Bray Kenneally took a stun­ning maiden Su­per One vic­tory on a swel­ter­ing week­end in South Wales by valiantly hold­ing off a six-strong Fu­sion Mo­tor­sport hoard in a thrilling sec­ond MSA Cadet fi­nal.

The AIM Mo­tor­sport driver had al­ready opened his ac­count in the first fi­nal, aided by a late-race clash be­tween points leader Harry Thomp­son and Arvid Lind­blad who, at just eight years of age, made his­tory by be­com­ing the youngest driver to win a Su­per One heat.

Fi­nal two was the high­light of the week­end as Kenneally had to con­tend with half a dozen Fu­sion karts, plus sev­eral oth­ers, as a lead pack of 10 broke away. Ev­ery time ei­ther Thomp­son or Joseph Tay­lor forged ahead, Kenneally fought straight back, fear­ful he would be freight-trained to the rear of the group.

With a lap and a half to go, just as Kenneally was look­ing at his most vul­ner­a­ble, Thomp­son and Tay­lor be­gan to bat­tle over sec­ond, de­lay­ing each other and al­low­ing Kenneally to make his es­cape.

Af­ter a restart for Ian Sis­son’s nasty look­ing crash, Abbi Pulling fi­nally scored her first Su­per One vic­tory in Ju­nior TKM, beat­ing fi­nal one vic­tor Bradley White. In TKM Ex­treme, Harry Moore scored a brace of wins af­ter fi­nal one run­ner-up, Matt Eng­land, crashed out on the rolling lap of fi­nal two.

An­gus Fender dom­i­nated Satur­day’s Ju­nior X30 heats but points leader Gor­don Mutch bat­tled back to win the first fi­nal. Mutch also crossed the line first in fi­nal two but was ex­cluded and so the win went to Oliver Clarke, who passed Fender at the fi­nal cor­ner.

It was a per­fect week­end for Josh Collings at his home track in Se­nior X30 as he won ev­ery race. Matt Davies chased him home in both fi­nals, al­beit at a safe dis­tance.
