Zak Finlay put on a dominant display in qualifying to line up Pole, the Xray driver able to push from the start of both final Legs to take a comfortable win securing the title, the battle for 2nd was a very close affair between the Awesomatix of Ashley Wiffen & Paul Pinkneys Schumacher trading a 2nd & 3rd place in each leg to give Ashley 2nd overall from Paul.  The battle for the final podium places will go onto the final round.

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

GT12 saw regular National A finalist in Touring car Mod Harley Eldridge racing back to her roots, the young star racing for Mardave.  Harley would take FTQ ahead of the other young Championship leader, Owen Smith of Zen Racing .  Harley breezed to the win in Leg 1 with Owen retiring.  Leg 2 saw Harley again with the win and for the early part a great battle between the 2 front running youngesters with Harley delivering a faultless drive to win, Owen to take 2nd and secure the GT12 title.   overall 2nd Tom Hampson’s Zen & 3rd going to Chris Wilkinson of Mardave.

3rd, Tom Hampson. 1st, Harley Eldridge. 2nd, Chris Wilkinson
Tamiya Trucks was once again a fun filled adventure with the a few more new faces taking up the baton most notably Billy Fletcher driving a borrowed truck he somehow managed to put 3rd in the A final despite a severe power deficit, Malc Hall leading the way from Pole was able to bring home both legs ahead of the ever fast and fun Tom Hampson & RugRacers team member Alan Chipolina.  The win awarding Malc Hall the championship.

3rd, Alan Chipolina. 1st, Malc Hall. 2nd, Tom Hampson
As is now traditional for the truck class the young & not so young awards for Mutha Trucka & Little Trucka went to Mark Burgess & Jack Taylor.
