Jordan Galbraith storms to victory in the V12 Mardave Final with Paul Galbraith second
Louis Parker made a great start to the evening with an almost faultless drive in round 1 setting what turned out to be the best qualifying time to assure him of pole position in the A Final. Gavin Maciver was in second place after round 1 followed by David Simpson and Matt Popejoy. In round 2 Chelle Snowden moved up into fourth position ahead of Matt. David Simpson had a good drive in round 3 to claim second place on the A Final grid by just 0.64 seconds from Gavin in third spot.
In the Club Mardave class Mike Simpson was quickest in round 1 followed by Paul Galbraith and Jordan Galbraith. In round 2 Team Galbraith stepped up the pace with Paul winning and Jordan in second place just 2 seconds slower. Neither driver improved their time in round 3 so Paul took pole in the final, Jordan second place, Mike third and Joshua Galbraith fourth.
In the mardave final Jordan Galbraith made a tremendous start getting ahead of his dad Paul on the first lap and proved uncatchable setting a fast pace recording the fastest lap time along the way to a fine victory. Behind him Paul Galbraith and Mike Simpson were fighting it out for second place right to the end of the race, Paul taking second just 0.63 seconds ahead. To complete an excellent evening Joshua Galbraith took fourth place. Looks like “Team Galbraith” are back on a winning streak – can they maintain momentum next week?
The GT12 C Final was next with Nick Wallace winning by 4 laps from Courtney Orme, Alwyn Hodges being a further 2 laps adrift.
The GT12 B Final was keenly contested between Chelle Snowden and Matt Popejoy, Matt set some faster lap times but Chelle was consistently quick to take the win with Matt Second and Scott Lewis third.
The GT12 A Final had the makings of a great race and we were not to be disappointed. Louis Parker made a good start from pole and put in some exceptionally quick laps including the fastest of the evening to take a well deserved win. Behind him David Simpson and Gavin Maciver were having their own contest for second and third places, exciting to watch there was little to separate them with David eventually being first across the finishing line ahead of Gavin.
After the racing the trophies were presented by the club vice chairman Chelle Snowden.
A good evenings racing.
