Penn Mightier Than Batman 10-6-17

Veteran circuit and slotstox racer Jon Penn #306 drove masterfully all day on Saturday June 10th to win the Ipswich Open on one of the longest tracks in the Parmastox world, at the Anglian Racewall Club. After progressing comfortably through a series of heats and his semi-final, Jon's biggest challenge came in the Grand Final from this year's multi-winner Robin "Batman" Bater #64. Going into the last 2 races Robin was ahead, but Jon drove superbly to win them both and take the title by just 2 points, with reigning British Champion Mark West #152 a long way back in 3rd. Jon attributed his victory to a switch from cider to lager for his day's sustenance…. probably. Local racer "Havoc" #465 drove well all day too and while narrowly missing out on the semis, did win the Rob's Repairs "Top Trier" Trophy.
