The start of a new league on a “Bob Harley” built track – could it give him an advantage in the racing?
In the GT12 qualifying Ashley King was quickest after two rounds but Louis Parker went a lap better in round 3 to take pole in the final, Ashley being in second place closely followed by newly promoted Steve Donald in third place.
Darren Ford was the leader in F2 with Stephen Deacon second and Daniel Lacey third.
David Snowden had a commanding lead in F3 over John Stringer in second place, Courtney Orme was third.
The Club Mardave class was a little depleted Mike Simpson being top in F1 ahead of Paul Galbraith.
In F2 Wes Wray was fastest, Alex Forster second and Jenson Wray third.
The Mardave final Paul Galbraith got ahead of pole position driver Mike Simpson but Mike eventually caught up and passed him to take the win. It was a “Team Forster” battle for third and fourth places with Alex getting the upper hand – better watch out though Alex as Harvey is getting quicker every week!
Paul Galbraith won the GT12 C final, Courtney Orme finished in second place after a close race with pole position driver John Stringer, but the top placed driver in F3 was David Snowden who was fifth in the B final.
Matt Popejoy was the quickest driver in the B final but it was Chelle Snowden who won the race with Matt and Daniel Lacey having a great race for second place – it went to Matt by a margin of just over half a second.
A great race to finish the evening followed which saw Louis Parker take an impressive win, Ashley King being second after a close battle with Steve Donald and Darren Ford taking fourth place.
So after round 1 there are four drivers with maximum points in the league – Mike Simpson, Louis Parker, Darren Ford and David Snowden. Can they all retain their 100% record next week?
