What a Round 8!
After a short delay before the first practice due to a technical hitch (which may or may not have been my fault…), the Cadets really kept us on edge by giving us 2 red flags amongst some great racing which saw us still in the first heat of the day at almost 11 o’clock! With day day brightening as racing continued, more and more action packed races kept us on the edge of our seats. Some drivers having better days than others as we saw 5 more red flags, none of which could overshadow amazing battles which lasted for laps, right up to the chequered flag in some of the classes.
Thankfully, although we had 7 Red Flags in total today, all drivers were OK (bar a little sore in a couple of places) and all (bar Emilia Vincent – due to mechanical issues) were able to get back in the game in the following race.
Whilst they may have kept us chewing our finger nails down to the knuckle through most of the day, the Cadets had some amazing action packed fights going on all through the field. With most eyes on the top 3 in the fight for the top step, the final really was anyone’s win to take. Bravo to Archie Brown, Benjamin Burgess and Guy Cunnington for stunning 3,2,1 that saw overtake after overtake, lap after lap.
