In the race of his life, to date, Mike Bell had a stunning weekend, having spent the Saturday at Forest Edge running-in a rebuilt engine and sorting out an electrical problem on his kart it all came together on the Sunday.
He qualified on Pole, won the Final and achieved the fastest lap. It doesn’t get any better ! Russell O’Neill was the only driver capable of staying with him although David Waldron showed flashes throughout the day and finished 3rd in the Final. David Goode, having won his first heat in years, pressed hard in the Final to finish in 4th place ahead of Serita Shone. In the overall standings, Bell now takes the Championship lead from Anthony Cleal, who didn’t race at this event. Russell O’Neill takes up 3rd place from David Waldron. It was O’Neill who took 1st spot in the Master section from Waldron with Goode coming in 3rd. O’Neill now leads from Cleal and Waldron.

David Waldron, in turn, won the Veteran sub-group, with David Goode finishing in 2nd place ahead of Rob Mortimore. The overall standings show Waldron promoted to equal 1st, sharing top spot with Cleal. Goode moves up to 3rd.
In the Legend sub-class, it was Goode who took the win from Ron Shone with Kevin O’Neill in 3rd place. This win promotes Goode to Championship lead from Robin Stoddart-Stones, who wasn’t present and as a consequence slips to 2nd with Ron Shone in 3rd.

Rob Mortimore won in the Top Weight section from Shone and consequently, he moves up a spot to equal 1st in the Championship.

Competitors now have a rest in the 2 Counties Championship until 8th September, when they will contest Round 3 on the 8th September at the Clay Pigeon Circuit.
