Race 2 Sunday 27th June – 15 minutes plus 1 lap- Rolling Start

Geraint Rees joined us for the Sunday races. John O’Shea now had his Eurocar Mondeo running, but only on 5 of its 6 cylinders. Andy Williams was looking for a better run having found a broken lead as the likely source of his troubles ‘Hopefully I can give it a good run’ Sadly Nick Jones was missing with broken throttle cable.

What a race! Alvin wins after a great battle

Alvin, Domonic & Rhys carve through the midfield in the seasons closest battle for the lead

If Saturdays race was an excellent start to the weekend, then Sundays 1st race was mind-bogglingly good. Seldom has 15 minutes appeared to pass so quickly. See mp4 of the start

This time when the lights changed Dominic Evans left no doors open, and was the 1st car out of Hatchets and he held the lead for the first 2 laps, with Alvin hot on his heels. Alvin made a move and lead laps 3 & 4 until Dominic got past to lead laps 5.6 & 7. Alvin wasn’t behind long and re-took the lead on lap 8 as Dom slid wide at Hatchets, and was able to hold it to the end, taking the chequered flag after 16 laps with Dominic less than second behind, having well & truly kept Alvin honest. Behind the best battle we have had for the lead for a long time; Rhys was 3rd, with Dave Krayem 4th after he had de-moted Russell to 5th . Russell then had another race-long battle with Neil Watts for the Class B honours, with Neil’s kids going ballistic as they urged their Dad on. Mike Woods was in good form, initially in an excellent 7th place, but he was past early on by a fast starting Geraint Rees, who had carved his way up from the back, Geraint went on to separate Russell & Neil, before making a late race exit. This left Russell to fend off Neil to finish 5th for his 2nd Class B win of the weekend, with Neil 6th. Mike was later caught and past by Andy Williams who was also carving his way up from the back, getting used to the Nissan to finish 7th, with Mike 8th & Ben Scrivens 9th. In 10th place and improving all the time was Phil Bendall, Roger Dowden was 11th. Kareem was 12th winning Class A, from Chris Morris but it was far from easy as Chris had the early advantage. Kareem past Chris as the leaders started lapping them. Chris wasn’t giving up and took the place back late in the race. However Kareem gathered himself up and re-passed Chris on the last lap to take the Class A win; and he wasn’t too far behind Roger Dowden either!. Chris Evans was 14th and Ken Rattenbury was the final runner. Geraint Rees didn’t make it to the flag and John O’Shea didn’t make it around the first lap.

At the end Alvin confirmed ‘That was a great race’ Dom confirmed ‘Alvin is very quick around the corners, that was a lot of fun’ It certainly was fun watching it.
