Racers into the first turn at Jefferson

Shark Racing Jetta Club regular has won the Summit Point Jefferson even by a huge 27.555s margin from Jamie Wilson, who was in several intense battles from start to finish.

Jamie Wilson fought with both James Yates, and Julian Dyer throughout the race, resulting in a last corner pass around the outside of Dyer on the last lap

Jones had qualified on pole with a time of 56.791s, with James A Barrington just 0.057s slower behind him.

After a strong start, Jones held off Barrington until the second place driver fell to the back of the field after a penalty. This left Jones with a healthy lead which he build on as other drivers battled eathother behind him.

Wilson, Yates and Dyer fighting for what would become 2nd place

Jamie Wilson passed Julian Dyer early on in the race, but after a small off 3rd place driver James Yates and Wilson started to fight hard for position. This allowed Dyer to catch up with the pair of them, putting Yates under more pressure as he tried to find a way past Wilson.

Yates eventually spun off the track, leaving Dyer to try and catch Wilson in the late stages of the race. On the last couple of laps the two traded places, and the two drivers were side by side as they went in to the tight hairpin at the end of the track.
