Lightweight Sprint Championship 2013, Rd.7

Final 1

Championship leader James Reveler took pole for final 1 ahead of Rich Ward – fresh from his endurance victory the previous day. Frederick Gallagher and Greg Aaron made up row 2 with title contender Luke Cousins 5th.

The front runners all got away cleanly with Reveler building a 0.8s lead after the first lap. The top 4 remained largely unchanged for most of the race with Reveler extending his lead to 2s. Further back, Miguel Hall and Lucke Cousins were fighting over 5th. Rich Ward had managed to cut Reveler’s lead over the last few laps and briefly took the lead with a couple of laps to go. However, Reveler came back at him and managed to just about keep the charging Ward at bay over the final 2 laps to win by 0.2s. A frantic last couple of laps saw Cousins drop Hall, Gallagher and Greg Aaron to claim the final place on the podium.

Final 2

Having set the fastest lap of the day, Daniel Truman found himself on pole for the second final ahead of Reveler, Cousins, Greg Aaron and Rich Ward. A similar looking grid for final 2 meant we could be in for another close and exciting race.

Once again the leading quartet got away in grid order and maintained position while a battle for 5th emerged between Migel Hall and Greg Aaron. Once Hall had got clear, he made short work of passing Rich Ward. Up ahead, Reveler had been shadowing Truman for lap after lap and eventually made a move on lap 11. Once ahead, he pulled out by nearly 0.2s per lap to make it a double win. A mature drive from Truman saw him 2nd with COusins once again 3rd to keep his championship chances alive.
