Kenneally takes debut S1 wins at Llandow
Bray Kenneally took two stunning maiden Super One victories lifting him to 3rd in the championship standings behind Harry Thompson and Joseph Taylor.
The AIM Motorsport driver had to settle for 4th in the timed qualifying joint results behind Thompson, Van Knapton and Arvid Lindblad.
The latter went on to be probably the youngest driver to win a heat in Super One, Thompson taking the other two and initially leading the first final. Kenneally soon took over at the front, throwing off further lead challenges from Thompson, Joseph Taylor and Georgi Dimitrov to win by a nose width. Championship leader Thompson was forced to settle for 4th behind Dimitrov and Taylor aided by a late race clash between him and Linblad.
However Final 2 was the highlight of the weekend as Kenneally had to contend with no less than half a dozen Fusion karts plus several others as a lead pack of ten broke away. But every time either Thompson or Joseph Taylor forged ahead Kenneally fought straight back, fearful that he would be elbowed to the rear of the lead group. With a lap and a half to go, just as Kenneally was looking at his most vulnerable Thompson and Taylor began to battle over 2nd, delaying each other and allowing Kenneally to make his escape to a popular win. Thompsons’ move for 2nd on the last lap on Taylor allowed Dimitrov to follow through with Jonny Wilkinson climbing up to 5th.
