Merlin Rocket Nationals - A cat and mouse sort of day

While the cat's away - well, Stuart Bithell in this case - the the door was open for his opposition to grab their chance.

Roger Gilbert and James Stewart do not need another invitation and took a hard earned win and the overall lead in Bithell and Pygall's absence.

Gilbert and Stewart navigated a very tight first beat expertly to just round ahead of Jon Turner and Richard Parslow.

Also at the front end of the fleet for the first time were Chris Gould and Chris Kilsby.

Over the next four laps Gilbert and Stewart defended their lead to take the win ahead of the Chris(s).

Chris Jennings and Pete Horn bounced back from the disappointment of gear failure on Tuesday to take third.

Ben and Roz McGrane took another strong result with fourth, moving them to second overall.

Simon Potts and Ally Martin converted to fifth ahead of Jon Turner and Richard Parslow.
