Club 2000, Double Header Rounds 1 & 2, 3rd-4th April 2021

Round 1-2 April



The first double header of the year was overcast but dry. Numbers on the Saturday were a little down on the Friday due to Covid restrictions preventing overnight stays. The dry track together with the excitement of being let loose after months of enforced hibernation led to some fast times and two lap records.


HONDA

Joshua “Bomber” Smith (15) had a great weekend with three 1sts and a 2nd in R1 and a clean sweep in R2. Hayden Gray (16) took 1st in the Final of R1 having been consigned to 2nd in all the heats. In R2, the Junglings took turns at 2nd and 3rd place with Ralf Jungling (16) taking three 2nds and a 3rd and Timo Jungling (8) one 2nd and two 3rds. Levi Machardie (54) who spent all the heats in 4th position managed 3rd in the Final.

MINIMAX

Many of last year’s Minimax drivers have graduated onto Junior Rotax this year which means Alex Beale (43) had the class to himself. While he probably enjoyed coming 1st in every race, we’re sure he’d like some competition!

his fastest lap of the day (45.98) in the Final.
