Sunday the 24th June was the 4th round of the Summer Championship at Bayford Meadows.
With four drivers in the awning, Liam Carter and Patrick Kibble in Honda Clubman and Luke Whitehead and Charlie Oliver in Honda Cadet we were confident of some great racing and possible podiums.
After timed qualifying and all the heats, Patrick was tostart the final in 3rd with Liam in 5th. We had no idea what a nail biting race was to ensue. There were four drivers in contention for the podium after only 2 laps, with Liam and Patrick right in amongst the battle. First place swapped around between the drivers so many times it was incredible, Liam took the lead before the last lap but was overtaken down the main straight, he eventually took first place back before the flag with Patrick always in contention for the win and running second most laps, coming home in third. Some great driving boys, you should be proud!
In the Honda Cadets, Luke and Charlie qualified in 2nd and 4th respectively. On the ill favoured outside for the first turn, both boys were squeezed out and dropped back to mid pack, but they both dug deep and Luke managed to finish 3rd with Charlie coming back to 6th. In the second heat an over zealous start from a fellow racer saw Luke and the driver behind get loaded up and pushed straight on at the first corner, he ended up in last place at turn 2 and then fought his way back to 4th. Charlie also drove a great race and was challenging for 5th when he again was pushed into the tyre wall on the last lap.
A great final again ensued and Luke ran 2nd for most of the race finally being pipped on the last lap with Charlie showing some real pace all day he finally finished 7th after starting in 10th. Both boys showed front running pace all day.
Thank you to all the mechanics, fathers and mothers for helping each other when required…..
Great team work!
Roll on F6 at Ellough…………
