Ethan Vernon then deservedly secured the club's third win in the under-13 Formula 3 final, while in the under-16 Formula 2 A final James Handleigh finished sixth, with Louis Burton claiming fourth spot in the B final.

In the final race of the day, James ­Dalleywater took seventh place in the over 17 Formula 1 A final while Darren ­Foreman finished sixth in the B final.
