BEAR­MAN TAKES DOU­BLE WIN

Motor Sport News - - Racing Reports - By Gra­ham Smith

Oliver Bear­man took the spoils in two hard fought Honda Cadet fi­nals, fi­nally es­cap­ing from the pack for a four-sec­ond win in Final One af­ter wrestling with Harry Thomp­son, Lu­cas Elling­ham and Wes­ley Ma­son.

In the sec­ond final, Elling­ham and Bear­man broke away with Bear­man soon tak­ing up the lead and hold­ing to the che­quer. Thomp­son fell back from third to 20th with me­chan­i­cal is­sues whilst Caden Mcqueen leapfrogged Ma­son for third.

No one could touch Scott Allen in KZ1 as he moves to the top of the stand­ings for the Bri­tish short cir­cuit gear­box crown. Dan Kelly in­her­ited sec­ond in the first final when Allen’s team-mate Danny Keirle failed to fin­ish the last lap.

Start­ing at the back, Keirle rock­eted through to sec­ond in the grand final, beat­ing Kelly. Cham­pi­onship leader John Pike had a lack­lus­tre week­end and fell to third in the stand­ings be­hind Kelly and Allen.

Al­though Jen­son But­ter­field was in charge through the Satur­day Min­i­max heats, Dex­ter Pat­ter­son out­wit­ted him in both fi­nals. But­ter­field is ahead in the points ta­ble. Tom Can­ning and Jonny Edgar both came off at the first final start with Can­ning black­flagged, but he charged through in the sec­ond final to beat Edgar for fourth. Lor­can Hanafin was third in both.

Myles Apps en­joyed a lights-to-flag vic­tory in the first Ju­nior Max final, but was rel­e­gated to third be­hind Jonathan Hog­gard in the sec­ond event as Joe Turney ran clear for vic­tory.

Guest driver Mark Ross pul­verised the rest in Se­nior Max with dou­ble wins, the first over Jack Mccarthy and the sec­ond over Paul Ste­wart.

In the X30 In­ter­na­tional Qual­i­fiers Gor­don Mutch pipped Max Jeanne in the first Ju­nior final, but was beaten by Oliver Clarke in the sec­ond af­ter Clarke over­came a penalty. Matt Davies and Josh Collings shared se­nior wins.
