score in Iowa – Oliver Turvey and Nick Tandy.

Lewis Hamilton, Pippa Mann, Martin Plowman, Ali Jackson and Mike Conway were also in action, but none of them managed a top eight finish and therefore none scored points.
