Tuesday 26th November – Autumn League Round 6 – Louis storms the “A” Final
Starting from second position on the grid behind his dad Richard, Louis put in a stunning performance to win the “A” final, setting the fastest lap time along the way. Richard finished in second position with Darren Ford third. Looks like Louis has taken over as the number one driver in “Team Parker”, no team orders here.
Michelle Snowden took maximum points in division 2, winning the “B” final by two laps, Paul Galbraith and Bob Harley had a very close race for second position with Bob eventually gaining the upper hand to cross the finishing line 1 second clear of Paul who was third.
In division 3 Roy Matthews closed in on the league leader Courtney Orme with another maximum points, Courtney was second in the “C” final after being the slowest qualifier and Alwyn Hodges was third.
Just two more rounds to go in the autumn league!

Tuesday 5th November – Autumn League Round 4
Bonfire night and there were certainly some fireworks on the track, especially in the “A” and “B” finals. James Hart was on pole for the “A” final with Daniel Williams car 2 and Richard Parker car 3. James found himself down in fifth position after three laps with Louis Parker in the lead. This was soon to change as Richard went to the front with Daniel chasing. Some excellent close racing then followed between the first three drivers with James regaining the lead on lap 20 only for Richard to overtake him on lap 22. In the end it was James who took the lead on lap 31 and held on to win from Richard second and Daniel third – a great race!
The “B” final it was Michelle Snowden who won by 2 laps ahead of Paul Galbraith and Robert Hambridge who were neck and neck throughout the race with Paul crossing the finishing line 2 seconds ahead of Robert.
Mike Simpson won the “C” final after being the slowest qualifier of the evening, a very good race by Joshua Galbraith earned him second place with Roy Matthews third.
