With a few weeks to go till the end of the spring racing season for the Championship at Brentwood Karting here is how things are looking.
With such an impressive reputation of creating successful drivers we like to keep a close eye on the current crop at The Brentwood Karting Race League.
Even last week Brentwood Karting’s Callum Hawkins-Row made his Britcar debut at Silverstone in the impressive Ginetta G55, the Silverstone University Technical College student impressed too getting to grips with the powerful car with ease.
Also getting the best out of the Ginetta G55 is Ben Green who recorded his debut SuperCup win at Donington Park last week.
Another Brentwood winner now in cars is Danny Harrison, Brands Hatch also saw a debut win for Danny in Round one of the Fiesta Championship, then we have Ryan Gillespie who this season is collecting podiums in every round of the Clio 182 championship, it’s no wonder Arden’s Young Racing Driver Academy seem to be signing more and more Brentwood talent and professional World Endurance Championship teams like JOTA Sport are keen to lend a hand to the Brentwood Karting Race League.
Brentwood Karting Race League Senior Championship:
We again see the name Jack Goldsmith leading the Brentwood Karting Senior Championship, The 18yr old is has just 2 weeks left till he hangs up his helmet for the Brentwood Championship at least, keen to go out on a high Jack leads the championship by 19 points, it’s not been an easy ride for Jack as some of the Brentwood young guns have spent this season getting closer and closer to his prestigious level, even surpassing it at times. One of the massively improved drivers is currently holding 2nd in the championship, Jake Taplin, on the last Brentwood report Jake had achieve his first ever overall race meeting victory to his name, Jake now has three and has been making dents into Jack’s championship lead.
The excitement doesn’t stop there as 3rd and 4th in the championship are some of the Seniors League’s newest drivers and both are Brentwood Karting Cadet Champions who have taken the step up to the Senior Championship. Current Cadet Champion Oliver Flashman is currently holding 3rd and is already off the mark with a race meeting win. 4th place is former Cadet Champion Adam Harding, Adam also won the Senior Championship on his very first attempt and finished runner up to Jack Goldsmith last season, with just 2 weeks left what can Adam achieve this season. Looking further down the championship order we still see a lot of talent. Oliver Zimmerman is one such name who in recent weeks has improved greatly and started making an impact on the front of the field as has Dylan Cotton who is another driver now scoring podium finishes on a frequent basis.
The end of the season sure does look to be exciting; you can keep an eye on the final weeks at Brentwood Karting website.
Brentwood Karting Race League Cadet Championship:
With such a huge reputation of producing massively successful drivers such as Ivan Lomilev and Reggie Duhy to name a few, this season looks no different with 5 or 6 drivers really impressing, be sure, you will see these names in motorsport future.
Heading this super competitive championship we see the name Beau Sullivan, Brentwood Karting’s most improved driver from last season is certainly living up to his award. Beau has been fantastic this season scoring highly each week and dominating several weeks of the season leaving his rivals scratching their heads. With just two weeks to go Beau scored his worse race meeting putting the championship right back into contention to others, once such driver keen to take advantage of any mishap from Beau is Jack Williamson, Jack is currently holding 2nd in the table and now just 6 points off the lead the final two weeks will be awesome.
Jack has really found his feet this season and has won several race meetings to ensure he is Beau’s closest rival in the championship. 3rd in the championship we see Kye Kinch, he still also in contention for the overall title, he’s just 6 points behind 2nd placed Jack. Kye is another driver who is frequently winning races and overall meetings. All three of these names have been the cream of the crop this season winning the majority of the race meetings. There is more talent away from the podium positions, Harry Nottage is one such driver, Harry was runner up in Oliver Flashman’s Championship win, he even beat the top three drivers from this season last season on his way to the runners up spot so he is certainty a driver to watch as he progresses into the Senior Championship next season. Joshua Pattrick and Oliver Shelton are two other drivers absolutely worth a word both have had yet another great season, keep an eye out for these names in the future.
