A great day in the sunshine at Buxton Raceway, huge well done to #595 Jamie Young on winning Heat 1 from the red grade and a superb hard fought battle with the Pooley brothers in the final with all 3 drivers crossing the line nose to tail. Also it was great to finally see #59 Steve Young shake off his 2018 gremlins. Despite them still being present in Heat 1 with clutch issues he managed to cure them and follow it up by wining Heat 2 & the Northern Championship Final, making it a “Young” Father & Son victory lock out. The Pooley brothers #31 Jonathan & #32 Daniel were on their usual good form finishing inside the top 5 every race with Daniel overtaking #595 Jamie Young for 2nd place in the Final with only a handful of laps remaining. #27 Pete Gillett showed great form nearly taking the win in Heat 1 only being passed on the last half of the last lap finishing a close 2nd & following it up with another strong 2nd place finish in Heat 2. And #888 Andy Phillips had another encouraging meeting finishing all 3 races in the Points. Andy really looked to be gelling with the car nicely and is getting faster & smoother each time out.
::: See you all in 7 days time at Aldershot Raceway.
