Rhys-Tom fought off the line with a great start to regain first position, during the heat, Rhys-Tom found himself fighting for first position, again in a close battle. Unfortunately, Rhys-Tom lost out in the close battle for first place but managed to secure second place comfortably ahead of third place.

Rhys-Tom's final verdict for the day was that:
''It was an overall good day for me, but it would have been so much nicer to go home with first position in the final. it was a close battle between myself  and the driver in first place, so it was unfortunate that I missed out on a potential win here today. Most Importantly I have enjoyed the weekend here in Llandow and to be a part of the NKC ''.
