McKenzie takes Cadet title.

A second place finish sealed the 2010 Easykart UK Cadet title for Ronan McKenzie as his main rival Tom Thickpenny suffered his worst result of the year in a tense final round.
E-Plate holder Ronan McKenzie snatched the 2010 Easykart UK Cadet Championship title in a pulsating final round of the series at Forest Edge.

McKenzie came in to the eighth and final round of the season at the Hampshire venue trailing Tom Thickpenny by ten points before dropped scores but tied for the points lead when each driver had their worst round deducted.

But a controlled drive to second place behind William Stowell in the final was enough to secure the title with Thickpenny forced to start from the back of the grid following an opening lap clash with Kieran Wragg in the prefinal.

With McKenzie tailing polesitter Stowell throughout the 18-lap final, taking the chequered flag just two tenths behind, Thickpenny was left to try and overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds from the ninth and final row of the 18 strong grid.

Despite a fighting drive Thickpenny could only finish eleventh, his worst result of the year and thus the one round he was allowed to drop. This left him nine points behind McKenzie in the final standings despite winning three times to McKenzie's two.

Stowell's second win of the year helped secure third in the points table a mere nine points behind Thickpenny while Jenson Murchison's second consecutive podium result helped elevate him to seventh overall.

Murchison's fellow novices Matthew Taylor, Matthew Round-Garrido, Andrew Dutton and Ethan Hawkey finished their respective seasons on a high in fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh places with Sam Faulkner, Wragg and Zack Nickson completing the top ten.
