Although the points were shared in 11 of the 18 races, A&T took the heat wins in the other seven races, to run out comfortable 99-80 winners. For A&T John White was in superb form, unbeaten by an opponent, just dropping one point through a starting infringement penalty.Excellent support came from Duncan Whalley, beaten only twice in six races, and high scores from Norman, Frank White and Steve Harris. Kayden Davidson impressed for Fife, who lost only to John White on three occasions.
