With the British Super One Championship first round, aswell as the British Open Championship just around the corner, Next-Gen Motorsport made the trip to Whilton Mill to prepare for this important double-header weekend.

IAME Cadet Drivers Owen Marlow, Oliver Gray, Tyler Read and Honda Drivers Caeson Gibson and Josh McLean were all in action.


Marlow starred in his heats by starting from the back in every single one after a late entry and duly finishing 2nd in all of his heats, gaining a total of 75 places!

Gray and Read also performed strongly, with Gray taking a 7th, 4th and 9th in his heats, and Read taking 11th, 12th and 2nd in his.
This qualified all IAME Drivers well for the Final. Marlow, Gray and Read would start 2nd, 9th and 11th respectively.

Marlow was in the thick of the action for the Grand Final victory, continuing his strong pace from throughout the day, just missing out on the victory by 0.290s!
Gray was sadly knocked down the order at the start, undoing his great work all weekend. Read managed to rise 6 positions from his starting berth, taking a well deserved 5th at the flag.

In Honda Cadet, Gibson and McLean had mixed heats, both having a difficult heat through no fault of their own, with McLean bearing the brunt of the misfortune.

Gibson would line up 7th for the Final and McLean in 16th. Both drivers showed great pace to mix with the leading pack and super competitive field.
McLean gained 7 places, only to be demoted 20s post-race for a bumper infringement.
Gibson finished the race in 7th after featuring in a race long train for the podium spots.

Overall a very good weekend for Next-Gen with all drivers showing great pace, now onto Rissington next weekend!
