At lunch Fack lead having not dropped a point but an afternoon rain shower added to his score, but still managed to become the eighth different winner of the season. Flashman excelled in his similar MSR to win the independent blue class.
Meanwhile Jerome Fack double drove with identical twin John to complete the podium beating Ian Wright on a tie break. Reigning British double champion Roland Uglow could only manage fifth after a poor second round. Simon Kingsley looked set for third place overall but engine issues two hills from end dropped him out of the top ten overall.
