A thrilling final round of the Spring League with some of the results deciding the trophy winners in each division.
Steve Donald qualified for pole position in the GT12 A final giving him an advantage over Ashley King in second place on the grid which could prove critical as both drivers were tied for second place in the league. Karl Norris, Dan Sheppard, Mark Deacon and Darren Ford took the remaining A final places with Mark in fifth place on the grid being “quietly confident” of a good result.
In the club mardave class Roy Matthews was quickest in qualifying by just under a second ahead of league leader Harvey Forster with Nathan Marshall in third place.
Things were looking good for Roy Matthews as he was in the lead at the halfway point in the mardave final until an electrical failure lost him over a minute leaving Harvey and Nathan to fight it out for the win. It was close but Nathan was first to the finish to win the race, Harvey was second with Roy six laps down in third place.
The GT12 C final saw a good standard of driving with the lead changing places several times during the race. Kayleigh Knight was the eventual winner after a hard fought race with Jack Walsh. Alex Forster took an excellent third place.
Jordan Leavis won the B final with Chelle Snowden second and Bob Harley third.
The final race of the evening, the GT12 A final would decide the second and third place league trophies and what a great race it turned out to be. Steve Donald lost his pole position advantage on lap one when Ashley took the lead and Mark Deacon also made a great start. A fantastic race this run at a very fast pace with Karl Norris setting the quickest lap-time . It was Ashley who was first to the finish taking a great win for the second week in succession, Steve finished in second place and Karl third, all three drivers on the same lap. Mark Deacon, Darren Ford and Dan Sheppard finished fourth, fifth and sixth respectively, all being a lap down on the leader.
A great end to the Spring League.
Next Tuesday 1st May is an ordinary clubnight with a team relay on Tuesday 8th May.
Congratulations to the league trophy winners.
