Another good evenings racing, with the hot weather together with school summer holidays affecting the number of drivers racing and only two more rounds now remaining in the summer league after this week, the scene is set for some very close results.
In the V12 Mardave class Harvey and Alex Forster both have a chance of winning the league.
In the GT12 class Karl Norris only requires one more win in F1 to achieve a 100% record, leaving Darren Ford, Bob Harley and Chelle Snowden to fight it out for the second and third place trophies.
Dan Sheppard or Jordan Leavis both still have the opportunity to win the F2 league trophy with Mike Simpson, Kayleigh Knight, Guy Rogers and Bob Harris all in contention for third place.
In F2 Benn Norris is looking to get 100% similar to his dad Karl, Courtney Orme, James Walker and Jack Walsh need good performances in the remaining rounds to improve their chances of taking second and third places.
Remember it is the best six from a possible nine weeks to count.
An ordinary clubnight with no league points at stake this week gave the opportunity for drivers to experiment with different car set-up’s before next weeks round 7 of the summer league.
Some close results in the finals despite the low number of drivers.
James Hart finished ahead of Karl Norris in the A final, both drivers on 38 laps.
Kayleigh Knight won the B final from the back of the start grid with all three drivers on 33 laps.
Jack Walsh was the C final winner completing 28 laps.
Many thanks to everyone who helped set up and store away the track equipment.
Three rounds of qualifying and a final as usual this week.
In the GT12 class James Hart was top qualifier with 37 laps followed by Ashley King, Steve Donald, Karl Norris and visiting driver Leigh Dibble all on 36 laps.
Jordan Leavis was the best in F2 on 35 laps being a lap clear of Dan Sheppard in second place, Guy Rogers was third with 33 laps.
Benn Norris was quickest in F3 with 30 laps, Jack Walsh was second on the same lap and Courtney Orme third with 28 laps.
With only two cars in V12 Mardave class this week it was a “Team Forster” challenge, Alex Forster gaining the initial advantage by qualifying a lap ahead of Harvey. Come on you Mardave drivers – lets have more of you racing next week!
In the first race Courtney Orme starting from pole position on the grid built up an early lead and seemed to have the race in the bag until his car lost grip due to his tyres being worn out – James Walker quickly moved up into the lead to win the race. There was a great battle throughout the race for second place between the two Mardave drivers, Harvey Forster finishing just 1.53 seconds ahead of his brother Alex – well done Harvey.
Kayleigh Knight started from pole in the GT12 C final with Benn Norris moving up into second place on the first lap. A good race this with all the drivers evenly matched for speed, Mike Simpson moved back up into second place and eventually took the lead, overtaking Kayleigh after many laps of very close racing to take the win.
Jordan Leavis had a superb drive in the B Final to win , Darren Ford was second and Dan Sheppard took third place. Looking forward to an exciting remaining three rounds of the league to decide the F2 league winner.
James Hart won the A Final from pole at a very fast pace, Leigh Dibble was second , Ashley King third, league leader Karl Norris fourth with Steve Donald fifth.
The thirteen drivers present were rewarded with a great evenings racing whilst also keeping track of the England football teams progress on mobiles and tablets during their world cup match win on penalties.
