GYG Round 2 April 2005 Race Report


The most popular winner of the day came from the last final of the day, in the Minimax class. The earlier heat results had again been split three ways, Josh Butcher taking the opener, Joshua Slade the second, with Amy Scarisbrick victorious in heat three. The final saw Scarisbrick quickly edge ahead from Slade with novice driver Oliver Clayton moving into third place. It was a desperately close affair, but Scarisbrick showed her defensive skills for lap after lap to keep Slade at bay. It looked like disaster was about to strike for Scarisbrick two laps from the finish as she came into contact with a back marker, allowing Slade to edge back into the lead, however Scarisbrick was not going to be denied her maiden victory as she again reclaimed the advantage on the final lap, holding on and punching the air in delight as she took the victory by the slender margin of 0.237 secs from Slade. Josh Butcher came through late in the race to grab third spot.
