SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW THE RACE RESULTS
Rhys Read in the Junior Blue class dominated proceedings, especially the Final, where despite having to start in 2nd place at the back of a mixed ( with a mini-max) grid, pressed forwards to win the Junior Blue Percy Trophy Race. A DNF in heat 2 ( pedal issue) nearly cost him the overall Junior Blue ‘Percy’ trophy.
Mitch Carpenter, in his last race as a Junior before moving up into the Senior Blue grid, gave Read a run for his money, finishing the day on equal points, only losing out by the eventual track position.
A full grid of Formula Blue drivers were present at the Clay Pigeon Circuit for the annual Matthew Percy Memorial Race on 13th November 2022. The race involved the 2 Counites Club members who had competed in a minimum of 1 previous Club round. Scoring included grid start plus finish positions, once any non-eligible competitors had been deleted from the result.
The Pole position for the Final was held by returnee to Formula Blue, Kevin Ford, with Anthony Cleal alongside on position 2. On the second row sat Stuart Gray and Joey Foster.
In the race, a determined Gray forged to the front. It was a position he held to the end, with Foster a couple of seconds behind in 2nd place. Cleal, driving one-handed whilst operating a broken throttle cable, finished in 3rd place. In 4th was Kevin Ford still nursing a previous shoulder injury. Mike Bell finished in 5th position.
With the points now added together, Stuart Gray ( 3 + 0 = 3 points) becomes the Winner and Kevin Ford (0 + 4 = 4 points) Runner-up. Anthony Cleal finishes 3rd on 5 points ( 2 + 3 = 5 points) and Joey Foster on 4th with 6 points ( 4 + 2 = 6 points)
