ALEX QUINN BECOMES THE 2013 LGM CHAMPION
Alex Quinn yesterday became the 2013 Little Green Man Series champion and the first to be powered by IAME. P.F. International hosted the last round of the series with only 1 point between the two Fusion Motorsport drivers. Oliver York moved back into the lead after putting his kart on pole position and gaining 3 extra points from the heats, with Quinn on grid 3. The race started with a whole train of drivers following right back to 14th place. York then tried to make a break for it and pulled 10 kart length’s clear. Nextgen driver Kiern Jewiss, William Pettitt, AIM Motorsport driver Dexter Patterson and Quinn, worked together and bridged the gap back to York and clear of the pack. Quinn picked off one by one until he was back with York, Jewiss & Pettitt both saying after, they wanted to stay clear of the two so they could race between themselves. On the last lap a titanic battle for lead pursed, Quinn went all the way around York down the main straight, but York managed to get it back under the bridge and went in to compete defence mode. He was so slow on the first air pin with Quinn behind, that Jewiss drove all the way around the outside of them both to take the lead !
York dived into the second air pin retaking the lead, but on the exit it was four karts along side one another, Quinn was on the inside and York closed the gap forcing them both on to the grass, York was O.K. Pettitt got the better of Jewiss, Quinn recovered from the grass. Over the line it was York, Pettitt, Jewiss with Quinn a distance 4th. Post race stewards declared York to have a unfair advantage and awarded a 5 place penalty, this allowing Quinn to win the series by 2 points. The presentation was delayed until the awards dinner. Quinn becomes the 12th LGM champion, with York 2nd, Pettitt 3rd, with Tom Wood 4th.
