Heats and semifinals: how the action unfolded
A LAST-LAP MISTAKE AT BROOKLANDS BY JAMES Raven gifted Matt Round-garrido victory in heat one on a wet track, with polesitter Jake Byrne finishing third after a spin on the opening lap.
Ross Martin secured a lights-to-flag victory in heat two as Kevin O’hara took second, with Luke Cooper, who started eighth after suffering damage in qualifying when he collided with Sebastian Melrose coming out of the assembly area, finishing third.
The front three of Joey Foster, Jordan Dempsey and British F3 driver Jamie Chadwick stayed unchanged from start to finish in heat three.
Keith Donegan lost on-the-road victory and was demoted to fifth after last-lap contact at Luffield with last year’s event winner, Niall Murray, in heat four. Team USA scholar driver Jonathan Kotyk inherited the win, with Murray second.
Michael Moyers comfortably won heat five from Kevin Mills Racing team-mate Roger Orgee, but National champion Luke Williams finished eighth with engine problems and pulled out of the event.
Josh Fisher took victory in heat six, the fastest of the day on a dry circuit after earlier rain, from Stuart Gough and Oliver White.
Westie Mitchell won the Progression race after starting 14th, while Kotyk’s fellow scholar, Aaron Jeansonne, was eliminated after finishing seventh.
David Mccullough took a lights-to-flag win in the Last Chance race.
Fisher held off White for the first semi-final win, which was red-flagged when Murray spun at Brooklands and was collected by Melrose.
A mistake by Moyers at Brooklands allowed Foster to win the second semi and start the final from pole.
