Registration is still only £100 and we have been able to keep the prices the same as the 2017 series, with only a small adjustment on the tyre price for the X30 classes.

The number system will be as per 2017 using three digits and the champions are able to use their LGM number, 101, 201, 301, should they wish. The numbers are a first come first serve basis.

NEW CHAMPIONS ARE CROWNED
With changing conditions, the last round of the 2017 LGM series did not disapoint at PF International. The new X30 Senior champion is Mark Litchfield, in the X30 Junior class is Harry Thompson, Iame Cadet Taylor Barnard and in the Mini X tour Georgi Dimitrov. However non of the champion drivers were able to win at the last round. In X30 senior Oliver Hodgson took the flag only to find he had a nose penualty leaving Archie Tillett to take his maiden win in the LGM, with Owen Byatt a great second, the newly crowned World kart champion Danny Keirle was lying in second place only to have a rare spark plug failure, causing him to retire. The Junior race was a titanic battle with eventual winner Morgan Porter taking his second win of the year having dropped to 10th earlier in the race, Louie Westover followed him home. The Iame Cadet was a two horse afair with Taylor Barnard dominating at the front with Coskun Irfan for company. Irfan made a move and lead part of the race, but Barnard was leading up to the line defending his lead only to find Irfan went around the outside at the finish ahead by a mere 0.03. Probably the best race of the day was the Mini X tour. Georgi Dimitrov, Joseph Taylor and Kai Askey changed places so many times we all lost count. The eventual winner being Askey who drove it home to take the win. A full race report will feature in next months Rivista magazine,
