After some fantastic testing at Bayford Meadows yesterday by Jake Gillett, Jack Clegg and Luke Whitehead we had high hopes for the teams first MSA race. Jake managed to set a lap time 3/100ths of a second quicker in practice than the new cadet lap record set in the race on Sunday and Luke set a time just over 2/10ths off the same record with Jack also setting a personal best lap time on his Clubman engine.
For race day we had two drivers in the awning, Jake and Jack. Both boys showed the form they had yesterday was no coincidence with them qualifying in the top 3 for Jake and just outside the top 10 for Jack, out of 30 drivers.
They drove their hearts out all day in the heats with some great finishing positions including a 2nd place for Jake. Jack made it through to the B Final and had to finish in the top 4 to qualify for the A final, he drove the best we have ever seen and came home in 3rd place. So both boys qualified for the A final. Throughout the whole of the final race, both boys battled hard and gave the opposition a taste of what the future holds.
A big thanks to all the team for making this a really enjoyable weekend and all your hard work is paying dividends, the results are coming fast……….Next race F6 for Joel Saunders at Buckmore Park.
