26-06-18 Summer League Round 4

After racing anti-clockwise last week drivers had a chance to fully unwind, no corner dots this week either for a change.

Some keen competition in the qualifying with Karl Norris taking the top spot closely followed by Darren Ford and Chelle Snowden
Jordan Leavis was the highest placed F2 driver being fourth overall, Bob Harris was having a great evening being second F2 keeping Guy Rogers at bay by just 6/100th second.
Benn Norris was the top F3 driver, Jack Walsh was second and Courtney Orme third.
The mardave class was a head to head between Alex and Harvey Forster with Alex taking the number one spot.

The mardave final was first up, combined with the GT12 D Final. A real battle this to determine who would be the top “Team Forster” driver this week. The result was close – Alex being the winner and Harvey finishing two seconds behind and setting the quickest laptime. Freddie Parker took third place.

The GT12 C final saw some good driving, Benn Norris, Jack Walsh and Courtney Orme were all going well but at the finish Benn was the winner, Jack finishing just a couple of seconds behind and Courtney taking third place.

Bob Harris had the advantage of pole position in the B final but things all went awry, finding himself in third place by the end of the first lap with Guy Rogers leading and Mike Simpson in second place. Mike moved into the lead on lap 5 and with all four drivers lapping within a few hundredths of a second of one another who had the cleanest run would decide the result.
In the end Mike was the winner, Bob fought back into second place, Kayleigh Knight taking third.

Just the A final left and what a great race it was to watch, some superb driving and a very close finish, Karl Norris winning with Darren Ford just five seconds behind and Chelle Snowden in third place, all three drivers on the same lap. Jordan Leavis took fourth place just a lap down to take the lead in F2.
