Bligh Julius roared to victory with his co-driver Charlie Hatfield in round eight of the 2015 RYA P750 British Championship at Southsea yesterday.

James Tapp, driving Microlink Ahmad Tea, had taken round seven on Saturday but he could not make it a glorious double.

He crashed out in the final yesterday, allowing the opportunity for Julius, who drives Multispark Racing Products, to grab the victory after the restart.

World champion Sean Fisher showed he is regaining top form, driving Team BobKat – Moku Racing with Damion Bowen.

He took a deserved second place overall in a hull built in his home country – South Africa.

The ThunderCats put on a great spectacle in Southsea and enjoyed excellent weather conditions – especially on Saturday, ensuring crowds of spectactors flocked to the beach.
