Patrick Woods Toth Delivers in Rotax Mini Max

With nine National Finals in the books the final class to hit the track was Rotax Mini-Max, one of the more exciting classes on the week.

Xavier Harris (Energy Kart) was the early leader in the Final ahead of Patrick Woods-Toth (BirelART) and Stefano Lucente (CRG). Harris held the lead for majority of the race while he was under pressure from Woods-Toth. Woods-Toth took the lead from Harris on lap ten, but would lose it a lap later. Coming to the final lap board Woods-Toth bumped Harris out of first but let the Energy driver by so that he won’t receive a penalty.

Coming down to the hairpin in turn five Harris blocked but left just enough room so for Woods-Toth to stick his kart on the inside and take the win. The pass grouped up the leaders but Lucente finished the race in third, unable to pass Harris before the finish line.

Thomas Nepveu (TonyKart) had a disappointing start falling from second to eighth. However the class rookie drove through the field to finish the race in fourth ahead of Liam Rhodes (Maranello) who also had an impressive drive from last to finish fifth. Marco Kacic (BirelART) was the best driver from the west as he finished sixth ahead of Tyler Kozma (Kosmic), Gabriel Savoie (TonyKart), Eamon Lowe (GP Kart) and Simoni Masini (GP Kart) who completed the top ten. Friday heat winner Gianluca Savaglio was in fourth for majority of the race but retired after being involved in a collision in turn six while battling with Lucente.

However the results were altered in post-race tech as Harris was excluded for an issue with his emulsion tube, advancing Lucente to second and moving Nepveu onto the National podium.
