the restart, Ferguson again takes the lead, with Mouner and Young Bailey right there. Mouner

gives Ferguson a little nudge going into turn 3. On the front stretch, Mouner tries passing

Ferguson on the inside and spins him out. Young Bailey forced to move to the outside to miss

the mayhem, and Young Brodie can’t get it turned enough in time and just slightly hits the wall

in turn 1. Ferguson is not a happy camper! On the restart, its Young Bailey and Day and Young

Bailey scoops the lead. Cockerill has third and Mouner fourth. Mouner passes Cockerill on the

outside for third. Ferguson is now challenging Cockerill for fourth. Meanwhile Young Brodie has

caught Ferguson and is dogging his bumper. Oh, did he just give Ferguson a nudge…?

Meanwhile, Young Bailey is leading, Mouner second and Day third. Ferguson pushes Cockerill


through the apex of turn 3 and 4, and next lap nudges him a couple of times. A couple of laps

later, Day spins coming out of turn 4, then Mouner spins going into turn 2. Apparently there

was oil on the track from another car. Young Bailey takes the chequered flag! Cockerill second,

Ferguson third and Young Brodie fourth. Mouner rounds out the top five.
