Club 2000, Round 9, 1st November 2020

Round 9 November




An overcast damp day which pretty much epitomised the mood of the last Club meeting before Lockdown 2.0. The damp track ruled out any chance of exciting lap times, nevertheless there was some excellent driving (and a little maverick driving too!).


HONDA

Joshua Smith (15) had a great run, leading most of the day and coming away with a full set of 1sts. Luke Bate (9) challenged as best he could, briefly taking the lead ahead of Joshua Smith (15) in Heat 3, finishing with a full set of 2nds. William Briant (72) and Hayden Gray (16) had their own mini battle going on with each coming away with two 3rds and two 4ths.


Luke Bate (9) claimed the fastest Honda lap of the day with 47.08 in Heat 3. The fastest average speed of 56.59 mph was achieved in Qualifying by Joshua Smith (15).

MINIMAX

Having had two great rounds, Alfie Campbell’s (40) luck ran out a little and only managed two positions in the top three with a 3rd and a 1st in the Final. That said, some excellent driving saw Alfie Campbell’s (40) start from 5th to take 1st in the final. Alfie Campbell’s (40) somewhat erratic day allowed Jenson Weston (34) to make up some ground lost in the previous rounds, coming away with three top three positions, two 2nd s, a 3rd. Elliot Reed-Hughes (95) only managed one top three placing, but it was the one that counted!


Alfie Campbell (40) claimed the fastest Minimax lap of the day with a 42.41 in Heat 2. Sam Cooper (44) achieved the fastest average speed of 62.06 mph in Qualifying.

JUNIOR TKM

Front Fairing and Driving Standards penalties changed the outcome for a few competitors in JTKM. Elliot Norton’s (75) and Luke Woodward (46) battled it out all day: Elliot Norton (75) collecting two 1sts and two 2nds; Luke Woodward (46), two 1sts, a 2nd and a 4th. Thomas Warner (17) picked up the remaining 2nd position in Heat 1 and a 3rd in Heat 2 but the rest of his day didn’t exactly go to plan. Oliver Rands (27) also had a mixed day, managing to take 3rd in the Final and in Heat 1.



Luke Woodward (46) claimed the fastest Junior TKM lap of the day with a 42.27 in the Final and the fastest average speed of 62.89 also in Heat 3.

Keen to hold onto his lead in the Championship table, Jeremy Lock (72) was a man on a mission, taking 1st in all heats and the Final.
