Jewiss keeps his cool in the heat
Kiern Jewiss drove to a superb victory at the 3rd round of the LGM series. Jewiss had the perfect weekend in the beautiful Lincolnshire sunshine by taking pole position in very full heats, along side him was championship leader Alex Quinn, with William Pettitt on grid 3 and a fantastic effort from leading privateer Tyler Chesterton on grid 4. After a few warming up laps the race was finally under way with the field managing to spread themselves out, Jonny Edgar was the biggest loser at the start having to take avoiding action and spinning on the grass. Quinn and Pettitt took an early lead with Jewiss dropping back to 6th place. The race was made up of two’s all trying to push one another. Mid race Jewiss looked to be struggling with pace and a gap had appeared, 6th looked to be the best for him. Oliver York, Tom Wood & Ethan Hawkey who showed great pace in the heats, all started to close on the two leaders. With 2 laps to go, defence mode kicked in and the front pace slowed, now it was a Fusion team freight train and nothing could go wrong, could it ?
The final lap, and it looked as if any one of the five could win, but as the places changed and everyone being so close, it happened, Hawkey and Quinn had come together involving everyone, Jewiss mean while, safe in 6th saw everything and took avoiding action driving up the inside to take the lead on to the final straight. With both hands punching the sky, Jewiss took the win with York pushing him over the line, Wood took 3rd, with Herbie Grout also making use of the shunt to finish 4th. Probably the best race we have seen this year, but it does mean that York now heads the championship, Wood moves up to 2nd, and Quinn with his two wins down to 3rd. Next stop Wales !
