UK Autograss Championships 2019 R3 Juniors

It was an even break and coming out of the first turn it was Jamie Buckland (H90) who was ahead. Behind they were running close with three drivers running side by side, Ruben Hage (N35), Josh Julian (SC22) and Joe Alrdridge (L34), a mistake from Aldridge saw him drop out of the running, with Kyle Newman (BC99), Joey Hollingsbee (IK888) and Leo Purchase (SR29) joining this battle. The battle behind allowed Buckland to pull away, whilst in the closing few laps the rest of the field started to settle into their positions. Buckland took the win with Newman second and Julian third. Fourth place went to Hollingsbee ahead of Hage and Jamie Barlow (WS34). Problems for Purchase saw him drop to the back and crawl over the line, whilst Alrdridge was a retirement.

The race was on for second place with James Pinches (R1), Reece Wetherick (IK99) and Emily Richardson (N592) all in contention. Thompson continued to pull away throughout the race to take a comfortable race win to score maximum points from the weekend. Pinches held onto second from Richardson and Wetherick. Archie Lewis (H909) was safe in fifth ahead of Oliver Eggleton (IK149) who picked up a green flag dropping him to eighth.
