Qualifying was very close on Sunday morning, but Aaron managed to get the pole position and he then went on to win all his three heats, while nobody could catch him.

The final saw some close racing with Calan Lamont on Aaron’s bumper for the full 15 laps. The King Edward VII Academy pupil crossed the line for the chequered flag, the number 1 podium spot and the full house once again.

The team will be racing again at Rowrah in Round 4 of the Cumbria Championship next weekend which they are also leading.

At Donington Park last weekend, Wright secured the perfect result with pole position for both races, top step of the podium for both races and fastest lap for good measure. Wright now ranks second in Class B of the 2018 750 Motor Club Royal Purple Hot Hatch Championship.
