Nextgen motorsport driver Teddy Wilson was the man on form, fastest in TQ and managing to win both of his heats, the other heat win going to Oliver York. The stage was set for an epic final. Wilson Pole, York 2nd, William Pettitt, Herbie Grout 3 & 4 respectively. The lights went to green on the sun drenched welsh circuit, and it was Pettitt that took the lead, followed by an impressive Alex Quinn who started on grid 7, Wilson had an awful start dropping to 7th and York even worst, down to 11th. Last round winner Kiern Jewiss who and done well to grid up 6th had a small spin at the top of the circuit taking him out of the running and placed him down in 29th place. By lap 5 Quinn looked strong, with Herbie Grout now pushing for the lead. Eclispe motorsport driver Alex McDade had shown form and moved to 3rd, Wilson carefully making his way back up to the front now back in 4th. Grout had a brief spell in the lead, but by passing slowed the pack allowing more to join on the leading train, Pettitt then showed he wanted to lead and did so for the next 6 laps, with Grout following, Wilson meanwhile had moved up again and was now 3rd and in the lead group of 7.
The final two laps, Grout made another move for the lead, with Wilson taking advantage and followed through, so on to the last Lap, Wilson took the lead back from Grout, but this time Pettitt following him through. Grout had a long lung from a little far back and hit the side of Pettitt pushing him wide, however Grout was issued with a 5 place penalty for the collision. At the flag Wilson took a superb, controlled win from Pettitt, York managed to recover to score yet another podium, Jonny Edgar made the best of the last lap to finish 4th overall, with Ethan Hawkey & McDade 5th & 6th. Grout with his penalty eventually finishing 7th. Jewiss from being 29th on lap 1 made a creditable finish in 13th. Leading Privateer Tyler Chesterton had a race to forget, being the only non finisher, out on lap 1. Scotlands Jack Brailsford was the victor at GYG with a 22nd overall, 3rd of the privateers was Abbi Pulling who was 31st overall and also won the best turned out kart award.
