Tamworth Hosts Thriller

Tamworth Hosts Thriller

169featureDaytona Tamworth saw thrilling racing throughout the classes as it hosted the TW Steel DMAX Championship for only the second time over the weekend. 

Round 9 of the UK’s fastest Arrive&Drive Championship came to the Midland’s circuit on Saturday for excellent close racing amongst the Light Classes and Sunday saw amazingly competitive racing across the Inters and Heavy Classes.

Saturday’s first race saw Tom Golding win the Light Enduro, ahead of Tom Sibley who only just managed to hold on to second place ahead of series debutant Charlotte Manton who finished just 0.13 seconds behind Sibley after an hours racing.

Later, Golding may it two out of two with a win in the Light Heats Final ahead of Joseph Conroy and Cameron Noble. His successful day means he has won both Lights championships for 2016 – with Sibley only able to close the gap in the Endurance to one point with a maximum points haul at the final round in November.

On Sunday, the Inter Enduro podium saw Trundley on the top step, and Champion-Elect, ahead of Cousins and Mahony before Zaustowicz won the Heavy Enduro ahead of Whitney and Nakar and Carter who recovered from an early problem to finish fourth.

In the Heats, Hollywood pipped Trundley to the Inter Win – with a stunning overtake on the last corner of the last lap which saw them cross the line side-by-side with just ninety-four thousandths of a second between them. Chris Alcock was just one second further back in third. Hollywood leads Trundley by ten points in the championship. The Heavy Final saw Zaustowicz unbeaten all day, ahead of Whitney and Munro.

Carter’s two black flags in the Heats meant a zero score for Round 9 – and it means Zaustowicz leads the Heavy Heats Championship by 14 points after 9 rounds.

Full race reports and champs tables will be published on the Results Page later today (Monday 17th Oct).

The final round of the championship is at Daytona Milton Keynes on 20th November with testing available on Saturday 19th. Call Mark to book your place on 033033 27870.
