Russell O’Neill suffered a thrown chain in the Final of the last scoring round of the Tabor Customer Championships at Clay Pigeon. Despite this, his lead was such that he still won overall and claimed the £500 first prize. Serita Shone took the day’s win with 16 points and finished the year in 2nd place, with a prize of £400. Behind her came Robin Stoddart-Stones and David Goode, taking £300 & £200 pounds respectively. Rob Mortimore jumped from 7th to 5th and wins the last prize of £100.
The presentation of awards and trophies takes place at the 2CKC evening on November 23rd. Thereafter, there is a winter break until March of 2020 allowing all racers to ‘chill’ and recharge their ‘batteries’ ready for the new race season.

Tabor Karting would like to congratulate Russell O’Neill, Mike Bell, Robin Stoddart-Stones David Waldron and Serita shone for their success in taking the first 5 places in the 2 Counties Club Championships.
They also wish to inform racers, who may want their engines serviced, that the engine department will be closed from December 7th until January 26th. Racers who have already provided their engines for servicing will be able to collect them from the 2 Counties Presentation / NKRA evening on Sat 23rd November. Other racers may bring their engines to the function, for collection by Tabor Karting to avoid carriage fees.
Despite atrocious weather conditions on the Saturday and a damp start to Sunday morning, for the most part, the day remained sunny but cold. The racing was fantastic throughout the day with stunningly exciting Finals.
In Formula Blue, the front runner, Russell O’Neill, had a fraught day enduring unresolved electrical problems. Changing his engine for the Final, he started absolute last then charged through the grid setting fastest times in sectors 1 and 3. He reached 4th before throwing a chain. It mattered little as his Championship drop option was good enough to give him the 2019 Club Championship title.
David Watts won the day, with a dominant Pole to Flag win, backing up his earlier, in the year, Grande Final victory. The Second overall place was shared by Taylor Waldron and Mike Bell, although the trophy was won by Waldron by virtue of finishing ahead in the Final. In the 2019 championship, it is Bell who claims the runner-up spot. Behind him, arch-rivals, Robin Stoddart-Stones and Dave Waldron tied for 3rd spot. They both had the same drop option so the decision-making process then selects the 1st round, which was back in March. Waldron hadn’t entered, so 3rd place in the Championship goes to Stoddart-Stones! By coincidence, the exact same situation happened in the Master Championship. Russell O’Neill a clear winner and Stoddart-Stones taking 2nd place from Dave Waldron as Waldron hadn’t entered the 1st round.
Dave Waldron managed to reverse the tables in the Veteran sub-class beating Stoddart-Stones to the title with David Goode claiming 3rd spot overall.
Stoddart-Stones did, however, win the Legend group from Goode and Ron Shone.
In the Top-Weight section , Rob Mortimore managed to hold off the challenge from Shone with novice Mike Watts finishing the year in style to take the 3rd overall Championship place.
In the Cadet HONDA Class, Scott Marsh went into the last race day with a slender 1 point lead over Charles Green and Hugh Moulton. He, despite sharing the day with Moulton, maintained that 1 point gap and wins the Championship with Moulton 2nd and Green 3rd.
With the 2019 Championship now over, all that is left this year is the presentation Dinner and Dance to be held in 2 weeks ( to which winners must be in attendance). See you all then!
