Another brilliant year of the PKC has come to an end. An incredible night of racing saw the event enjoy packed grids and some of the best on track action ever!
In the heavyweights, Michael Lloyd Davies (Carmarthen) overcame a returning Damien Holmes (Haverfordwest) to take the win although new driver Rhys Collins (Llanelli) made an immediate impact to finish third. Collins hopes to compete in the PKC full time in 2019 and looks set to be an early title contender.
In the lightweights, Stuart Davis (Milford Haven) took his maiden PKC win ahead of Colin Rowland Mason (Haverfordwest) and Joshua Partis (Milford Haven).
The intermediates continued to provide thrills with Ashley Hutchings (Milford Haven) also taking his maiden PKC victory with closest rival James Williams(Swansea) coming second with Matthew Morgan (Pembroke) in third.
As the racing drew to a close, the drop rounds were applied and the results were calculated. A huge congratulations to our 2018 Champions and trophy winners;
2018 Heavyweight Champion - Michael Lloyd Davies
2nd - Andrew Cook (Clydach)
3rd - Andrew Martin
Michael was able to secure the title early on as the grid for the heavyweights decreased but Michael proved his ability by consistently pushing and often beating leading drivers from the other weight divisions.
2018 Lightweight Champion - Sam Joseph
2nd - Colin Rowland Mason
3rd - Joshua Partis
Sam has now become an unprecedented 6 time PKC Champion. Wrapping the title up with a round to spare shows just how good he is. It hasn't been a walk in the park however with Colin pushing and actually beating Sam on several occasions. Joshua could never be ruled out either. He was always there and on the pace and has been very unfortunate to not win an event this year.
2018 Intermediate Champion - James Williams
2nd - Ashley Hutchings
3rd - Tess Howell (Drefach Felindre)
The competition has been incredibly tough this year in this new for 2018 weight division. The top 5 drivers have been close on pace and talent all season and it has been tough to pick a favourite. James rose to the challenge and put in several great races but was under great pressure from Ashley whose form has been on the upward trend all year. Tess has been consistently on the pace this year and with some brilliant drives inside was able to jump into the top 3 at the final round.
2018 Ladies Cup winner - Tess Howell
Tess consistently beats her male counterparts and is a great ambassador for the PKC.
2018 Masters Cup winner - Andrew Cook
It was close between Andrew, Mike Holder (Llanycefn) and Tess Howell but Andrew was able to take advantage of the points situation to claim the trophy.
2018 Rookie of the Year - Wais Kuba (Cardiff)
After a string of strong drivers, Wais has been entertaining to watch on track but has also shown a level of competitiveness that could lead to greater things.
2018 Fastest Lap Challenge winner - Sam Joseph
Blisteringly fast all season. Sam was a worthy winner of the award.
