ECKC: Mini-Max victory for Alex Murphy
The top three in the Rotax Mini-Max category sure put on a great show for the fans in attendance at Goodwood.
American Matthew Thomas (PSL Karting/CRG) took the lead early thanks to his pole-position starting spot. Tucking in behind him, Austin Riley (Intrepid North America/Praga) was all over the rear bumper of Thomas, with Alex Murphy (PSL Karting/CRG) in tow as well. The trio quickly pulled away, while the remainder of the field settled into position.
Riley took the lead on lap two with a nifty pass on Thomas, bringing Murphy with him. Then nearing the halfway mark, Murphy took his turn in the lead, this time bringing Thomas with him. The three raced nose to tail for the remainder of the race, and much like the Junior race, the three seemed so equally matched, that nobody could make a move. At the line, Murphy scored the win, ahead of Thomas and Riley.
