The last pairs meeting of the season saw 6 duos attend Ipswich for Unlimited Best Buds. Northern Irish twosome 515 Joshua and 911 Cole made their first appearances since May's British Championship, while Scotsman 480 Ryan returned after having not competed since 2016's Metal Mania, which was nearly 18 months ago! The Suffolk circuit provided some good battles and hits across the evening, especially in the FOUR stoxkarts Allcomers!
The only returning driver from last year's champions was 66 Colin, who raced alongside 220 Nova and the Team Bandicoot pairing of 474 Miniman and 669 DarkMetalTim.
The sextet of twosomes were as follows:
WEST COUNTRY WRECKERS
COLIN & COLE
Although nobody realised at the time (myself included) the winners were decided after the final. However, they were pushed pretty close...
Top 6 scored in heats and final. Allcomers were non-points. 5 points went to the winning pair in the DD.

For possibly the first time ever in LFS Bangers history, all three Best Buds meetings were won by the same pairing: PiranMoto's Jam and Michal. They repeated their tactics from the previous Best Buds meetings where both recorded a points finish; this time, it was in 5 of the 7 races with Jam missing out on the points in Heat 3 and Michal not scoring in the final; rather surprisingly, they only won one of these races, that being the current European champion in Heat 2. They also picked up an Allcomers each. It was young Ulsterman Cole who largely carried Colin through to second place, with his 30 points the highest individual score on the night. 911 picked up a heat, final and Allcomers in a very impressive performance. Ryan and Joshua claimed one and two heats respectively but didn't really score anywhere else to end up third, Cap won a heat for Riot Squad who finished a single point behind the Hoods in fourth and Team Klepdeksel won an Allcomers but despite strong starts didn't capitalise in the points races. Having already given up well into the meeting, Splat claimed a compensatory DD win for the West Country Wreckers.
So, without further ado:
CONGRATULATIONS TO PIRANMOTO - WINNERS OF 2017 UNLIMITED BEST BUDS!
The tenth and third complete season under the running of Jon#606.
