Mark Ess wins Auto66 Classic title

A successful last meeting at Cadwell Park for us, with 3 wins and a 2nd place in some very iffy conditions at times.
I'm pleased to say I've taken the Auto66 formula Libre title once again. This is the 8th championship I've won on the OW-01, the first was in 2004. Until this weekend I was unbeaten in class this year until Aaron Staniforth gave me a wet weather riding lesson as usual with a classy win on Sunday morning.
The last race of the day was one of the most enjoyable and closest of my racing career, with James Cowton and Aaron staniforth pushing me hard, with multiple passes by him and aaron, back markers soon came into the equation, giving more fun! Luckily I came out on could have gone one of 3 ways!
For this weekend I'd like to thank them both for being true gents off the track, hard as nails on it, but both completely trustworthy safe riders that are awesome to race against. Aaron is the 2016 senior champion, James is the 2016 supertwins champion, so huge congratulations to them both. James was kind enough to loan me a spare battery to help me race yesterday. The true spirit of club racing lives on in Auto66.

So a huge thanks for all of the support throughout 2016 from Peter Day  - hi-lite Signs Ltd - Ady Butler Electrical - David Ess - Paul Duffy .
