Barrington wins on demanding Summit Point Short

Racers at Summit Point, going into the first corner

James A. Barrington has won the 25 lap event at the Shark Racing Jetta Club race on the Summit Point Short circuit. It was a dramatic race which saw close racing and a huge accident for Tero Dahlberg as he fought for the lead.

Despite Dahlberg qualifying on pole yet again, it was Barrington who got the better start and was leading early on in the race, with Dahlberg desperately trying to fight back and retake the lead.

On lap 14 as Dahlberg came along side Mika Korkeamäki as they battled for 3rd position. They collided, sending Dalberg into a spectacular crash, and both drivers out of the race.

This left James Yates and Simon Trendell, both previous race winners, to battle with Barrington for 1st, and each other for 2nd and 3rd place. On lap 21, Yates passed Trendell and went on to take second place, just 03.490 behind the leader.

Trendell finished in 3rd, with Andrew Cherry in a strong 4th position. Julian Dyer picked up the 5th spot, as other drivers struggled to keep on the challenging track for 25 laps. Petteri Kotovaara recovered to 6th, followed by Michael J Passingham.
