William Pettitt takes his first Little Green Man victory
William Pettitt had his first Little Green Man round win at the Kimbolton circuit making him the fifth different driver to win this year. In the sunshine, Pettitt started from pole, after the set of heats, and lead into the first corner, the Fusion team mates of Oliver York and Zac Robertson managing to find there way around Dextor Patterson on the opening lap, and push past Tom Wood. These three worked together and quickly pulled a gap, away pursuing pack, now headed by Albert Carter. Alex Quinn quietly moved his way through, taking other drivers one by one after a relatively poor start by his standards, hot on his tail was leading privateer Tyler Chesterton. Once these three had reached the front of the battle for 4th place, Carter slowly fell away down the order, with Quinn moving past Wood, these pair pulled clear of the rest. York then past Pettitt for the lead, but Robertson stuck with it and pushed on in 3rd. Lap 13 saw Jonny Edgar fall down the order after lying a strong 6th. On to the last lap and with a final try, York’s manoeuvre but didn’t quite pay off as Robertson found his way through.
So at the line, with both arms in the air, it was Pettitt taking his first LGM win, followed by Robertson who scored his first ever podium and York 3rd. AIM motorsport driver, Tom Wood got the better of Quinn on the last lap, to come home in 4th and 5th respectively. Teddy Wilson after his short break and a change of team finished 6th, with the leading privateer Chesterton 7th, and a superb privateer effort from Toby Stevenson to finish 8th. Oliver York now pulls clear on the points table, but on drop scores, Quinn leads by 1 point !. Its now all down to wire and the last round at P.F. International, who is going to be crowned the 2013 LGM Champion!
