Fireball World Championship - Day 2 Edwards and Townend take lead

Fireball World Championship – Day 2 Edwards and Townend take lead

DJ Edwards and Vyv Townend bounced into the lead of the Gul Fireball World Championship after a couple of second place finishes on Monday at Pwllheli, Wales.

Race winners came from further down the leaderboard. Derian and Andy Scott (14th) won the first race of the day (race 3) with Matt Burge and Richard Wagstaff taking third behind Edwards and Townsend.

We have to look even further back for the winners of the second race. Back to 27th, where Tom Gillard and Richard Anderton lurk, burdened with a BFD from race 1. The National Champions took race 4 ahead of Edwards and Townsend with third Christian Birrell and Sam Brearey.

Overall Edwards and Townsend lead by two points from Birrell and Brearey, with Ian Dobson and Ben Ainsworth a further four points back in third. Fourth are Matt Burge and Richard Wagstaff, then Vince Horey and Robert Gardner in fifth.
