After a fantastic Grande Final weekend at Forest Edge circuit on September 1st, a new list of winners is revealed.
With four heats to decide the grid positions, many of the ‘front’ runners, who had succumbed to a gremlin or incident in one of their heats, found that the consistent drivers were positioned well forward on the grid for the Final. Mitchell McLeod sat on Pole position with David Watts alongside. On row 2 were Anthony Cleal and Toby Cook, with Taylor Waldron and Stuart Gray behind. The 4th row was occupied by Serita Shone and David Waldron.

In the Final , (race report to follow soon ) the five fastest drivers all achieved quicker than 44.2 second lap times, namely D. Watts, A. Cleal,
T. Waldron, M. Bell, and S. Gray. 4 Blue top engines ( Lynx) and 1 Green Top ( Maxi) were used.

In the race, David Watts had taken a lead by lap 2. A position which he would not lose. A lap later Cleal was up into 2nd place but was unable to close on the small gap that Watts had established. Taylor Waldron reached 3rd spot on lap seven. These three remained unchallenged to the flag.

Once the points were totalled. David Watts emerged as the NKRA Champion with Anthony Cleal, last year’s winner, in the runner-up spot. 3rd and 4th were Taylor Waldron and Toby Cook.

All drivers finished the Final with only 23 seconds separating first at the chequered flag. With driver weights ranging from 60kg to 100kg, it was a testament to how close the racing was and how the rules and regulations work to ensure fair and equal competition without equipment stress and failures.
