Joe Kerry takes British Open GP 200mm title


The British Open GP 2017 was held at the Cotswolds track situated within Kemble airfield. The forecast for the whole weekend was looking very good with temperatures in excess of 23 C degrees. As well as being the open GP, the event would also double up and use its results as round six of the national series. After four rounds of qualifying it was Capricorn driver Joe Kerry who took the TQ with 2014 World Champion Alexander Hagberg in second and Alex Thurston in third.

The final got underway with Joe pulling away very quickly at the front in the first few laps. Alex was fighting with Alexander for 2nd place which only helped Joe pull further away. When the first fuel stops had played out, Joe was able to start saving tyres whilst still increasing the gap. After 30 minutes of racing Joe took the win 2 laps ahead of John Zottl who just came through to take 2nd with Alexander Hagberg completing the podium in 3rd.
