ROBERTSON TAKES FIVE
Round 5 of the LGM series at Buckmore Park, was taken in style by Zach Robertson, after 6 qualify heats it was local boy Keirn Jewiss who scored the pole and after the standing start, Jewiss and Robertson worked together to pull clear of the pack, not quite of the same pace was Tom Wood & Lewis Thompson who did the same pulling clear of Finlay Bunce, Teddy Wilson. Last round winner Dexter Patterson was some what stuck in the heavy pack of drivers in 12th and Mario Mills who had come from the B final made an impressive start coming from grid 28 to 13th on the opening lap, Josh Rafferty show his pace with a fastest lap within the pack and worked his way through. Jewiss and Robertson maintained their cool all the way to the last lap where Jewiss went into defence mode, thinking he was safe left a small gap at the second hairpin, Robertson seized his chance and slid his kart under Jewiss.
Jewiss used all his skill to try and retain the lead and nearly doing so, but at the line it was Robertson taken his Maiden win and also making it five different winners from five round, Jewiss a very close second, Wood, who is still yet to win a round held off Thompson for the last step of the podium. Bunce having the best of the season finishing 5th ahead of Rafferty who got the better of Wilson and managed to pull clear. Joe Turney was very unlucky to get spun out on the very last lap after lying 7th. In the privateers cup, Ben Wooldridge kept up his tally of 5 out 5 and finishing 9th overall, with Joe Willoughby 2nd and Alex Simmons 3rd. Wood head’s the points table, with Robertson dedicating his win to his Dad as it was fathers day.
