Milton Keynes


On a windswept, cloudy day in Milton Keynes, Daytona Milton Keynes hosted the fifth installment of its SuperChamps season, where Sodi Light & Heavy drivers battle it out on the same track, at the same time, as the DMAX Light & Heavy drivers! The track layout was 'Cliff-Drop' which provides a challenging off-camber chicane on the run down towards the traditional eighth corner of the traditional international layout, adding about four seconds in lap time.
In the Sodi Lightweight category, the race would be closely contested at the top, between Luke Power and current championship leader Matthew Glazebrook, but Matthew was never able to quite get close enough to make an overtake, so it would be Luke that would take victory by eight tenths of a second over Matthew, with Adam Green showing good form to return to the podium in third place, twenty seconds off the two leaders.
The DMAX Lightweight category saw a driver who started their first season in DMAX this season, but yet to win a round, but today, Dom Balasaitis would take a commanding victory, leading every lap as well getting the fastest lap, Dom would win by thirteen seconds over Jamie Tiley-Gooden in second place, and James Bettison with a round to forget, coming home in third.
The DMAX Heavyweight category was where we saw the closest racing of the event, James Brown and Kuba Wozniak, our title contenders, fought tooth and nail in the final minutes of the race, after James made a mistake at the challenging Cliff-Drop chicane, allowing Kuba to close back up, Kuba would clinch first position with just five laps to spare, taking victory by just two tenths of a second after James Brown applied serious pressure in the closing stages, not quite enough and James will know that round was there for the taking! Lee Schnitzler had a much tamer race, but collected good points in securing third position.
The Sodi Heavyweight category, was very much dominated by Charlie Fenton who finished a lap ahead of his rivals Aiden and Hamish, who had a very close on track battle in the final ten minutes of the race, Aiden would prevail and come home in second place with Hamish in third, Charlie Fenton would take the top step again after another fine display.
