Mike Simpson led the mix of V12 and GT12 cars away from pole position in the “A” final but by lap 12 Paul Galbraith had fought his way up to second place from the back of the field. For the next 13 laps these two cars were only a short distance apart until Paul took the lead on lap 26 and went on to win with 39 laps – great drive Paul. Mike was second on 38 laps and Alister Hart in his GT12 took third place on 32 laps.
Mitch Howard and Nick Bruty were very evenly matched in the GT12 “B” Final, both lapping quickly, but a mechanical problem put Nick out of contention leaving Matt Popejoy to take second place with a great performance, Mitch was the winner with 40 laps.
The last race was the GT12 “A” Final and Darren Ford stormed into the lead on lap 1 then Gavin Maciver overtook him on lap 2 only for Darren to retake the lead on lap 5 with pole position driver James Hart moving up into second position. Everyone was the treated to a fantastic display of driving by Darren and James as James caught up and attempted to get ahead of Darren. On lap 22 he took the lead and put in some very fast laps to win with 48 laps, Darren was second on 46 laps ahead of Gavin Maciver also with 46 laps. Another very exciting race!
We look forward to a great final round of the league next week.
