With the biggest and probably most competitive grids of X30 that the UK has seen
the MLC Motorsport team had a strong line up in both the junior and senior class.
“We had every confidence in our preparation for this race off the back of our senior
victory the month earlier, but it’s always going to be tough against this type of
competition, it was not you average small club grid so competition would be strong”
35 juniors lined up for timed qualifying and MLC pair Cameron Boedler and Jake
Bowman both only doing two days ever at the track nearly secured a front row lockout
for the team eventually ending on pole position and fourth respectively
In the pre final both juniors were running in the top three from the 34 kart field
unfortunately towards the end of the race Bowman suffered some damage and dropped to
10th with Boedler holding strong for 2nd to start his first ever UK race and first
race at PFI ever on the front row.
In the final Boedler drive away with the lead pack of 5 ending in a great battle in
the last few laps eventually finishing 3rd. Bowman was not so lucky getting caught
in huge crash first lap ending the expected charge back to the front.
In seniors it was not as plain sailing an engine misfire meaning senior driver Ollie
Varney had to make a charge from the back in the final carving through the quality
field to eventually bag a another podium for the team. Making it a double podium for
the MLC team in the best grids so far the UK has seen.
