The 2016 Microlink ThunderCat Championship is going down to the wire, Gary Tolman and Scott Brown in Multispark Racing 61 are keeping Rob Davies and Darren Phillips in Microlink-Ahmad Tea honest to the last.
Competing under a warm October sun in Catalan Bay, GibraltarTolman and Brown won Round 12 by the narrowest of margins, a DNS in heat 5 cost the Welsh team and ultimately the Round.
Rookie sensations Josh Broadbent and Seb Watts took their first ever podium, third.
Student Loan is getting better every race and will surely be a Championship contender in 2017.
The final 2 rounds will be held at Watergate Bay, Cornwall on November 19th and 20th.
The air and sea will be cold but the final action of the season is bound to be hot, hot, hot.
