Anthony Cleal, who won the actual Final finished 2nd on the day with 5 points, which was enough to maintain his overall lead in the Championships. The other noticeable performance came from Taylor’s father, Dave, who finished 6th on the track but 5th overall. His stunning performance rockets him up from 13th in the Championship ranking to 8th place, only 10 points behind his son in 2nd place.

Taylor Waldron comes of age and takes the overall win in Round 6 of the Blue Challenge at the Clay Pigeon. He was, however, fortunate not to be penalised for an impetuous move on David Watts in the final which ended up with the retirement of Watts in the final, with a dislodged exhaust. Waldron scored only 2 points from a pole and a second-place result. Second was Anthony Cleal who actually won the Final but it was from a start position of fifth. Ben Pearson, the current ‘0’ plate Champion, came home 4th in the Final. The points, when totaled to the running scores keep Anthon Cleal in the overall lead from Pearson. Waldron moves up to 4th in the Championship.
It was Cleal who claimed first over-all in the Blue Master sections.
Again, in the Veteran sub-group, Cleal maintains his Series lead by winning the day. Continuing with his stunning form, David Waldron, finished 3rd on the day, thereby promoting him to 3rd in the overall points.
In the Legend sub-class, Robin Stoddart-Stones claimed the day’s win with 3 points with Kevin O’Neill and Ron Shone sharing 2nd place. Stoddart-Stones continues in the overall lead.
Duncan McLeod won the Top Weight section, maintaining his overall lead in this group.
Competitors now have a 4-week break before the next round at Clay Pigeon in July.
