Starting the race from Pole position Tom momentarily dropped a place, however he regained the lead at Turn 4 where he stayed for the remainder of the race, crossing the line 2.084 seconds ahead of Taylor Mackenzie in second place. Smashing the lap record at the Norfolk circuit not once, but twice during the race Tom holds the new record of 1:49.516.
