The Super and Mighty Minis drivers acquitted themselves well and put on a fantastic display of racing on both days that they should be immensely proud of. Different winners in each class in both of their races. Louise Inch took a fine win in the first of the Super Mighty Minis championship races with Adrian Tuckley second and Ian Slark third.
The second race started with a reverse position for the top seven finishers. This put Dave Rees and Steve Rideout on the front row. It was 20 minutes of sheer joy to witness the contest unfold, where there was a new leader after every corner. Steve Dawson won it by the slimiest of margins from Louise Inch with Ian Slark enjoying his second podium of the weekend.

After what seemed like everyone was at the front the race settled down as the clear leaders opend up a small comfort zone to those battling for fifth. A fine display of drafting and using the expanse of the circuit to under cut on the switch back was thrilling to watch. Sam Tomlinson in his Skip UK sponsored car won a a solid battle at the line from championship leader Greg Jenkins whilst Josh Young enjoyed his first podium of the season in third.
