“The fight for the podium soon in­cluded the top seven cars...”

Mini Magazine - - Motorsport -

The track was even wet­ter when the Mighty’s went out to race. Paul Inch made a great get­away and led the field into Quarry for the first time, but the big­gest mover on the first lap was Adrian Tuck­ley, who’d made it up to third place from sixth.

With Inch hold­ing the lead, Paul Rhodes made a move at Quarry to pass Mar­tyn Hath­away, be­fore ris­ing to third at Old Pad­dock. A mis­take by Inch at Camp then al­lowed Sam Hath­away into the lead, quickly fol­lowed by dad Mar­tyn Hath­away as Inch was de­moted to third. The pair were side- by- fol­low­ing lap to rise to sec­ond. Hath­away tried to over­take Inch at Folly, but car­ried too much mo­men­tum and spun into the bar­rier when he tried to brake for Quarry.

As the track dried, Inch be­gan to strug­gle with an en­gine is­sue, with Slark and Mar­tyn Hath­away over­tak­ing him. How­ever, Hath­away then spun and later hit the bar­rier. Tuck­ley also passed the slow­ing Inch, but another side­ways mo­ment for Tuck­ley at Camp al­lowed Har­ring­ton to pass him. It fin­ished with Rhodes tak­ing the win, Slark in sec­ond and Har­ring­ton a dis­tant third.
