Teddy Wilson leads the way
Teddy Wilson leads the way after the first round of the 2014 LGM series at P.F. International. Nearly 70 drivers competed, with over 8 drivers taking the flag within just over a second, the race was epic and one of the finest cadet duels in resent times. The grandstand was bursting with spectators, a 15 lap race with ever changing leaders, no one could have predicted who would win. Kiern Jewiss got to the lead at one point coming from his grid 15 slot, Tom Wood, Lewis Thompson, Joe Turney and Jonny Edgar also lead, but with Jewiss dropping out, it was Teddy Wilson’s day, just crossing the line ahead of Wood and pole sitting Dexter Patterson who fell away at the start, but being ‘on form’ came back to a strong 3rd place. Top privateer Clayton Ravenscroft came in 24th overall with Toby Stevenson 29th. The next round is in only 2 weeks time, the teams and drivers will be making their way to the Scottish circuit of Larkhall. Could Patterson be the next victor being at his home track !
One of the Championship favourites Kiern Jewiss had his dreams dashed at the opening round with a rare engine seizure. After losing his rear bumper in the 3rd heat, Jewiss had to climb from his grid 15 position, which he did, only to pull clear and lead the race on lap 13 of 15. Whilst in the lead, his engine sized at the end of the straight putting the Nextgen driver on the side line.
