Round 7

Jonny Edgar LGM rd7With Jonny Edgar easily winning round 6, the return of Harry Thompson should make Edgars job a little harder. However this did seem the case as the ‘on form / home track’ Edgar notch up another pole position, with Thompson on grid 4, Dexter Patterson grid 3 and a superb performance from Clayton Ravenscroft on grid 2. The race got under way, with Edgar clearly ahead, behind was a bit of a tangle at the hairpin, costing drivers to drop back, including Lorcan Hanafin, who the day before was challenging for the lead, ended up near the back of the pack. Finlay Bunce, Patterson and Thompson would try and make a plan to catch Edgar, but this was invane as they swabbed between themselves, Edgar quietly moved away into what has to be one of the biggest cadet winning margins for a while. Thompson mean while, with no testing and no racing at Rowrah the day before, managed to get the better of Bunce & Patterson. Edgar took the win by nearly 10 seconds ! ahead of Thompson, Patterson & Bunce, with Brandon Martland & Joseph Taylor 5th & 6th respectively. Top Privateer was Toby Mcdonald in a very respectable 13th overall. After these 2 days the championship is on fire with Jonny Edgar now taking the lead of the series, but with tracks coming up that Thompson is confident at, Patterson is still in with a shout as well if the two fail to finish well.
