Matt started the weekend with 555 points with closest contender, Tommy Downes on 468, a good finish in race one on Saturday would clinch the rookie title for Matt, but this is racing, anything can happen and it ain’t over til it’s over!

Matt’s first race, race 10 on the program was started, however a start line collision meant it was red flagged to be re-run later on in the program.

Having qualified 7th on the grid, Matt kept it steady and brought it home in 6th on the overall grid and 2nd in class, behind Tommy Downes (who took all 4 class wins over the weekend), he’d done enough to secure the rookie championship.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed cheering Matt on from both the track and the comfort of our own homes via the TSL live timing website. From all of us at Lamonde Automation, well done Matt and we look forward to supporting you next season as well.
