14-12-21 Winter League Round 5

Some extremely close racing this week, the difference in best lap times between the majority of the drivers being small.

Karl Norris was top qualifier with 45 laps just two and a half seconds quicker than  Simon Pole.  Chelle Snowden was third with 44 Laps followed by Kayleigh Knight and McKenzie Wallace on 43 and Benn Norris, Dan Stones, Richard Norris and Bob Harley with 42.

Freddie Parker starting from pole position on the grid won the “C” Final with 40 laps, Adam Cowell was second and Mike Simpson third, both drivers on 39 laps. It was good to see Paul Galbraith racing again at the Club.

The “B” Final was a tremendous race to watch, Benn Norris lead the cars away from pole position. Unfortunately Nick Wallace had to retire his car after the first lap leaving the remaining four drivers to battle it out. Fast and consistent driving from all the drivers throughout the rest of the race resulted in just six seconds separating all of them at the finish. Benn was the winner, Bob Harley second, Dan Stones third and Richard Norris fourth.

Just the “A” Final remaining and it did not disappoint. Karl Norris won the race, Simon Pole was a lap down in second with Chelle Snowden, Kayleigh Knight and McKenzie Wallace finishing third, fourth and fifth respectively just four seconds between them. A superb end to the evenings racing. Well done McKenzie!

With five rounds of the league now completed two drivers are still unbeaten, Karl Norris in F1 and Freddie Parker in F3 both scoring the maximum 500 points with Benn Norris just a single point down with 499 in F2 following McKenzie’s 100 points this week.  Just four rounds left to race and with the best six from a possible nine round scores to count we could still see some very close final results.

Next week is the Christmas trophy meeting, don’t forget to pre-book as usual.

Saul Theobold won a keenly contested “C” Final with Euan Lees in second place just over two seconds adrift. Visiting driver Jack Southin was third.

The last race of the evening, the “A” Final was won by Karl Norris being a lap ahead of second place driver Simon Pole, Kayleigh Knight was third, Chelle Snowden fourth, Benn Norris fifth and McKenzie Wallace sixth.

Another exciting evenings racing – Round 5 of the Winter League is next week.
