Duncan McLeod wins final 2017 S & B Automotive Academy Round at Mansell Raceway
The final round of the S & B Automotive Academy Formula Blue Challenge took place at Mansell Raceway under the most challenging of weather conditions. With little more than a few minutes notice rain either fell in torrents or held off. this continued all through the race day, catching quite a few out on the wrong tyres.
The Final became a dominant display by pole man Duncan McLeod with Ryan Edgecumbe in close attendance. Mitchell McLeod, continuing his recent impressive form took 3rd place. It was, however, Ian Branfield who did enough in 4th overall to claim the Series title. Duncan McLeod also dominated in the Master and Veteran groups with Kevin Ford and Ron Shone filling the rest of the Series podium.
Despite an incident during the heats, Shone kept it together to take the Legend section from Graham Dudley and Kevin O’Neill.
The remaining sub-class title, the Top Weights, was held by Ian Branfield with the father and son duo McLeod snapping at his heals.
With the S & B Automotive Academy Formula Blue Challenge now completed, all attention is turned to the Mansell Raceway at the end of August for the NKRA Grande Finals on 26th and 27th of August.
