Morgan Jernfast easily won the fifth round of the 2018 UIM F4 World Championship here in Mâcon this afternoon and charged into the lead of the championship.
His main championship rival, Tuukka Lehtonen, had a bizarre accident after the qualifying session, he hit the pontoon and severely damaged his boat and it was not able to be repaired for the race.
Latvia’s Nikita Lijcs took the runners up slot and in the process elevated himself to second in the World Championship.
After finishing third, France’s Rudy Revert was omitted from the results after failing a technical inspection after the race, which gave Lithuania’s Paulius Stainys the final spot on the podium.
Britain’s Ben Jelf finished third on the water but was docked a lap for hitting a turn mark, his one lap penalty put him into seventh position.
Tomorrow will be the 6th and deciding round in the championship.
