It was a momentous night for Alex Ferrigno -
There was also a big welcome for Siân, Owen, Colin and Jim -
The track was tricky and practice was essential. It looked like the cars with the

As usual, racers gradually found their feet during the heats. The first hour -
There were some wry smiles when Alex posted the top scores of the evening in his first two heats. His overall score of 50.00 was not far off the big boys. Not bad for a 6 year old on his debut.
When things panned out, it was an all-
The junior medal would be a straight fight between Hannah and Callum. For a while it looked like Hannah would take the medal without a fight, but both Andrew and Andy scraped past her score in the final two heats, much to Hannah's disgust.
The 'G' final was a McCann / Hughes affair. Stephen had been a helping hand to Owen and Siân all night, but he showed no mercy in the final to take 25th place. Hopefully we'll see Owen and Siân again on their next trip down south.
The 'F' final was saw Rick up against the grown-

The 'D' final was the first of four stunningly close races to finish off the evening.

The 'C' final was the junior showdown between April's F1 junior winner Hannah and
the reigning junior champion Callum. And what a race it was. Callum's icy focus is
becoming legendary and he blasted into a lead from the start. Hannah was nervous
and made a couple of errors early on. The race settled down with the two juniors
trading fast, error-
With about twenty seconds to go, Callum faltered. A couple of offs and Hannah saw her chance. Realising that the clock was running down, she threw caution to the wind, managed to overtake Callum with a few seconds to go and then crashed. Callum, just behind, snuck through for probably the closest win in his time at WHO. Hannah had her head in her hands and Callum managed a smile in victory lane.
Then we had the 'B' final with three Classic Cup cars -
Andrew's night had started very well with his good-
John had his family cheering him on for what would be an unlikely win in the 'A'
final against three guys who had completely outshone him in the heats. But it was
John who lead most of the race. A scrappy start left John out front and Mike dead
last. Robin and Darren continued to struggle, whilst Mike moved through the field
and started to haul in John's Mega-
With his lead evaporating, John over-
So, with the results in, Mike jumps into the lead of the F1 championship, Hannah maintains her advantage in the junior championship and Dave takes the lead in the Classic Cup.
So, having successfully avoided any Jubilee puns, it's goodnight and see you next month for the WHO Modified race.
