M32 World Championship - Fast Phil marches on regardless

Phil Robertson ignored the good advice of his mother and rose from his sick bed to contest the third day of the M32 World Championship in Marstrand, Sweden.

The Kiwi skipper of ChinaOne Ningbo extended his overall lead after another solid performance across a long but fruitful five-race afternoon.

There were five different race winners Saturday, including Robertson who got his win in race two.

Robertson’s voice was sounding less hoarse than 24 hours earlier, the New Zealander perhaps mindful that his mother might be watching from the other side of the world.

Robertson now holds a nine-point lead over Denmark’s Jonas Warrer who sits in second place just a point in front of CFA Sport Racing skippered by Chris Steele from New Zealand.

Topping the Corinthian owner-driver standings is Don Wilson, whose Convexity sits just four points off the podium, ready to pounce on any final-day errors by the pros.
