Cambridgeshire Mini Miglia racers Lee Deegan and Rupert Deeth squabbled over victory in Sunday’s event with Deegan taking a narrow victory to follow up his success in Saturday’s shortened event.

In the earlier wet event, Kane Astin, also from Cambridgeshire, and Deeth completed the podium places while the tricky conditions knocked out nine of the field, including Norwich racers Tony Le May and Justin Cooper.

A stunning last lap in the opening Mini Seven race elevated Andrew Deviny on to the top step of the podium, having unseated both Daniel Budd and Joe Thompson as Max Hunter followed him through to take second.

Deviny raced to a second victory on Sunday while Spencer Wanstall just held off Tom Sanderson and Darren Thomas in their struggle for second while Attleborough’s Morgan Lewis finished seventh and eighth in his category.

Kyle Reid’s mid-race pass on Robbie Dalgleish secured victory in the first Mini Challenge race, a feat he repeated in race two before clinching a hat-trick after demoting Simon Walton.

The wet conditions suited Andy Langley as he easily took victory in the opening Mini Challenge Cooper S race while the second was halted with Jono Davis at the head of the field after an opening-lap incident dropped Langley to the back.

Stuart Lane won race three on the road only to be disqualified for eligibility problems post-race, handing the win to Rob Austin.

Ryan Harper-Ellam controlled the first of the Radical SR1 Cup races and the second, but race two runner-up Ollie Wilkinson lost his place after a 10-second out-of-position start penalty was applied.

Tony Bishop tried his best to unseat Monoposto race one winner Ben Cater only to trail in a lap down after his unsuccessful late attempt. However, he was more successful in race two, passing Cater mid-race to clinch victory while Cater again triumphed in the third.

The Attleborough pairing of Ray and Jordan Honeybone narrowly missed out on second place in their Trackday Championship race.
