Despite challenging qualifying conditions, a stellar effort from the JK Motorsport BMW put Gurney and Tester out on pole for the third consecutive time this season. Steve Gales of Seriously Motorsport came in second in Class S, just ahead of Mangoes Racing’s Darren Goes who rounded out the class in third. Class A qualifying was topped by Martyn Culley of Goblin Racing, with second in class eventually going to Gary Burstow of GNB Racing. Barrie Culley in the sister Goblin Racing Seat finishing qualifying with a third in class. SuperCup newcomer, Kester Cook, set the pace for Class B, putting him fourth on the grid overall, but crucially on Class B pole. Father and Son duo, Ray and Jordan Honeybone sat in second, narrowly ahead of James Goodall in the JRG Racing VW Golf.

When the lights went out, it was the fast starting BMW of JK Motorsport who got the best start, leading the pack through the opening part of the race. Gales in the Seriously Motorsport Seat held second, as Goes from third on the grid bogged down in the damp conditions and fell through the pack.

Class A front runner Martyn Culley in the Goblin Racing Seat held onto the advantage from qualifying to lead the class into the opening rounds, albeit under mounting pressure from the BMW of GNB Racing’s Gary Burstow. Culley could only hold off the BMW for so long however, as Burstow found a way past and managed to gap the Seat as the race progressed.

Class B pole sitter Cook, in the Big Skidz Fiesta had the Clio of Apple Car Centre to contend with right from the go. The Apple Car Centre Car traded lap times with Cook until eventually finding a way pat in the early stages. Third in class was JRG’s James Goodall, ahead of the Thorney Motorsport BMW at the hands of Callum Noble.

As the pit window neared, JK Motorsport was able to hold the advantage in front of the field pitting from the lead. The Two Seat EuroCup’s of Seriously motorsport and Mangoes Racing would be fighting for position in the pit window, as Gales pitted, Goes stayed out in an attempt to get the undercut. A flurry of pit activity, then saw both the Class A and the Class B leaders come into the pits as Apple Car Centre and Goblin Racing headed for the pit lane.

As the dust settled from the pit window, it was the Class S BMW of JK Motorsport out in the lead, a lead they would ultimately convert to a class and overall win in the wet conditions. Seriously Motorsport managed to stay ahead of Goes in the Mangoes Racing Seat, for second and third in class respectively.

Class A was eventually won by B’Stard motorsport, with a well-timed stop allowing them to jump Goblin Motorsports Martyn Culley in the pits, and a technical issue for Burstow elevating them to class win. Second in class fell to Martyn Culley, with third in class awarded to the Seat of Brad Kaylor, just reward for a solid effort.

Class B saw another change in the pits, as Apple Car Centre lost out to the Big Skidz Fiesta. This gave Cook in the Fiesta a debut Class B win in the MSVT SuperCup, ahead of the Apple Car Centre Car, and Thorney Motorsport in Class B third.
