Club 2000, DOUBLE HEADER Round 6 & 7, 5-6th September 2020



We were blessed with some early September sun for our Double Header weekend, and what a weekend it was with 4 lap records (5 if you count the fact that Alfie Campbell smashed the Minimax record on the Saturday then shaved off even more time on the Sunday!


Congratulations to September’s Lap Record Breakers: Honda – Joshua Smith: 45.97; Junior Rotax – Emily Jackson: 40.48; Minimax – Alfie Campbell: 41.66; Senior Rotax – Ben Maxim: 39.58.


HONDA

Another fantastic outing for Joshua Smith (15) as well as smashing the Honda lap record, he took 1st place in every heat and both finals proving he is a force to be reckoned with! Hayden Gray (16) was hot on his heels all weekend, taking 2nd in nearly all heats and both finals; Jenson Mason (58) worked hard to snatch it from him in Heat 1 on the Saturday. The battle for 3rd place on the Saturday was generally fought between Jenson Mason (58) and Luke Bate (9), while on the Sunday, Luke’s feisty adversary was Ollie Clark-Ward (4).


Round 6: Jenson Mason (58) claimed the fastest Honda lap of the day with a 46.33 in Heat 3; Joshua Smith (15) achieved the fastest average speed of 57.10 mph in Qualifying.

Alfie Campbell (40) had a blinder of a weekend, not only achieving two lap records but taking 1st place in Heat 1 and the Final on the Saturday and then revving up to get a full set of 1sts on the Sunday. Most of the fighting for the other top positions was fought between Jenson Weston (34) and Elliot Reed-Hughes (95) but Matthew Copsey (97) was also spent some time in the leading pack.

JUNIOR TKM

Thomas Warner (17) drove like a dynamo all weekend to collect a full set of 1sts, Elliot Norton (75) would have managed a full hand of 2nds but for Charlie Gaillard (74) who claimed that position for himself in Heat 3 on the Sunday. Luke Woodward (46), Jake Cox (26), and Charlie Gaillard (74) took it in turns to come home in 3rd on Saturday while Freya Woodall (16) made 3rd position all her own on the Sunday.

JUNIOR PROKART

There was little movement in positions in the Prokarts this weekend making it seem like the drivers were following a script. The only change being in Heat 1 on Saturday when Charlie Gromett (6) dropped back into 4th place allowing James to pick up 2nd and giving William Bloom (56) a taste of 3rd.

Alfie Lawrence (75) picked up two 1sts, four 2nds and two 3rds. 3rd Josh Twitchen (25) came home with three 2nds, four 3rds and a 4th. 3rd place in Heat 1 on the Saturday was snatched up by Arundel Hughes (24).

SENIOR ROTAX 177

Robert Peachey (00) spent much of the weekend at the front of the field and having taken three 1sts including the Final on the Saturday and 1sts in all the Sunday heats one might have expected a double header win for the double zero driver. Apparently Novice Jay Ford (99) had other ideas and having had to resign himself to 2nds all day on Sunday came through to clinch the top spot in the Final of Round 7. The rest of the positions over the weekend were fairly mixed with James Price (33) (one 1st, two 2nds, one 3rd), Robert Reeve (15) (two 3rds, Jamie Allen (34) (one 2nd), Phil Patience (46) (one 2nd, one 3rd), Justin Clarke (48) (two 3rd s) and Dan Jones (11) (one 3rd) all placing in top three.

Round 6: Simon Hilton (65) achieved the fastest Rotax 177 lap of the day with a 41.52 in Heat 3 and the top average speed 63.23 mph in Practice.


Round 7: Robert Peachey (00) achieved the fastest Rotax 177 lap of the day with a 41.10 in Heat 2; Novice Jay Ford achieved the top average speed of 63.70 mph in the Final.

Tony Wetheridge (41) and Lee Mitchell (37) were consistent with top three positions all day leaving finishing their Club 2000 visit with (Tony) two 1sts, one 2nd and a 3rd (Lee) one 3rd and three 2nds. Ian Wells (173) started the day well with two wins in the heats but couldn’t maintain the pace dropping out of the top three in Heat 3 and then returning for a 3rd in the Final.

YOUNGSTARZ – Round 7 only

We welcomed Youngstarz to Club for the first time this weekend and the turnout was fantastic. Louis Robinson (5) and Scott Lawrence (7) did well to maintain top three positions all day with two 1sts, two 2nds, and one 1st, two 2nds and a 3rd respectively. Luke Power (3) was apparently not satisfied to stay in mid field where he’d spend most of the day and ‘power’ed through (Yes, I did just say that! It had to be done!) to take 1st in the Final.
