MSA British Junior Kart Championship

Round 1, PFI - 21/22 March 2009

After a repechage to sort out the last four places on the thirty strong grid for the first final, Sennan Fielding made a break at the start and thereafter was never headed.  Having traded second with a fast starting Stefan Lyttle, Macaulay Walsh surged clear of the third place battle.  Jake Dennis, with a reasonable start, worked his way through to chase down Walsh, whilst Alex Albon, from grid three, fell down to thirteenth avoiding incidents, stormed back to fifth.  Dennis was now second and in hot pursuit of Fielding, closing to within a tenth of a second. 

In the second final, Dennis and Fielding had a tremendous dice until Walsh intervened, Dennis dropping to fifth behind Albon and Jordan King.  As Albon vaulted into the lead, Dennis was intent on following, scraping past Walsh and Fielding on consecutive laps to reel in Albon.  The latter had to go into full defensive mode, the pair side by side through the last lap with Albon taking victory by 0.06 seconds with Albon admitting: "I was lucky to hold him off."
