JEWISS BECOMES THE SIXTH WINNER
Six different drivers have now won a round of the 2014 LGM with Kiern Jewiss becoming the seventh round victor. In the heats it was Jonny Edgar that did a blistering job of securing pole position, Tom Wood who seems to be back on form, placed his kart on grid 2. Lewis Thomson had 3 out 3 fastest laps in the heats lining up grid 5, with other championship contenders Teddy Wilson and Zac Robertson, 11th & 12th respectively. The early lead was taken by Edgar and Wood but these were not to get away from the pack of 15 leading drivers. The battle was the usual LGM quality, with many drivers trying to pull away and also jockey for position. Working his way up Thompson took the lead and made a dash for it pulling six kart lengths into the bottom corner. His lead was short lived as the very next lap the crew behind soon pulled him back in where he got shuffled back to 8th in one corner !. With championship leader Wilson making little progress, Robertson, was and briefly took the lead. With bad driver information from the circuit, there was no display of how long was left, Jewiss then made his move and pulled clear of Robertson, Wood & Thompson.
Not knowing it was the last lap, again due to the information not being displayed, Jewiss took a surprised chequered flag with the rest in pursuit. With Jewiss’s Skill its hard to think he hasn’t won a round earlier, its even harder for Wood, who now takes the lead in the series without even winning around !, and with 4 different makes of kart in the first 4 places, the last round at PFI is going to be a stunner, and we can not wait. Ben Wooldridge won the privateers cup again finishing a creditable 10th overall, with Joe Willoughby 2nd and Clayton Ravenscroft 3rd. Jonny Edgar built his points up with the Fastest lap.
