Lo­cal driver Jen­son But­ter­field didn’t put a foot wrong all week­end and was un­beat­able in both the dry and wet con­di­tions taking a clean sweep of Mini Max vic­to­ries.

Af­ter taking vic­tory in Ju­nior Max Fi­nal One, Rory Hud­son was finding it hard to take a podium in Fi­nal Two as he found him­self bat­tling with Johnathan Hog­gard, Myles Apps and Joe Tur­ney for sec­ond. Up front, Tyler Ch­ester­ton drove a very cal­cu­lated race to win.

Sun­day was all about Josh Collings in Ro­tax Max. His fastest lap in the morn­ing’s heat was a sign of things to come in the af­ter­noon’s fi­nals as, de­spite chal­lenges from Char­lie Turner, James John­son and Jack Mccarthy, he was able to take both vic­to­ries.

Cham­pi­onship leader Bradley White had a mixed day in Ju­nior TKM. He won Fi­nal One de­spite huge chal­lenges from Abbi Pulling, but found him­self go­ing back­wards in the tele­vised race with Pulling taking vic­tory.

In the Honda Cadet Fi­nals the red flag was flown three times in what was two chaotic but en­ter­tain­ing fi­nals. Harry Thomp­son just missed out on vic­tory in Fi­nal One to Oliver Bear­man and his deter­mi­na­tion in Fi­nal Two cer­tainly grew as he fought from sixth to first.

The sec­ond TKM Ex­treme fi­nal had the po­ten­tial to be a very close race with less than two sec­onds sep­a­rat­ing the top 10, but it was un­for­tu­nately cut short due to an in­ci­dent off cir­cuit. In the lead when the race stopped was Kyle Sproat whose good cham­pi­onship run con­tin­ues. Christo­pher Whit­ton was vic­to­ri­ous in the open­ing fi­nal race.

IAME Cadet pro­duced the best rac­ing of the day with, at times, 10 karts bat­tling for the lead. Harry Thomp­son passed two driv­ers in as many cor­ners to win Fi­nal One and in Fi­nal Two it was Jonny Wilkin­son who was po­si­tioned per­fectly to in­herit the vic­tory as oth­ers fell off around him.
