As i mentioned in my last post the academy went to curborough on the 15th may.
Mike Hart, Wes Fox and Merlin Edwards headed up group 1 with Kurt Brady, David Mezies and Mat Rigby leading group two.
Very little changed up front other than it was mike Hart not Kurt Brady to post the fastest time but each won their group for the second time. Wes Fox once again finished second in group 1 but it was Joel Wymer who pipped Merlin Edwards to third place to move into 4th in group one.
In group 2 Tim Abbott was a man on fire to turn 6th at Aintree into 2nd at curborough which meant David Menzies had to settle for third and Matt rigby for 4th.
putting both the group Tables together gives us Mike Hart and Kurt Brady in joint first(40pts), followed by Wes Fox(36pts) and David Menzies(35pts), Matt Rigby and Merlin Edwards share 4th (33pts), Tim abbot(32pts) leads Joel wymer by one point for 5th and 6th.
Here's how the points for the Academy work:
The first 18 finishers in each group are all awarded points as follows. 20-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2
So there's alot of points an offer and its going to be very hard for anyone to draw out an unassailable lead over just 7 events. Next up is the last of the sprint Events at Snetterton, Then its off to rockingham for the first head to head race where, if the you tube videos of previous years are anything to go by, anything can happen.
