Oliver York has taken the LGM X30 UK Tour Championship with a round to spare in the Junior X30 class, after a 2nd place finish at Whilton Mill, rounding off a dominant season!

Coles Racing pair of Oliver York and Bhavmeet Singh took the trip to Whilton Mill for the eigth round of the Little Green Man Series ran X30 UK Tour.

York had the chance to put the title beyond reach at this race by outscoring his nearest rivals.

The opening heat saw York start 21st and Singh start 25th. Great race pace allowed York to carve his way through the field, setting the fastest lap on his was to gaining fourteen positions - crossing the line in 7th position.
Singh was not as a fortunate, as a difficult race saw him knocked back that he was unable to recover from - finishing in 26th position.

The second heat for York was another strong drive through the pack. Going off from 15th on the grid, York made quick work of the drivers around him to vault himself up to 6th by half distance. Into the final lap he made a bold move stick, climbing two further places and finishing the race in 4th.
Singh's second race was a luckless one. After a solid start from 16th on the grid, he was shuffled down the pack after a lunge from a rival driver - forcing him off the track. He managed to recover, but only to 27th position at the flag.

York's final heat involved him starting from 8th on the grid. Two brilliant laps at the start of the race vaulted him up to 2nd position in the race. He reeled in the race leader but was unable to make a move stick - finishing his heat in 2nd position and giving himself pole position for the final.
Singh experienced another luckless final heat, meaning he would have to come through the B Final. Starting from 16th on the grid, he made steady progress through the field, gaining four positions in total to finish in 12th position.
Sadly he wouldn't qualify for the A Final, but the experience will hold him in good sted for the final round at PF International.

Going off pole position in the final, York had the title in his sights! An early scrap for the lead with a rival driver saw the lead change back and forth multiple times until lap 10 when York made the move stick and pulled a gap.
As the race neared the conclusion, rival driver Callum Bradshaw caught York and made a move for the lead - York knowing his championship position didn't fight him, instead he stuck to his rear bumper for the final laps - finishing 0.2s behind in 2nd position, therefore taking the LGM X30 Junior title with a round to spare!
