A superb start to the first league of 2019 on a fast track layout with drivers going wheel to wheel producing some exciting racing and very close finishes.
“Team Norris” had an excellent evening with Karl winning the A Final to be the F1 league leader, Kayleigh Knight was second in the B Final and leads the F2 league, Benn Norris won the C final and was the best placed junior driver. Well done! – no pressure next week in round two!!!!
Ashley King started from pole position in the A final and despite setting the fastest lap had to settle for third place behind Steve Donald who was second after they had a titanic battle which was great to watch. Advantage Steve after round 1, can Ashley get his revenge next week?????
The B Final also produced a very close result with just over two seconds separating the first thee drivers. Guy Rogers was the winner followed by Kayleigh Knight and Mike Simpson.
In the C final Benn Norris lapped all the other drivers to win, Adam Hancock was second and leads the F3 League, Paul Carter finished in third place.
Paul Dewsnap won the D Final, Jack Walker took second place and Phil Draycott third.
A very enjoyable evening and it was good to see several new members racing.
Many thanks to Courtney Orme at race control and Bob Harley for the vacuuming of the carpets before the start of the racing.
Looking forward to round two of the league next week.
