LKRC Fulbeck Round 5 Race Report

Sunday 26th June 2016

Reported by Alex Rouse & Carol McLean

With the return of the Super1 round and anticipating over a 150 competitors in the next couple weeks the weekend allowed the opportunity for the LKRC team to extend more of a personal touch to the day and more “time in the seat” for the drivers with up to 17 laps in the finals. LKRC-Fulbeck welcomed the annual return of RAF Inter-service Karting Championship with a forty strong kart endurance race on the Saturday evening, albeit a little water-logged. The Sunday awarded us an interesting day of racing and the Clerk of course John Goldthorpe declared an open meeting, as the clouds hung around after the previous days down pours. It rained during a couple of races but no enough to deter the competitors and their great performances. There was no serious accidents during the day.

IAME Cadets

Heat 1 Race 1

Slight change to the usual running order with IAMEs up first to grid. First kart of the day with Ash Turner (21) behind the wheel lined up to as pole-sitter. On P2, S8Racing’s driver Jacob Heap (12); who is currently ranking in third place in the championships and last of the front runners came Archie Adkins (37) on P3. A mental and physical challenge lay ahead with the rain joining in lap 3, and no pit stops, the eleven drivers had to be super cautious. We had a number of drivers making mistakes due to the weather conditions. Jacob Heap (12) spun on the exit of the final corner nearly collecting another driver, but the weather remained suitable enough not to red flag the session. AJ Arnold (93) drove like a genius to collect the finish in first place with clear lead of 7.338 seconds ahead of Mark Baines Motorsport (MBM) driver Harvey Riby (71) and the championship leader. 8.263 seconds behind Riby, Max Barrow (15) came home in third place. Arnold’s race finishing time was 9:39.727 minutes and he also took the fastest lap of the race posting a time of 59.964 seconds.

Heat 2 Race 8

This race brought forth a front row line up of P1 – Max Barrow (15), P2 – Danyal Hussain (96) from S8Racing and P3 – Harvey Riby (71) completing the trio. This race was a close one as the battle for the lead between Riby, AJ Arnold (93) and Hussain. Riby not happy to settle for anything other than the top step, went on to take the heat win 0.834 seconds ahead of Arnold who was having a great scrap for second place with Hussain. During the race Hussain did take Arnold for second but Arnold managed to grab it back and kept it all the way to the finish. Hussain crossed the line and was 0.993 seconds from P2. Riby’s race finishing time was 9:03.285 minutes. Danyal Hussain claimed the fastest lap of the race posting a time of 53.535 seconds.

Heat 3 Race 13

Harvey Riby (71) lined up for P1. On P2 in both the championship and this grid was Archie Adkins (37) with Danyal Hussain (96) on P3. With the final chance for this class to establish grid positions for the final, we were treated to a fantastic race for the victory with the top three finishers crossing the line under 0.5 seconds. From the off Riby (71) received a hard time by hot challenger Hussain (96) for the race lead. Hussain did eventually make it past Riby but not for long. Riby made the move down the inside of turn one to regain the lead from Hussain. Hussain then gets passed by Max Barrow (15) after having overtaken Heap (12). Barrow closed in on Riby and is now in contention for the win. Riby won’t settle for anything less than P1 holding off Barrow (15) to take a wonderful and very close victory of 0.323 seconds. Danyal Hussain finished in third place 0.449 seconds behind Riby. Riby’s race finishing time was 8:57.839 minutes and also setting the fastest lap of the race a time of 53.076 seconds.

FINAL Race 19

Now after all the excitement from the heats, it would appear these cadets had left a little something in reserve for the this 15 lap decision maker with only two trophies up for grabs. On the well earned top spots, P1 Harvey Riby (71), P2 for Max Barrow (15) with Danyal Hussain (96) and AJ Arnold (93) on P3 and P4. Hussain (96) took Barrow (15) for the lead of the race, but that was short lived as Arnold (93) nosed his way through for first place from Hussain. With only 0.635 seconds lead Arnold crossed the line in first place. Max Barrow came home to collect second place. Harvey Riby (71) who had an accident during the race, climbed is way through the field to finish in a respectable third place and was 0.726 seconds behind Arnold. Riby was given the LKRC driver of the day. Arnold’s race completion time was 13:34.780 minutes. Hussain dropped to sixth and finished there, but on lap 3 posted the fastest lap of the race setting a time of 53.205 seconds. Benjamin Doughty (28) was awarded Novice of the Day. No change on the leadership table with Harvey Riby 379 points, second place is Archie Adkins with 332 points and Jacob Heap on the third step with 309 points.

Reporters – Alex Rouse & Carol McLean Photos – TLP-Photography

Lincolnshire Kart Racing Club hosted it’s largest ever meeting with nearly 250 karts over the whole weekend. With both an NKF and 210 Villiers Challenge rounds plus SuperOne drivers testing prior to their round in July, the meeting was basically rammed!!!

Awnings and trailers stretched out past the hay bales, around the access road and out beyond the control tower with everyone from Fusion Motorsport, Coles Racing, Thomas Day Racing, S8 Racing to lad ’n’ dads working out the back of their cars. Oh and not forgetting Channel 4 and Finestripe Productions film crews just to add a little spice to the weekend’s events.

A minutes silence was held for the sad and sudden passing on Friday 20 May our friend and fellow driver David Hoyle. Our prayers and deepest sympathy go out to his lovely wife Debbie, mother Joyce, sister Laura, brother Alan, daughter Janine and rest of the family from all at LKRC & FESS. Woodthorpe Kart Club, will be holding a DAVID HOYLE MEMORIAL MEETING on 30/31st July. With the support of Family and friends, all profits will be donated to Ward 7A at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. Having raced at Woodthorpe for many years Dave was a regular in the gearbox classes. A special trophy will be awarded to the Driver of the Day.

The meeting started off with an earlier drivers briefing at 8.45am. Clerks of the course Martin Bean and John Goldthorpe warned all drivers about the driving behaviour following on from Saturday practice day with 15 overtakes under yellow flag conditions! The days meeting was declared dry and with 9 classes and 42 races meant a very tight schedule.

With one serious incident in Junior X30 class, driving standard issues, penalties and exclusions the racing ran on into the evening with daylight just holding on until the last kart left the circuit.

Lincolnshire Kart Racing Club Winter Series

bayfordThe first meeting of 2014 was met with a mixture of weather conditions! Saturday dry with no wind, and Sunday race day the complete opposite; appalling rain and hale, resulting in reduced heats and final laps to ensure the full meeting was completed. Although the weather on Sunday was so bad, the racing displayed a remarkable contrast.

Cadet / IAME: A competent and impressive display from Josh Rattican, winning all three heats and the final, with the fastest lap of the day and completing the full set by winning the driver of the day, for his mature and influential driving. 1st Josh Rattican, 2nd Van Knapton, 3rd Abbi Pulling

Junior Max: A much reduced grid this month, however the quality was excellent and close over the heats, with Philip Craven wining the final and capturing the fasted lap award. 1st Philip Craven, 2nd Byron Kittle, 3rd Thomas Kittle

Senior Max: An impressive return to kart racing for Dave Tucker, who finished 2nd in heat 1 with the fastest lap; unfortunately this could not be sustained in the final with a 5th place result. There was a mixed day for regular driver Harry Winkfield who continues to impress with his mature attitude and racing. Aaron Drew drove exceptionally well all day winning a very close final. 1st Aaron Drew, 2nd Craig Land, 3rd Karl Brown

Gearbox 125 ICC & 250 Open: The first meeting of the day saw a return from many regulars in extremely difficult conditions for these powerful karts on a very wet track, and a first outing for Team 5/30 driver David Hoyle, winning the novice driver award. Chad Shiner winning the 125 final and fastest lap. Mixed fortunes for Max Snell on his new chassis, however a fantastic duel in the final between Max and Paul Gutteridge for the full race distance with Paul holding a determined Max behind him to win a great race. Jason Tucker captured the fastest lap award in the final. 1st Paul Gutteridge, 2nd Max Snell, 3rd Jason Tucker
