Patterson ahead at the finish in Minimax at Kartmasters
A solid entry of 24 drivers and some excellent racing all weekend. It was good to see these young drivers enjoying their racing in a fair and respectful manner – well done to all.
Jenson Butterfield – not a lot you could say about the winner’s performance, pole position and lights to flag victory – stunning. Jonny Edgar gave chase after making up places but had to settle for 2nd. Tom Canning looked a strong contender for top three honours but a yellow flag infringement saw his chances slip, Dexter Patterson inheriting 3rd.
The Jenson Butterfield dominance continued for 12 laps of the Final – but several drivers had plans on spoiling his dominance. Dexter Patterson was an impressive leader on Lap 13 but Finlay Bunce was also in the mix taking the lead at Lap 14. Patterson however re-took the lead when it mattered and was first to the flag – as said, impressive. Butterfield was a disappointed 2nd while Bunce was a solid 3rd. Great credit to Tom Canning who worked his way up from the last man on the start grid to a brilliant 4th.
