This round was dedicated to the memory of Andrew Simpson (Chewie), Andrew was sadly taken in a car accident last week at just 29, far too young, our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the family if you still wish to make a donation please get in touch via our Facebook page.

Zak Finlay of Xray now has 1 hand on the title 13.5 blinky title after wrapping up Round 4 with FTQ & both Leg final wins, it may not of been as straightforward but for the intense battle taking place for 2nd place between Billy Fletcher (Awesomatix) & Paul Pinkney (Schumacher), however with a challenging track rewarding the least mistakes Zak was able to increase the gap, Ashley Wiffen driving the Awesomatix able to capitalise on the battle and take 3rd overall.  Zak only needs FTQ or a leg win over the final 2 rounds to confirm the title.

3rd, Ashley Wiffen. 1st, Zak Finlay. 2nd, Paul Pinkney.

GT12 class leader Owen Smith endured a tough day with fierce competition from Mark Parnell lining up on pole with his last run for FTQ, both drivers suffered damage in Leg 1 leaving young Daniel Robins up from 4th to take victory from Chris Wilkinson.  Leg 2 went to Mark, Owen 2nd Chris 3rd with Daniel retiring from the running.

3rd, Nick Upton. 1st, Chris Wilkinson. 2nd, Michael Hull.
Tamiya Trucks, Malc hall was close enough to take advantage when pole man Tom Hampson was collected by a marshal meaning a fightback to 2nd with Alan Chipolina banking 3rd.  Leg 2 went Malc Hall’s way as well, Hampo fighting against a resilient Adam Southgate unable to find a way through with Adam finishing 2nd in Leg, Tom taking the podium ahead of Adam by a faster Leg 1 time.
3rd, Alan Chipolina. 1st, Malc Hall. 2nd, Tom Hampo
