The track being a similar design to that used last week for Round 1 seemed to suit Simon Pole as he was fastest qualifier and also won the “A” Final for the second week in succession, it was close though with Karl Norris less than two seconds behind and also setting the fastest lap by 1/100th second. Darren Ford finished in third place and Chelle Snowden fourth.
Benn Norris won the “B” Final ahead of Nick Wallace with Mike Simpson in third place.
Ben Theobold finished first in the “C” Final, a lap clear of Kaelin Thompson, Paul Carter and Saul Theobold.
Some close racing, most drivers improving on their personal best number of laps from last week. Is everyone improving or was the track a little easier??????
Simon Pole consolidated his lead in F1 with maximum points, Benn Norris leads F2 with Mckenzie Wallace in second place, Kaelin Thompson is the leader in F3 ahead of Ian Craig – watch out for Ben Theobold next week following his win this week in the C Final.

Ian Craig won the D Final, his car performing well after some attention from Bob Harley. It was good to see new drivers racing, well done to Euan Lees on taking second place, commiserations to Keisha Deacon as her car failed to move, better luck next time. Does she need to change her pit crew Stephen?

Nick Wallace and Simon Pole dominated the B Final, a very close race between these two with Nick winning by less than half a second, Mike Simpson was third.

A great end to the evening.
The first meeting since the lockdown with the track now back at the full six carpets wide. It was great to be racing again and as usual with three qualifying rounds and a final we had some very competitive racing.
Chelle Snowden was top qualifier followed by Karl Norris, Darren Ford, Kayleigh Knight and Bob Harley.
The “C” Final was won by Kaelin Thompson with 34 laps, a lap ahead of Paul Dewsnap.
In the “B” Final Stephen Deacon was the quickest driver but it was Nick Wallace who won the race with 39 laps after a very close battle with Stephen who took second place being less than a second adrift and Benn Norris who was third.
The A Final produced a most exciting finish to the evening. Chelle Snowden starting from pole position on the grid made a good start, being chased by Karl Norris and Darren Ford who moved up into second place ahead of Karl. With the retirement of Chelle on lap 34 Darren took the lead and seemed to have the race won. However a slight error on lap 36 and Karl went through into the lead, going on to win by the narrowest of margins, Darren taking second place, Kayleigh Knight third and Bob Harley fourth.
