Ipswich Club Championship, Round 7

KA4 Junior, Yet again these juniors were all super competitive. Having shown really good speed early on, Oscar Targett just came up short and brought it home in 5th. Having started on the front Ryan Newton was a favourite to bag a podium finish but he too just failed to get there and finished 4th. From a second row start it was Corsa apparel driver #58 of Annabelle Rolfo that came through to 3rd. After starting from pole the relative new comer to the class the #26 of Ethan Feather very nearly got a win and came home second! But what a magnificent drive from the #57 of Kurtis Tennant to eventually hunt down Feather take the lead and the win!
