Kenato Le bounced back from a disappointing race one to win the second race of the weekend at Snetterton.

The Elite Motorsport driver faced a last lap challenge from Liam McNeilly but had enough of a gap at the front to finish0.473s ahead despite McNeilly putting in the fastest lap of the race.

Pole sitter Maurice Henry immedietly came under attack from Le off the line. Will Macintyre and Harri Reynolds made it a four way fight at the front of the order.

Henry, Macintyre, and McNeilly all took turns at the front of the order, but it was Le leading in the closing stages of the race. Macintyre was right on Le’s tail, but a mistake for Macintyre on the penultimate lap sent him plummeting down the order.

Le had a lead of a few seconds at the start of the final lap, with McNeilly inheriting second. McNeilly put in the fastest lap of the race but it wasn’t enough to threaten Le.

Behind them, a last lap dash resulted in Sonny Smith completing the podium.

Smith, who was disqualified from race one for an incident with Le, had started sixth and held the position in the early stages of the race. He briefly bell backwards between Josh Rowledge and Joe Warhurst, but was able to recover in the final laps to sweep past both drivers and snatch second.

Henry, who had fallen behind Smith, followed the R Racing driver through to finish fourth, relegating Warhurst and Rowledge to fifth and sixth respectively. Aqil Alibhai took seventh, ahead of Harri Reynolds and McKenzie Douglas.

A recovering Will Macintyre completed the top 10.
