Green Flag and the race is underway.
Mike gets and Early pass on Alex which is the only place he's lost by the end of the race.
Neil and Craig battle hard early on in the race.
Joshua, Sam, and Campbell lining up, Campbell eventually ending up in front.
William and Robert keeping up the Howler Penguin rivalry well. But some misuse of team radios gets frowned upon.
Matt and Ben having fun, Ben eventually ending up 2 places.
A Howler team battle, Matt showing off for the crowd with a few doughnuts.
Sam having another skid, he calls his race of not long after. James Lambert unfortunately has gremlins and retires as well.
Battles up at the front with Sam Hirani and Craig Patteson very close.
Craig passing Mike Bell, the crowd are enthralled.
William badly re-joins sending Neil in a spin.
