Behind Stuart in his class eight car the results were spread around the classes. Philip Thomas was second overall from Class 7 with 18, Aaron Haizelden third from Class 5 with 19 and Craig Allen fourth on 24 in his Class 4 Beetle.

With the Wheelspin Trophy secured Matt Facey handed the keys of his BMW to Duncan Stephens and Nick Farmer who enjoyed the experience although they couldn’t better the 1300 Beetle pairing of Craig and Nigel Allen in the amalgamated Class 3 and 4.

Alan Keat was best Outfit and Chris Dustow leading Solo.

The event was a mixture of traditional lanes supplemented by some grassy venues familiar to competitors who go to the clubs single venue events.
