The New Era class saw Harper take a STORMING P2, with Rhys in 10th, so both continued where they left off yeaterday by making the top 10!
Heat 1 – C50 Pro – Saw Albert WIN, with Luca Holmes-Balac taking 3rd and what would eventually be the FASTEST time of the day (64.784)! Cooper crossed in 8th. New Era saw Harper continue his fine form taking P2.
Heat 2 – C50 Pro – A few penalties scuppered another awesome race. Luca took 4th, Cooper in 5th. New Era saw the two Tornado drivers crossing in the top 10 again. New Era saw Harper take P6 and Rhys back in the top 10 in 10th!!!
Final – C50 Pro – A storming race saw Luca’s Round 2 finish with 2nd place, Albert took 5th and Cooper 8th. Narrowly missing out on a top 10 finish was Harley in 11th, then Jenson in 16th and Ronnie 17th. The New Era boys didn’t fail to dissapoint. Harper continued his top 10 performance taking 7th and Rhys crossed in P13!
Cracking Round two guys. All the Tornado boys looked FAST!!!
Sunday Whilton Mill – Round 3
Another awesome day of racing was to be had. The Tornado boys had already set the precedent yesterday with Luca taking fastest lap of the day. We knew we’d be fast and there would be even more silverware to be taken today!!!
Qualifying got off to a flier in the C50 Pro class. Luca qualified on pole, Cooper in 5th, Albert 8th and Harley 10th…FOUR drivers in the top 10! Ronnie made P14 and Jenson 18th! Harper Das took 8th for the NEW ERA class and Rhys David-Robinson coming home 14th.
Heat 1 – C50 Pro – Harley took 6th, Cooper 8th (because of a penalty), Luca 9th, Albert 10th (again, because of a penalty). Ronnie narrowly missed the top 10, crossing in p13 and Jensen 15th. New Era saw both driver cross in the top 10 with Harper cross in 8th and Rhys 10th.
Heat 2 – This time Albert was lead Tornado driver, crossing in P4, closely followed by Cooper in 5th. It was one of those races, where it just didnt work out for our other drivers. Harper taking 6th and Rhys in 10th!
Final – C50 Pro – a nail biting final saw Harley back on the podium with a P2, Luca in P3, Albert in P4 and Cooper in P6!!! Cracking performance. Albert took fastest lap of the day with a 65.194, cementing the fact that the Tornado engines have huge power after taking the fastest laps in ALL the Super One rounds!!!! The New Era boys had another solid performance with Harper finishing P6 and Rhys rounding out the top 10 in 10th!
Fantastic Round two guys. All the Tornado boys looked FAST!!!
