TWO COUNTIES CLUB CHAMPS 2023 – TOP PLACINGS DECIDED.
In a very wet final round of the Two Counties Club Championship held at the Clay Pigeon Raceway, the leader in each class and sub-class succeeded in holding on!
Devon Giles won an uncontested Cadet Honda class and thereby retained the class trophy.
There will be a new name on the Junior Blue trophy. In an entry-disrupted Championship, Alfi Lenton emerged as the new Champion, with Rudie Winslow-Morten moving up a step from 3rd to Vice Champion.
In the Formula BLUE main class, David Watts and Anthony Cleal shared the day’s points but Watts, by virtue of ‘count back’ won the Final on the day. Joey Foster, last year’s Champion, finished 3rd on the day. These three when the points are totalled will occupy the Championship Podium, with Watts on the top step, followed by Cleal and Foster.
Foster won the Master sub-group on the day, also by count back, from Cleal. It is Cleal, however, who takes the Club Championship from Foster with Paul Alexander in 3rd spot.
Cleal took a minimum points win in the BLUE Veteran group, and thereby the overall trophy. Alexander finished 2nd on the day, clinching the runner-up spot in the championship. Robin Stoddart-Stones came home in 3rd position but it is Steve Groves who takes 3rd place in the annual Championship.
In the last of the ‘age determined ‘ sub-classes, namely the BLUE Legends, Stoddart-Stones and Stuart Gray (all the way from Scotland) shared the day’s points, but Stoddart-Stones was awarded the win on count-back. He also wins the Club Championship from Davide Goode, with Kevin O’Neill finishing the year in 3rd place.
There will be a new name on the Top Weight sub-class trophy. Alexander finished the year as Champion, as well as winning the final round.
Following a wet race weekend, racers had to pack their race equipment away ‘dirty’. This in turn will enforce a fair bit of extra work, cleaning, preparation and packing the the gear away ready for next year. Things are not all bad, however, the end-of-year presentation event is just over the horizon. Taking place in Weymouth at the Rembrandt Hotel, the event is scheduled for Saturday, November 25th and will, as always, be the high point of the social calendar. This year the Presentation Evening is organised by the 2 Counties Kart Club, who have already put in a lot of time to ensure it is another ‘ evening to remember’!
Along with the 2 Counties members, the National Kart Racing Association, Tabor Karting and Torster Travel will be presenting their Trophies so ‘ Securicor’ will need to be on standby !!
As stated in the regulations, Trophy and Prize winners must be present to receive their awards, so for anyone not yet booked please contact Shelly on (07950 709539) with a degree of urgency.
