Gibson takes last lap Honda Cadet win
In the first round of the 2016 Super One series, Harry Thompson started the Honda Cadet second final on pole from Ben Kasperczak and Caden McQueen and held the lead until lap 10 with Kasperczak only 0.1s behind. Kasperczak took charge for a few laps before dropping to 2nd on the last lap, giving 1st place to Caeson Gibson. After a strong race from Thompson, he was holding on to 2nd but unfortunately dropped to 6th on the last lap.
Gibson took the chequered flag ahead of Kasperczak who was later excluded for “driving in a manner incompatible with general safety” therefore, Caden McQueen took 2nd and Archie Brown was 3rd.
O-plate driver Wesley Mason finished 15th after climbing up 17 places! He had a very good day on Saturday finishing 3rd and 4th in the heats, but had a disappointing final one after he was forced to retire.
Oliver Bearman, who was second fastest in timed qualifying, was excluded from the meeting after the first heat for a fuel anomaly, but he has appealed the decision.
