Two Counties Club Championships decided for 2017

Joshua Whittington-Couch, Duncan McLeod and Ron Shone win the various classes and sub-groups that have been competed for within the Two Counties Club Championships.
In the Cadet Honda class, Charlie  Vaughan and Joshua Whittington-Couch went into the last round at Clay Pigeon on November 12th dead level on points.  Neither had a drop option available so the Championship would be decided on that day.  Although Vaughan qualified in Pole position, with Whittington-Couch alongside it was Whittington-Couch who scored the win with Vaughan coming in 3rd, thereby giving the overall result to Whittington-Couch.
In the Formula Blue class, Duncan McLeod went into the last round with a 10 point lead over jake Calvert ( in his first year as a Senior driver).  However, things didn’t go completely to plan.  Following a break failure in heat 3, McLeod found himself on grid 5 for the start of the Final, whilst Calvert had secured Pole position.  By the end of lap 1,  Calvert had been deposed by Anth Cleal and Martin Wheeler.  The next move happened on lap 5 when Mitch McLeod, Calvert, and Duncan McLeod forced past Wheeler. Then on lap 7,  Duncan McLeod went past Calvert.  Next lap and Calvert pulled into the pits only to re-appear a lap later.  In the meantime, Cleal robustly held on to the lead until lap 12 when pressure from the McLeod son and father duo paid off and they were through.  Thus, Duncan , in 2nd place over the line, claimed a hard-fought Championship Win.  Mitch,  by virtue of the day’s win, snatched 2nd place in the Championship from Calvert who finished in 3rd Place overall.
Duncan, however, wasn’t finished there.  He finalised the season’s racing by taking the, Master, Veteran and Top Weight groups as well. In the Master and Veteran sections, David Goode and Ron shone came in 2nd and 3rd respectively.  It was Shone who, by virtue of a better qualifying place, claimed the Legend section despite David Goode finishing ahead of him in the Final. 
In the Top Weight sub-class it was Mitch McLeod and Jake Calvert who ended the year in 2nd and 3rd respectively.   For details and full results please CLICK HERE 
The racing season ends with the presentation of the annual trophies at the Portland Heights Hotel on November 25th, to which all winners are expected to be present in order to receive their trophies and prizes.  Contact Julie,  on tel. 01305 774074 by  17th November if you have not already booked your ticket for the Presentation dinner.

CLEAL WINS THE ‘PERCY’

After an average year  ( by his standards),  Anthony Cleal wins the final major trophy of 2017.  The Matthew Percy Memorial Trophy,  for Formula Blue,  is without doubt,  the Two Counties Club’s most prestigious event and probably the ‘biggest’ Formula Blue event,  second only to the NKRA Grande Finals. This trophy race was held at the Clay Pigeon Circuit and the race attracted drivers from afar afield as Scotland and Switzerland. 
The Trophy, which has been competed for since 1991, has a list of illustrious ‘Winners’ names attached.  Anth Cleal has now added his name to the list ! With grid positions of 2nd and Finish place 3rd,  he scored 5 points, winning him the Cup.  As the grid assembled for the Final, Jake Calvert sat on Pole position and was favorite for the overall result. Along side sat Anth Clean, with Martin Wheeler and Taylor Waldron on Row 2.  During the race Calvert visited the pits, putting him out of contention.  That immediately changed the complexion of the race to the degree that any one of four drivers could now win the overall title.  In the end, it was Cleal who claimed the Percy Trophy. Behind,  three drivers shared 7 points and were separated in the results by virtue of track position.  As such Mitch McLeod came runner-up, with Duncan McLeod  3rd and Martin Wheeler 4th.  the Swiss entrant Keith Wilson finished the day with 11 points with a creditable 5th position overall.
