Bearman wins but Thompson retains title lead in Honda at Fulbeck
Needing two timed qualifying sessions the best Harry Thompson could do on the joint list was 6th. That list was topped by Sam Heading, Luke Watts and Caden McQueen. But Thompson won both his heats, Oliver Bearman the other.
Thompson led the first three quarters of the first final, including a neutralised period, but Bearman had got the better of Wesley Mason and then moved successfully on Thompson. That put him back to 4th which became 5th as Lucas Ellingham took advantage. Thompson could only recover to 4th again, Bearman winning from Luke Preston and Sam Heading.
Bearman kept up the advantage through the second final with Thompson chasing and a great deal of shuffling amongst the battle for 3rd. Alex Eades and Justin Breward had come off on the opening lap whilst Ellingham rushed up to 3rd, but not for long. Now there was the lead duo, where Thompson found a gap to lead but Bearman struck straight back for the win, and a five kart train for 3rd. McQueen came out on top of that from Coskun Irfan, Ellingham and Ben Kasperczak who had gained ten places. Thompson still holds a massive points lead over McQueen.
