Patterson dominates but Butterfield leads after Larkhall
Along with the other Rotax classes Minimax has two rounds left of this year’s Super One series and while Dexter Patterson won both races at Larkhall, Jenson Butterfield still has a good points lead.
Although Butterfield was in charge through the Saturday heats after topping TQ from Dexter Patterson and Tom Canning, Patterson outwitted him in both Finals.
Tom Canning and Jonny Edgar both came off at the first Final start, Canning black-flagged whilst Edgar recovered to 10th. Butterfield had taken the lead but Patterson crept closer until past and through with Lorcan Hanafin joining them for a blanket finish.
Patterson and Butterfield broke away in the second Final and stayed in that position to the chequer whilst Hanafin had a steady 3rd. Canning charged through the pack from the back and eventually beat Edgar for 4th. Butterfield is still well ahead in the points table and maybe did not wish to take any risks.
