KENNEALLY STARS WITH MAIDEN WIN
Organiser: Super One When: June 4/5 Where: Llandow, Glamorgan Championships: Junior TKM; TKM Extreme; IAME Cadet; Junior and Senior X30
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.
