The nominations have been made up of drivers that impressed the panel throughout the weekend and now you can play your part in deciding the winner.
Water Swift Restricted – Colbe Pattison.
A tough choice between Colbe and his teammate George House but Pattison edges it as he gained 11 places from his starting positions over the whole weekend compared to George’s 10. After qualifying ninth, heat finishes of 4th and 5th were followed by 3rd in the pre final and then another 3rd place in the final itself
Water Swift – Max Endacott
Running as a privateer for the first time in the class Max ran at the front all weekend regardless of the track conditions. 3rd in qualifying was backed up by a win in heat 2 and another top 3 finish in the pre final. 7th in the final wasn’t a reflection of the speed and racecraft he displayed throughout the two days.
Other potential candidates such as Jarlath Sayer, Archie Lovatt and Archie Owen all incurred penalties
Junior X30 – Morgan Moore
The young Irishman left Shenington with his first top 5 in Junior X30 having started Sundays racing 23rd on the grid in the pre final following heat finishes of 21st and 12th. Gaining 7 places in the pre final, Moore then gained a further 11 places in the final to go from 16th to 5th in the main event
Senior X30 – Khali Atkins
A remarkable weekend in the class with Atkins and Marcus Littlewood finishing 1-2 qualifying, both heats, the pre final and the final. The first ‘perfect’ weekend of his career gives Khali the automatic, and thoroughly deserved nomination
Junior TKM – Aiden Mitchell.
Pole position and a heat win in the rain on Saturday was followed up by a 2nd in heat two, 3rd in the pre final and his long awaited maiden podium finish with 3rd in the final after a race long tactical scrap for the win
TKM Extreme – Kye Springfield
Kye equalled his career best finish with a supremely close 2nd place effort just inches in front of Alfie Garford who was also worthy of the nomination. However Kye’s drive from 8th to 3rd in the pre final and the fact that he kept Garford just inches behind him on the final lap in their fight for 2nd means Kye gets the nod
KZ2 – Josh Price
Josh finally showed everyone the talent that got him all the way to the BTCC as he shook off a DNF in heat one to go from 11th to 6th in the pre final and then move up to 2nd in the final with some pinpoint overtaking on what was a special day for his Moore Racing team
