Twenty four racers lined up on the grid for the third round of the WHO Racing Formula
One championship. Simon had raised the bar winning the last round with his new Mega-
The heats started at 7pm with Simon and Will exchanging some big scores, Simon setting a 18.65 on white only for Will to trump that with a 19.60 on the same lane.
Despite a few scrappy heats, the standard of racing was high with a few scores beating 20 laps in 2 minutes. Thanks to a spreadsheet upgrade by Andrew, we knew that Gareth lead after the first rotation of two heats, followed by Darren, John and Simon.
The pace really increased during the second rotation. Three racers -
So, at the end of the heats, we had Gareth on pole position with John, Robin and Darren joining him in the A final. The battle for the junior medal would play out between Ashley and Will in the C final.
Mike seems finally to be learning to love his Tomy Turbo. He drove with panache to comfortably win the F final ahead of Daniel, Matt and Ollie.
Callum's win in the E final was even more impressive. He lead from the early stages
The D final saw another close battle, this time between Jack and James. The two swapped

Andy found his stride from the start, but he never could quite shake off Will and

B final. It looked like it was all over after 30 seconds, with Simon building a 2
lap lead -
In the end, Simon steadied his lead and finished just under a lap ahead of Dave with Mark third and Tim not too far behind in fourth. Now we just had the A final to enjoy.
The final race of the night was not unlike the B final. Gareth got away but was attacked
by Darren and then John -
Robin had started with some offs, but suddenly leapt up the leader board into second.
Then John found a rhythm, overtaking Robin and then took time out of Gareth. By this
So we have another new winner at WHO Racing -
Thanks to everyone who took part in tonight's race -
