In class A (road going) Dale Reet leads the fight for class honours followed by John Gill and then Carl Robinson. 

In class B (Modified) Chris Boulton leads Ian Boulton and then Iain Dowler whos engine failure at Oulton means he is hungry for a win so we expect to see some hard thought racing to separate the front runners this weekend.
