Contact Easter GP – Report

The Contact GP took place for the first time last weekend and it was very well attended as we had 96 drivers at the event. The entries were mainly GT12, also with three heats of 13.5 blinky Touring Cars and one heat of LMP12. The race format was four rounds of qualifying and one final for everyone. For GT12 and Touring Cars the duration was six minutes and for LMP12 it was eight minutes. This was done on round by round qualifying with the best two qualifying results to count towards the final grid position. In qualifying it was very close at the top all day in GT12 between the Zen of Ollie Payne and the Schumacher of Aidan Ripley. It went down to the last qualifying heat, which went to Ollie so he lined up on Pole for the A-final.

For the 13.5 Blinky Touring car class it was Scott Scholey who would come out on top in qualifying and therefore line up on pole position for the A-final. LMP12 saw Andy Murray take three out of the four qualifying rounds so he would also line up on pole. The finals saw many great races and brilliant clean racing by most drivers. There were some very close results in most of the finals.
