Some great racing in the qualifying rounds, Richard Parker being fastest on 34 laps with Lee Bishop and Mike Simpson both two laps down.
In division 2 things were very close between Jenson Butlin and Jake Galbraith, in the end both finished on 30 laps with less than two seconds between them.

The finals did not disappoint with a tremendously close race for second place in the “B” final between Jake and Joshua Galbraith, both finished on 26 laps with Joshua 0.13 seconds ahead – no Galbraith team orders here!
In the “A” final Richard Parker got away to a good start from pole position and soon pulled away from the rest of the field, Lee Bishop was second off the start grid but Paul Galbraith and Mike Simpson soon got past him. Lee chased hard for the remainder of the race but was unable to make up ground and had to settle for fourth place. Richard had a comfortable win, Mike was second and Paul third. A great drive from Jenson Butlin extended his lead in division 2.

GT12 Class

James Hart was again in invincible form on a fast and flowing track design, in the qualifying Darren Ford and David Simpson were closely matched, it was Darren who qualified in second place behind James with David third just 2 seconds adrift.
Everyone was treated to a great “A” final with all the cars lapping at great speed, James won with 38 laps, behind him Darren and David had a battle for second place and after several changes of running order David crossed the line just 0.36 seconds ahead of Darren. It does not get much more exciting than this!

Chelle Snowden won the “B” final ahead of Daniel Williams and Nick Bruty was third to get another maximum points to add to the one he got in round 1.
