Here we go again, Sunday morning and it’s nearly 8degrees! Boiling! Most people at 7:55am on a Sunday morning would be asleep then spend the day relaxing, in such heat maybe spend the day in the garden, sunbathing. Not my style, karts out, grids ready and Peter Sims….. Late, Normal service has resumed!
Let’s start with the Seniors for a change, a fresh faced Harry Charalalalalambous gets us started with the first pole position of the season.
Next week we are going to deflate Jack Goldsmith’s tyres! We need to do something to stop him from winning “The Old Man” turned back the years, like he does each week and started this season as he finished last, #Winning.
Jack didn’t have too much on an easy ride as Jack Adams made yet another appearance at the head of the field, I am still surprised to see Jack at the nippy head of the results, perhaps I should get used to it now. After Jack and Jack came Jake, something with the letter J as Jake Tappers completed the podium, good start to the season for these three.
Georgie Anker found his compass and arrived at Brentwood this week, his reward? A win, someone did manage to beat Jack across the line, Jack didn’t help himself with two ABC’s in this race to slow him down after a heavy handed tussle with pole position holder Harry Charalalalalambous. Jack held on to finish 2nd, Dorothy was next, Dylan “Dot” Cotton, last seasons most improved driver filled 3rd position.
Its dry and sunny, means only one thing, Adam Harding is on form, he collects pole position.
“It’s goodnight from me, and its goodnight from him” Bye Bye! Harry Fleming and Chris Carleton filled 1st and 2nd in this race as they checked out and disappeared, behind them was the battle from 3rd! handbags from several drivers resulted in a messy race and the eventual escape artist was Mason Murray as he filled the valuable 3rd position.
Race two was a little cleaner as Adam Harding, who was driving “The donkey kart” according to the general consensus of the viewing area, controlled the race and held onto the lead and won! Prize Donkey indeed! A great race from Adam left Iaroslav Kovalev to collect 2nd with Mr consistent Mason Murray 3rd, again.
Cadet Champion, now Senior driver, The Flash secured a place in the A Final after winning the B Final.
Rolling Starts are back!! Clearly we are a little rusty……
This isn’t going well, finally we are underway!
Jack Adams performs his ‘seen many times before’ party trick by spinning on lap 1, this time he is lucky enough to have a second shot.
Go! Go! Go!
Jack Goldsmith keeps his position with 2nd placed Harry Fleming having to contend with Georgie, Jack Adams (Who didn’t spin this time) and Iaroslav Kovalev.
Mason Murray this time doesn’t have the pace, he’s 10th. Georgie’s done it, he’s passed Harry Fleming and holds 2nd place. Iaroslav Kovalev is the next one past Harry to fill 3rd.
It’s Jacks day again as Goldsmith crosses the line to collect the spoils, Georgie keeps his 2nd place ahead of Iaroslav Kovalev who completes the podium.

Driver Of The Day
Kye Kinch got the ball rolling with pole position.
Race 1 saw cheeky ‘Bootlegging’ Beau take the lead from Kye with a great outside line overtaking move at Swimming Pool Bend before darting off into the sunset to start his season in the best possible way.
Kye kept the predators at bay and held onto his 2nd place like it was his favourite granny. Jack “In The Hat” Williamson completed the podium with a good 3rd place.
Super Dooper Beau made it 2 out of 2 with yet another victory, Jack Wiliamson went one better with a 2nd place as Kye also scored a double podium as he filled 3rd.
Harley Carleton secured pole position, he’s back!
Harley converted pole position into a race win with a dominate display in race 1 leaving championship favourite Henry George to cross the line 2nd. Most improved driver Joshua Pattrick kept Henry honest finishing 3rd.
Harley “did a Beau” and scored another win in race 2, Joshua gave Henry a slap as he this time around took 2nd leaving Henry 3rd.
Oliver “Has The Potential” Shelton found his way to the A Final via a win in the B Final.
Harley kept his nose clean and lead from the start leaving 2nd place Beau with a challenge. Joshua Pattrick’s start wasn’t a good, changing 3rd to 6th.
Kye Kinch was the man on the move as he passed Joshua and Jack on his way to an eventual 2nd place.
Harley was back with a vengeance as he secured a hat-trick of wins. Kye saved his best till last as he crossed the line 2nd with Beau collecting the final podium position.
