Danish driver Nortoft takes KF2 crown.

For the first time in the 25 year plus history of the Super One Championship a non British driver has won a title as Denmark's Jacob Nortoft provisionally claimed the KF2 title at Whilton Mill.
Jacob Nortoft became the first non British driver to win a Super One title as he provisionally wrapped up the KF2 Championship at Whilton Mill.

The Danish driver shrugged off an influx of drivers from the recently cancelled Super KF class to provisionally seal the KF2 Championship with one round of the series remaining.

With KF2 being adopted as the premier class in Britain in 2011 Nortoft had to battle against the biggest field of the year as nine former Super KF runners switched to KF2 to create a combined grid of 18.

Although both point scoring finals at the 1100-metre Daventry venue went to SKF drivers James Godbehere and Mark Litchfield Nortoft was able to stay out of trouble and finish the first rain-hit final in ninth place.

Significantly for Nortoft, ninth place on the road was third amongst the KF2 regulars and several places in front of his nearest title rival, Alex Walker.

The track had dried for the second final, giving Nortoft a bit more confidence to attack the very physically demanding circuit and from his starting position on the fifth row he rose to fourth by the end behind former SKF drivers Litchfield, Jordan Chamberlain and Jonathan Walker.

With Alex Walker down in ninth place Nortoft now has enough of an advantage in the championship that would allow him to miss the final round of the championship at PFI and still take the title.
