We were treated to some impressive driving in the Senior heats, being so early in the Championship all drivers are keen to have the best possible start and carry that from form forward, one driver a little too keen was Jake Taplin.
While fighting against race leader Jack Adams Jake ‘Went for the gap’ the problem being the general lack of one, contact and an ABC was the result and soon 1st place Jack and 2nd placed Jake found themselves in 5th and 6th with just 1 lap to go.
Oliver Zimmerman had ringside seats and collected a surprise victory with the always present Adam Harding 2nd and Stef Christo-foo-foo 3rd.
Jake did bounce back and record a race win in heat 2.
We were again treated to the best version of Lee Chapman as he fought tooth and nail against IaroslavKovalev, Iaroslav did hang on to collect maximum points leaving Lee a few inched behind in 2nd position.
Oliver Flashman was the driver able to topple “Mr Defensive” Iaroslav in heat 2 as Oliver recorded the win with Iaroslav2nd, Lee Chapman was again in the middle of all the action, 3rd across the line and a guaranteed A Final position.
Our B Final winner was Jack Adams, he had hoped to secure a place straight into the A Final, but what can he do from the back of the grid?
Iaroslav kept his cool and his position as leader of the pack, all eyes were on the battle for 2nd as Adam Harding held onto it like it was his favourite granny!
Positions were swapping every lap from 3rd place back as Oliver Zimmerman, Oliver Flashman, Lee Chapman and Harry Nottage all at some point tried to claim it as their own. We very soon had a 5 kart train,Iaroslav’s defensive position saw the closing stages of the race become very entertaining….and clean! This was a surprise.
Iaroslav crossed the line to collect a great race win ahead of Adam Harding, that’s some good points for the championship. Harry Nottage’s last few laps were awesome as he filled the final podium position

More tightly packed, tough racing from our cadets. “Bootleggin” Beau Sullivan was the first to leave an impression as he marched his was to the days first win, it wasn’t too easy as Joshua Pattrick finished 2nd, just a tenth behind after staring from the back of the field. Never too far from the front of the pack is Kye Kinch, he completed the podium in the first heat.
Kye wasn’t too pleased with 3rd, so swapped it for 1st in heat 2.
A dominate victory for Kye as he left 2nd place Beau in the shadows, winning by nearly 5 seconds. Miguel Onyekweli (Now there’s a mouthful of a name) was the surprise package in heat 2, 3rd place across the line and a haul of points to go with it.
Just one final for the Cadets.
Beau starts from pole position and leads from lights to flag! An unstoppable Beau in the final, this time he beats Kye across the line by 5 seconds as he wins the week overall. Kye will still be smiling, 2nd place and the points that go with it will still see his name heading the overall championship table and with Champion Jack Williamson of gallivanting Beau holds 2nd in the table.
The surprise of the final is again Miguel, 3rd place in the final is an awesome result for a driver with his lack of experience. Keep it up
