David lifts Jedi title athisfirst attempt

JEDI knight David Hodgson is celebrating a stunning title victory in only his first full season out of kart racing.

For the teenager from Kirklevington, near Yarm, clinched the Formula Jedi Championship in sensational style.

In the penultimate round of the national single-seat series for up-and-coming drivers at Snetterton, he recorded victories in both races and set a lap record to boot.

"I'm over the moon," said Hodgson. "The win in my first race was enough to secure the title but I still wanted to win the second race as well.

"That's 11 wins and a second this season now, which is better than I expected to be honest.

"I've had a lot of help from two of my dad's friends, Ted and Derek, and I'd like to thank them for everything they've done for me."

PAUL Veazey of Middlesbrough was left cursing "a stupid mistake" after missing out on victory in the penultimate British Superstock Cup round at Donington on Sunday.

The Astro Kawasaki rider had tailed leader Peter Ward for much of the race and sat tight behind him before making a move on the final lap.

"I knew how and where to pass him - I had him weighed up," said Veazey.

"But when I made my move I went down too many gears - it was a stupid mistake."

But Veazey's second place in the race assured him of the runners-up spot behind Ward in the overall championship, with one round left.

And he has agreed a deal to stick with Astro Kawasaki next season, and step up into the National Superstock Championship.

Guisborough's Dennis Hobbs (Nvidia Yamaha) qualified an impressive tenth in the British Superbike Championship but was a non-finisher in both races.

ARTHUR Robinson wrapped up the Northern Saloon and Sports Car Championship in fine style as the series reached its climax at Croft.

Darlington and District MC's two-day meeting again produced a feast of track action, with the final two NSSCC rounds topping the bill.

Robinson took his Westfield SE to a pair of class E victories, setting a lap record in the process on Saturday.

He finished second in Saturday's race for class A, E, F and G cars behind the Ford Fiesta of Chris Doherty.

He crossed the line behind Doherty again on Sunday only this time Yarm's Mark Campbell (Lotus Elan) led them both home to take victory.

Campbell was forced out of Saturday's race with three laps to go but made amends a day later.

Both B, C and D races went to Scottish raider Stewart Whyte (Escort Cosworth) who set a class B lap record on day one.

Andrew Morrison (MG ZR) and Tony Caig (Ford Focus) followed him home in both races.

Hartlepool's Darren Flounders (Fiesta XR2) was in flying form and won class D on Saturday but retired three laps from the end on Sunday.

THE lights have gone green in the search for a new star of the track.

Teesside Autodrome in South Bank has launched its own scholarship programme, offering a full season of sports saloon car racing to the winner.

At stake will be a race-prepared VW Polo, together with race suit, gloves, boots and helmet, tyres and consumables, trailer - and entry to the series of the winner's choice, mostly likely the VW Cup. …
