It’s Georgie’s Final But Rose Blooms Again!
A Final Report
Round 3 of the Championship and it’s a dry one.
Championship leader Peter Knight is struck by “The Curse Of Lakeside” He’s out of action, fingers crossed he’ll be back in July and can have this day as his dropped round.
Let’s get things going.
James Rose’s performance in the heats results in him sitting pretty taking pole position for the A final, sharing the front row with Jack Adams.
There’s no hanging around as the lights turn green, James hugs the inside line into Complex stopping Jack advances who has his mirrors full of the quick starting Jake Taplin.
Lakeside rookie, Stef Christoforu was the star of the day in the earlier heats with 2nd position in not one, not two, but all three of his heats, Stef’s luck run out in the final after a trip to the pits knocks him to the back of the grid, defiantly one to watch for the July race.
Pig’s really do fly, Jack Adams is proving it after an awesome overtake on race leader James Rose, Jack now has the prized position.
The inseparable pair, Mitchell Guest and Oliver Upton are again sharing the circuit setting identical lap times. Another two drivers tussling for position is Jagjeet Singh and our B final winner Lee Chapman.
The dark horse amongst the crowd is Georgie Anker, after passing the lovely Guest, Upton couple he then made light work of Rishi Gupta who originally started 3rd in the final, Georgie now leads.
Oh dear! The wheels have well and truly fallen of the Jack Adams train, his defensive work has come rapidly undone and now Jake Taplin leads, Jack’s pain isn’t over as a wave of competition follow in Jake’s wheel track and Jack finally recovers in 7th
Final stages and Jake starts to do his infamous “rolling of the sleeves”, an analogy of course, but just as great things are expected…. Georgie never did stand on ceremony; he rudely makes his own space and takes the lead.
Its operation defensive from Georgie, reducing his lap times to a little too slow result in the top 5 separated by less than a second but Georgie stands firm.
An impressive few laps from Lee Chapman is quickly undone, he runs wide and falls back into the clutches of familiar friend Jagjeet.
That’s All Folks!
The A final is Georgie’s tonight a quality few laps of defensive work and capitalising from the mistakes’ from others results in an A Final win. Jake Taplin is close behind with the ever present James Rose completing the podium.
