Paul Wardell North Gloucester Minitwins

After an emphatic double victory at Anglesey over the weekend, Paul Wardell has his hands of the North Gloucester Minitwins title with two rounds still to come at Pembrey and Thruxton.

Following a recommendation from last year’s champion Alan Russell, Paul switched to the ContiRaceAttack Comp before the start of the season and kicked off the opening round of the season with a double win at Brands hatch Indy circuit.

The next round at Oulton Park saw Paul claim another two wins and set a new class lap record around the Cheshire circuit.

Wardell’s winning streak ended at Donington Park when he lost out to close rival Jake Detloff in the opening race, but he still found his way on to the top step later that day and also in the opener at Cadwell.

Despite missing out on the podium during the club’s annual visit to Castle Combe, Paul remained focused on the job at hand by putting the SV650 on pole for the opener at Anglesey.

Race One saw him get a great start, beating Alan Stevens into 2nd place by a margin of more than 11 seconds after 6 laps.

Sunday’s race was a far closer affair as Stevens and Wardell diced for the lead, before Paul finally got the better of his rival to win by just 0.126s and clinch the MPH Moto Minitwin title.

Congratulations to Paul and the Bee Lighting race team – they’ll be back in action next month at Pembrey in South Wales.
