Another Junior Rotax brace for Hand in Wigan

28 September 2010

Ash Hand continued his march towards the 2010 Formula Kart Stars Junior Rotax title with another brace of impressive wins at Three Sisters in Wigan.

Hand claimed final victories number seven and eight of the year in rounds nine and ten and now needs to just stay out of trouble on the final weekend of the season in order to clinch the title regardless of what his nearest rival Jack Barlow does.

Hand won both finals at the 1000-metre venue with ease despite some very close racing during the heats, especially on Saturday as Barlow and championship newcomer Jack Marshall took the heat wins.

But in the double point finals Hand led from start to finish on both days, beating Barlow and Chad Ryan to the line by five seconds on Saturday and besting Marshall and Chris Middlehurst by four seconds in Sunday's final.

Although Hand holds a commanding lead in the points over Barlow he still needs to contest the final two rounds of the championship at Ellough Park in order to confirm the title.
