Hugh Gurney wins the 2019 Season Finale

Qualifying painted a familiar picture, with the M3 of Hugh Gurney and Colin Tester taking pole position ahead of guest Graham Crowhurst and Steve Gales in third. In Class A the leading car was farther and son pairing Nik and Les Barton, ahead of Martyn Culley in second, and Barrie Culley third. Class B “pole” was taken by Callum Noble ahead of class title rival Ray Honeybone in second and Alex Tait in third. The SuperCup Championship leader Darren Goes qualified eleventh on the grid, behind both of his Class S rivals.

A great start for the leading BMW’s saw them fight for position straight off the line, but it was Crowhurst who had the edge and lead the first lap. Not to be out down however, the Gurney/Tester BMW soon found a way past to take the lead of the race, a lead that despite a safety car period, they managed to hold until the pit stops. Just behind the lead pack was Championship leader Goes, fighting fellow Seat EuroCup Steve Gales for fourth on the road. Goes managed to find a way past the Seat of Gales but wasn’t able to pull away as the pair traded lap times until the pit window opened.

In Class A a good start by Culley in the number 10 Seat and technical issues for the Barton pair, saw the Class A lead change early on. Just behind Barrie Culley had also snatched second, while Kaylor climbed up through the field having started at the back following qualifying issues. Despite all the Class A cars being in close battles with other cars, this was how they stayed until the pit window. Class B Was in the hands of class pole sitter Callum Noble, after an early off caused a lengthy stop for Ray Honeybone in the Clio. This gave Noble a comfortable lead over Tait in the Clio as the pit stops started.

With the dust settled after the pit stops. It was the BMW of Gurney and Tester who emerged in the lead, now with the team of Baldwin and Faisca in the 370Z in second ahead of Crowhurst in third. Despite a chards from the 370Z and Crowhurst's BMW the pair were unable to do anything about the leading BMW of Gurney and Tester, and the lead pair took the last win of the season. Second in Class S was Steve Gales, ahead of Goes in third, who followed Gales in second home to take the 2019 SuperCup Championship Title. Class A was taken by Martyn Culley to again take a Class A title, Barrie Culley came home in second ahead of Class A rivals Kaylor and the pair of Getino and Martin. Further down the field Noble in his BMW help off Tait in the Clio to take the class win and with it the class title, Honeybone in the Clio came home in third.
