Summary

The first qualifying session of the season was hotly contested with the top three separated by less than 2 tenths of a second with Flob taking the first pole of the season. The two biggest shocks of the session was the times of the POWA boys, Ajokay and Bookoi who both set dirty laps putting them down in 17th and 18th place.

The race got underway cleanly with all drivers making it round the tricky first corner with no drivers having the use the extended run off area on the outside of turn 1. In Lobby 1 Blairy and Smifaye were at battle over the lead. Blairy kept the Black Raptors driver behind for 4 laps before Smifaye capitalised on a mistake by Blairy taking the lead. Meanwhile in lobby 2 the midfield was very tightly bunched together with 5 drivers running within a couple of seconds of each other. Smifaye took the overall race win from Blairy with Flob rounding off the podium and Smifaye taking the fastest lap.

Race Summary

The second round of the season saw a more chaotic start to the race than the first. TheWilkesy88 was seen in a spin mid corner after taking the first corner of the race. Most drivers managed to pick their way through the carnage but some were less fortunate. Lobby 2 was once again extremely close with quite a few drivers running nose to tail. Meanwhile in lobby 1 STR TommyB had escaped the melee at the first corner and was out in the lead by quite a margin but Smifaye wanted to do something about this and put the pressure of the Indypendables driver. Smifaye narrowed the gap lap by lap and managed to make the move for the win. TommyB ended the race second with newboy Wheelwash taking an impressive podium in his first season. Smifaye took the fastest lap of the race
