MOTOR SPORT: Victory in all his races, including crossing the line first in the final was not enough to earn Aaron Alexander victory in round three of the SKS Cadet 200 Pro Extreme Championship at Shenington.
The King Edward VII pupil claimed pole position for heat 1 and went on to win all three of his heats comfortably, although the third race saw Chance Bennett push him to the limits of the Oxfordshire track.
In Sunday’s final, Alexander led for most of a close race but crossed the line level with Bennett to share the same time at the chequered flag.
When the drivers pulled up to park, they did not know who had won with a circuit official saying the pair crossed the line at the same split second. The final was eventually awarded to Bennett, by virtue of him having recorded the fastest lap in the final, by just a 10th of a second.
Alexander’s father Adam queried the result, having seen his son win all three of the qualifying heats but the result stood with Alexander recording a second-place finish.
He is in action again this weekend at Stretton Circuit in Leicestershire in the SCSS Cadet 200 Pro Extreme championship.
