Once the dust had settled,  Ian Branfield emerged top of the Formula Blue ranking order after the NKRA Grande Finals at Mansell Raceway on the 26th and 27th August. Everything came down to the actual final of the day.  If Duncan McLeod, who had already gained pole position, won,  then the No 1 was his.  From the lights, he shot into the lead,  which he gradually increased until lap 7, when he inexplicably pulled off and went back to the pits.  Ian Branfield took full advantage and raced on to the win followed by Anth Cleal, who eventually finished 4th in the ranking order.  It was Kevin Ford, however, who claimed 2nd overall,  once the  S & B Automotive Academy scores were added to the total, with Mitch McLeod taking 3rd place.  New boys, on the block, were Ryan Edgecumbe who is now ranked 9th,  Taylor Waldron ranked 11th,   Jake Calvert 13th,  Robert Dudley 15th and father, Graham,  in 16th.  Ben Pearson,  after a late start in the season, claimed the 17th spot with Hanna McLeod, despite a hiccup in the Final, taking 18th.

The Formula Blue entourage now moves on to Clay Pigeon for the Gold Rush on 11th September  ( which is also the Cancer Research Charity fund raising day) where the new numbers will be on display.
