BEARMAN TAKES DOUBLE WIN
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.
Bearman won both of the hotly-contested Honda Cadet finals at Larkhall
