Shenington Kart Racing club report – 18 June 2017

On a sweltering hot day the 150 competitors had plenty of track time for Round 6 of the club championship.  Many were looking forward to the big Kart SuperPrix in July with SP plates on offer and £3000 of tool vouchers shared for the top spots. 

The largest class again was Honda Cadet with over 30 competitors, and it was also one of the best with multiple swaps in the lead battle.  Daniel Guinchard led Kan Berta and Daryl Taylor but Connor Clifford jumped them all to lead.  Berta  and Guinchard were both put back a few places but clawed back into contention as Berta looked like he might claim the win, leading on the last lap.  But a last corner sort out had a delighted Clifford win by 0.07s over Guinchard, Berta and Daniel Parrans-Smith.  Daryl Taylor, also a one time leader, had to settle for sixth.  Banbury novice Leo Robinson came home in 20th

In the other IAME Cadet class for the two stroke engines, Ella Stevens and Bradley Beavers broke away.  In the fight for third Joe Sheppy leapfrogged Max Speed to follow Robbie Stableford.  Beavers had got himself into the lead but as he defended the next three closed up for a five kart fight with Stableford emerging from the last corner to win over Sheppy, Beavers and Stevens.

James Pashley was his usual competitive self in Junior TKM after successful rounds of the national championship, but soon had to give up the lead to Zak Taylor.  The pair battled hard all race, swapping the lead but with Taylor in front with two laps to go he was vigorously defending despite all Pashley’s efforts to pass.  Dominic Kilminster was a lonely third, with Joe Taylor next but excluded for being underweight.  That left Dan McKeown n fourth over Theo Edgerton.

Alessandro Ceronetti cantered to a near 3 second victory over Tom Nippers and Caden McQueen in the Junior X30 class.  Joshua Martin led off the 24 strong pack as Leonardo Panayiotou and Adam Jones collided at Café corner, Panayiotou later excluded for abusive behaviour as well as Ben Ward.  Ceronetti had a run on Martin into the Stratford hairpin and led the rest of the race, gradually extending his advantage as Martin slumped to sixth.  Callum Driscoll was the first to put him back but he retired with four laps to go leaving Nippers a lonely second.  The battle for third resolved in McQueen’s favour over Jonathan Robertson. 

Josh Sherriff was quickly past Nathan Wells in TKM Extreme and race long the small gap between them waxed and waned, but Sherriff held on for the win.  Gary Fowler cruised into third but could make no inroads on the leaders, and behind him Sam Johns and Chris Goffin.  Sam Jackson and Mitchell Ball collided on the penultimate lap.  

Samuel Baker, Graham Stewart and Suk Sandher vied for the TKM Clubman lead with the current champion and SP plate holder Andre Marot in fourth.  Stewart grabbed the lead until Sandher sliced through both, then Stewart was called in for a broken rear bumper.  George Robinson was trying out a new concept with a Rotax engine in this economy class, and he passed Marot but will not count for prizes so Marot was effectively third.  Neil Layton, father of the local Banbury ace William Layton, has started racing as a novice and he came a very creditable seventh.

For the gearbox classes Lee Ward led off Lucas Vaus and Malcolm Smith in the 125cc KZ UK class.  After some tyre rubbing attempts Vaus got through for the win and Anderson Chilcott passed Smith and closed down on the leaders, only losing some time passing a back marker.  In the big 250cc class Aaron Powell put in a classy win despite all Jack Love’s attempts to reach him after passing several other karts.  Love had endured difficult heats with mechanical problems and did well to recover.

Shenington Kart Racing Report – April 16th 2017

Great weather and good grids blessed Shenington’s club championship round 5.  The Cadets were having to get used to fitting the drop down front fairing at the club for the first time, although many had already used them in Super One or other clubs.  The first Honda heat was a bit of a nightmare with three red flags but the timetable recovered and everyone was fine.  There was a full grid of Honda Cadets, the biggest class and Archie Brown and Connor Clifford broke clear of a fierce third place battle and remained in these position to the chequer.  Aston Millar held third most of the race but was eased back to ninth at the last corner where Dale Whittaker and Roman Bilinski tangled, both dropping down the order.  So Lorenzo Kordal took full advantage to claim third ahead of Kean Berta and Charlie Vaughan.

Local driver James Pashley scored a magnificent victory in a near full grid of Junior TKM with long trains the order of the day.  Pashley started from fifth whilst Joe Taylor led the pack away, then Pashley nipped past Spencer Stevenson on the first lap before picking off Dominic Kilminster, then Zak Taylor and slicing inside Taylor at Café Corner.  He was now leading a seven kart train, nose to tail.  Twice Taylor fought back to the lead and twice Pashley recovered the place and held on to win as Joe Taylor came under pressure from Zak Taylor on the last lap.  Kearney Connor stormed up from a start of 14th to finish fourth.

In the new MiniX class novice Jude Fernihough prevailed after a day long battle with Jack Salmon who fell to fourth at the end.  The Junior X30 was another with a near full grid of 26 karts, and Sean Butcher and Rufus Hunt were in command,  Hunt leading much of the race and setting a new lap record.  Butcher nipped through for the win though.  Once Alessandro Ceronetti broke clear of his fight with Caden McQueen he became a lonely third, McQueen falling to seventh with Leonardo Panayioutou up ten places to fourth.  In the 2-stroke IAME Cadet once Joe Sheppy and Bradley Beavers broke clear at the front it became a waiting game until the end as they held station.  At the last corner on the penultimate lap Beavers sliced into the lead and held off Sheppy to the flag.  Maximus Hall had a gap in front to Beavers and behind but was gradually reeled in by Alfie Baxter-Davies and Robbie Stapleford, both passing and Max Speed a more distant sixth.

Josh Sherriff, Sam Fowler, William Lakin and Harry Moore pushed each other away from the pack in TKM Extreme but Lakin fell back, closing up once more at the end.  National champion Moore took Sherriff mid race then pipped Fowler for the win by the tiny margin of 0.05s, Sherriff a similar distance back in third.  For the economy TKM Clubman class Shenington local driver André Marot took little time in overtaking leader Ayrton Wynell-Mayow and gradually eased out a small cushion for the win.  David Medlock fell behind Christian Chater by the end after Oliver Buskell came to a halt out of fourth.  In the KZ UK 125cc geared class Tom Longfield made the best start but Dan Kelly soon took him and was unchallenged for the win.  The expected fight between O Plated Kelly and E Plated Scott Allen failed to materialise when Allen’s clutch failed at the start.  Longfield held onto a well deserved second well clear of Lee Ward whilst Alice Powell was having her first race at the track for six years and came in fifth.  Edgehill’s Ross Allen won the very small 250 National class.

Shenington Kart Racing Report – April 16th 2017

For the fourth round of the season, the overall entry was a little down on normal, perhaps due to the Easter holidays but the weather stayed dry except for the first Honda Cadet final. A drizzle of rain prompted all the karts to be fitted with wet weather tyres, allowing Joshua McLean to show off his skills on the damp track. Throwing off a challenge from Luke Watts he pulled out almost five seconds by the chequer. There was a good battle for third, Kean Berta falling from third to sixth, whilst Alex Mollov also succumbed to Lorenzo Kordal and Daryl Taylor. In the closing stages Taylor claimed the spot.

In the IAME Cadet class the lead battle was much more intense. Maximus Hall, Joe Sheppy and Luke Watts traded the lead, at times two and three abreast. Watts retrieved the lead over Hall on the penultimate lap and held on until the flag, but was then penalised a lap for contravening flag signals, gifting the win to Hall with Sheppy, Alfie Baxter-Davies, Robbie Stapleford and Max Speed all close behind.

Junior TKM was one of the biggest grids and had the Mini Max – won by Michael Salmon, and Mini X30 – won by Jack Salmon tagging on behind. In the Junior TKM Abbi Pulling pounced on Zak Oates at the Stratford hairpin whilst Joe Taylor got Connor Kearney at Café. Both pairs pulled away but separated by five seconds without any further place changes. Zak Taylor made progress up to fifth but Dan McKeown retrieved the spot.

Junior X30 is another increasingly popular class with Banbury’s William Layton in the thick of the lead battle in an eight kart train. Variously Layton, Joshua Martin, Louie Short, Caden McQueen and Jonathan Robertson were all vying for the win. In the end Short managed to break away from the others for a superb win, McQueen second whilst Layton had to settle for fourth.

Ross Allen overcame engine problems in the first heat to come from sixth on the grid to win Shenington’s round of the Super 4 250 National championships.  The local ace gained no places off the start as James Hassall led the seventeen-strong pack away. Allen picked off the five karts ahead one each lap at the Stratford hairpin, eventually slicing inside his team mate Hassall for the lead. Hassall and Aaron Powell kept in touch to the flag, the trio blanketed by less than a second, with Paul Lawson a distant fourth. Ron Stamp spun at Café corner and was collected by Jack Love on the first lap.

Despite only having nine runners the TKM Extreme turned out to be a cracking race with plenty overtakes. Ryan Green was soon taken by Sam Johns, then both of them by Josh Sherriff up from grid five. They all exchanged the lead position again throughout the race, joined by Colin Morris but finally Sherriff got in behind Green over the finish, and inherited the win when Green had a 10s penalty applied.

In the economy TKM Clubman class the local villager André Marot swept past Matt Cardwell in the early stages and kept him at bay to the chequer. Suk Sandher held off James Cayzer and Chris Yates for third.

Shenington Kart Racing Report 19 March 2017

The weather was kind to the 130 competitors, rain thankfully staying away for the last round of the Winter Series.  With many of the regular drivers at the British Championships, the Junior TKM, MiniMax and MiniX all raced together.  Dominic Kilminster swept past Will Day for the Junior TKM lead and pulled a good cushion.  Day slipped back to sixth, leaving Charlie Whitehouse and Thomas Massereli trading second.  Massareli retrieved the lead going into the last lap and held on.  Novice driver Jude Fernhough overcame the more experienced Jake Robertson for the MiniX win after erstwhile leader Jack Salmon was flagged in for a missing chain guard.

Being able to see is overrated anyway…

William Layton was quick to lead the Junior X30 final but the Banbury driver was challenged at the half way point.  Zak Bowen spotted an opening at Café corner but couldn’t quite hold the advantage into the Stratford hairpin and fell to third.  He soon re-took second from Ben Ward and was back to challenge Layton again.  They swapped four times, Layton re-taking the lead at Stratford hairpin and holding on for the win.  Ward kept third ahead of Joshua Martin and Jonathan Robertson.  Joe Sheppy fell back from second leaving Max Speed and Bradley Beavers to battle it out for the IAME Cadet win, Speed prevailing.  Alfie Briggs shot into third on the last lap as Aydan Hassan and Daniel Dudfield lost the spot but still finished third and fourth.  Ella Stevens had been fourth but had to settle for sixth by the flag.

Joshua Sherriff leapfrogged James Whitaker in TKM Extreme and helped push Ryan Green and himself clear of the pack.  As the race wound down the tension at the front increased, the pair exchanging the lead several times with Sherriff winning and then Green being excluded.  That promoted local driver William Lakin to third, behind Alex Rees.

In the TKM Clubman economy class category Suk Sandher pulled a huge lead over the rest.  David Medlock was an initial second but fell to fourth behind Oliver Buskell and Chris Yates.  The 210 National, one of the oldest in kart racing, was having a warm up for the season with Tom Whyte heading Dan Bury, whilst Bury’s father Tony spun at the second corner.   He did restart a lap or two down. Neil Hancock nipped past Dan Bury, but Bury managed to retrieve second but only temporarily as he was forced to settle for third.

cadet
Very Little separated the cadets

A very large Honda Cadet entry needed a repechage second chance race to sort out the final positions on the A Final grid.  In that Lucas Ellingham grabbed the lead from James Walker at the first hairpin but Ellingham swiftly regained first.  Oliver Greenall was unable to live with the pace of the front duo and was almost overcome by Connor Clifford and Lorenzo Kordal.  At the front Walker had come back to the front, and despite the pressure took the win.

Dan Kelly was in a class of his own in the KZ UK 125cc gearbox class, pulling ten seconds on Tom Longfield.  The latter managed to hold off a challenge from Lee Ward until Myles Potter crept up on both and split them, Longfield runner-up.  A small 250 National class had James Hassall unchallenged especially when Aaron Powell retired.

Shenington Kart Racing Report 19th February 2017

Amongst an entry of 150 there were as always good grids of Cadets and Junior TKM and X30, but light on Rotax. A grid of Senior OK was managed, and large senior grids in TKM. The weather was good and there were no red flags.

honda
Kean Berta Stormed through from 6th to take the win

 In Honda Cadet a few spinners at the second corner broke up the pack, Charlie Vaughan, Kean Berta and Daniel Powell breaking away after Berta leapfrogged Alistair Cresswell. Berta took the lead at the last hairpin on lap 6 and hung on for the win from Vaughan. Powell fell away in a battle with Alex Molloy, Roman Bilinski and Cresswell, the latter disappearing with a lap or so to go. Powell kept third ahead of Bilinski.

In the 2-stroke IAME Cadets Matthew Rees had the legs of the rest, eking out a three second cushion for the win over Maximus Hall after Bradley Beavers had an incident at the last hairpin on the first lap. He fell to sixteenth, remarkably arrowing back through to third to great acclaim.

Alessandro Ceronetti at the wheel of his Fullerton

 Alessandro Ceronetti pulled well clear of the second place battle in Junior X30 between Joe Fowler, Caden McQueen and Tom Nippers, finishing in that order after a few place swaps. Harry Restall eventually made it past Sean McCormack for sixth. Just behind them ran wide at Café, losing touch but not a place. Ash Kandola was excluded, he had been involved in two incidents.  

 James Pashley led the large Junior TKM pack away for the final but an incident at the first hairpin dropped him to sixth. He sliced back through into contention with a bold move following Joe Taylor past leader Zak Oates then on the next lap briefly took the lead. But he was squeezed out, and fell to sixth, retrieving just one place. But the damage had been done in the incidents resulting in a 10s penalty, whilst Taylor was excluded. Archie Strong leapfrogged into the win over Oates and Dan McKeown. Joe Taylor was excluded, he had an incident in the chicane.

Marcus Littlewood was the best of the Mini Max and Jack Salmon the best of the Mini X30.

A few of the international OK Senior class were racing, with the evergreen Bobby Game coming out on top of a fierce fight with Roy Johnson. Johnson had managed to get ahead at the half way point but Game took the lead back in the Stratford hairpin in time to win. They lapped the X30’s of Nathan Herbert and Ethan Ling.

Over the shoulder pics just to feel euro!

Tom Owen enjoyed a thrilling battle for third place with the National Champion in TKM Extreme. Owen had come off the start in second but Jack Ransom squeezed past in the chicane on the first lap whilst the National Champion Harry Moore was only starting from a lowly eleventh, rapidly making up places. Sam Fowler led almost the entire race to win, Ransom only briefly ahead as the pair pulled away leaving Owen to succumb to Sam Johns. But Owen retrieved third at Park corner just before Moore came ripping past them both in two quick moves, although not able to pull clear. Owen grabbed a chance at Wilkins hairpin, took third back and defended on the last lap whilst Moore was demoted ten seconds for a pushed back front nose fairing. That elevated James Whitaker and Sam Johns and the rest who had been queuing in the train behind Owen on the last lap.

In the TKM Clubman class Suk Sandher and Graham Stewart battled for the win after James Cayzer slumped from his initial second. After a quick trade of first place, Sandher prevailed for the win with Christian Chater a close third. The class champion Andre Marot worked his way up to fourth then an incident dropped him to sixth, albeit he retrieved one place. 

kz
Shane Daly, Lee Ward and Miles Murphy were all separated by less than 2.5 seconds at the flag

In the KZ UK 125cc 6-speed gearbox class Lee Ward made the best of the standing start but had to give way to Shane Daly. But Daly hung on behind, the pair a couple of second ahead of Miles Murphy.

In a small 250 National gearbox grid Ross Allen was a very comfortable winner on a very smart looking kart. Alex Salmon brought up second after Mark Park faltered.

Shenington Kart Racing Club: 18 December 2016 – Round 1 2017 Championship

For the first time the club held the first round of its 2017 Club and Winter100 championship in December rather than in January.  The weather was kind, even some blue sky on Sunday, but the entry was a bit down on usual.  That allowed the club to offer three heats and a 12 minute final.

As usual the Cadet classes were popular, and in the Honda category Thomas Mills and Daniel Powell broke away at the front.  Despite Powell’s best efforts on the final lap, he could not find a gap in Mills’ defence.  Kean Berta relieved Roman Bilinski of third, Bilinski dropped to the back of the group but worked his way back up to third once more.  That was short lived as Berta re-took the position and held on until the end.  In the IAME 2-stroke category Archie Mace set off in the lead, chased by Bradley Beavers until Maximus Hall leapfrogged them all.  Coming into the chicane Mace made a pass for the lead but tagged Hall who spun then retired, and the incident allowed Beavers to take the lead.  That was brief as Joe Sheppy was momentarily leading until dropping to fourth then spinning down the order.  Beaver surged back to the front whilst Mace held second over Daniel Dudfield, one of twins in the same race.

James Pashley just lost out for the Junior TKM win despite trying desperately on the last lap to find an opening from rival Zak Oates.  The local driver sporting his number 9 seed had set off well, taking the lead from pole position but soon found himself exchanging that lead with Oates lap by lap.  Oates took the lead with a lap to go and just held on until the chequer flag.  Louis Harvey was having a lonely race in third whilst Joe Taylor came out on top of a scrap with Ross Deal and Dan McKeown.  Archie Hancox won the new economy Junior TKM Clubman category.  Their bigger brothers in the senior TKM class was split into the Extreme and economy Clubman classes and Dean Hale surprised everyone by carving through from pole of the second group, leaping through the gap between the classes and all the way to the overall front.  But his engine was found to be ineligible with a stuck piston ring, so excluded.  That left Joshua Sherriff to win over Matthew Taylor, the pair in a battle with initial leader James Whitaker, who had faded to fifth.  Then Colin Morris leapfrogged the whole trio, to lead for a lap before slipping back to seventh.  In the Clubman category Charlie Machin was also mixing it with supposedly more competitive Extremes, thus winning, whilst a few karts behind Chris Yates had a quick spin out of third but still managed to get back to that position, which became second after Hales’ exclusion.

Rufus Hunt was swift to pass Matthew Herbert in the well supported Junior X30 grid and set up an entertaining race with Jack Williams,  Alessandro Ceronetti and Kieran Wragg – back racing after a long lay off –  also having turns in the lead.  Every time Hunt was knocked back, he fought through to the front again, whilst Ceronetti was pushed wide in the chicane falling five places.  So Hunt won from Wragg and Bowen, but Wragg had a 10s penalty for a dropped front fairing.  Finally a meagre 250 National gearbox grid had Mike Darling making a terrific start to lead Edgehill’s Ross Allen and Aaron Powell with Mark Pask a non starter.  Allen was quick to lead, Powell soon also past Darling, but then Allen retired, followed soon after by Darling.

The superb entries for the OK Vega Trophy race drivers bidding for the splendid trophies on offer from Andy Cox Racing with his tyre deals combined with Vortex engine deals from Strawberry Racing made the total up to 190. After heavy overnight rain the track never dried out enough for slicks. 

As normal there were large grids of Cadets, the Honda four stroke practically full. As the second place battle raged, Daniel Guinchard kept eking out what became a near 4s cushion by the chequered flag. Thomas Mills and William Attreed were entertaining whilst trading second until Kean Berta intervened and despite falling back to sixth he leapfrogged into second on the last lap shuffle ahead of Drew Davidson and Mills. Attreed took a 10s penalty, he and Lorenzo Kordal had a coming together at the last hairpin, Kordal having won the IAME club championship and was trying Honda. Maurice Henry had already won the Honda club championship from Guinchard.

In the IAME 2-stroke category Jamie Mead come out of the start in seventh but soon leapfrogged all drivers up to second. Runaway leader Christopher Draper gradually faded back as Mead closed the gap to arrow into the lead and win.  Draper had a clash with William Macintyre who was excluded, already passed by Alfie Baxter-Davies and promoting Max Speed to third.

William Layton started eighth after the two heats in Junior TKM whilst compatriot James Pashley slotted into second behind Nathan Wells. Layton stormed up behind Pashley, soon replacing him and leaving him to be overtaken by Archie Strong before then spinning down to 13th in the tricky wet conditions. A battle with Wells saw Layton come out ahead for the win and taking the 2016 club championship, Zak Taylor coming up to third.

In the senior TKM classes Max Goldsmith catapulted out of the starting grid with William Lakin holding off the next pack of karts. Goldsmith was a master of the damp track, winning with a 7s gap to Lakin with Colin Morris dropping out of third to the back and replaced by Matthew Taylor. In the economy Clubman category SP plated André Marot kept his first place from the start to finish, throwing off a challenge from James Cayzer, the pair leaving Luke Bourne some distance in arrears. Marot has also won the club championship.

And another local win came courtesy of Ross Allen in the 250 National class. A poor start had him behind both Matthew Duncan and Aaron Powell but he was quickly past Duncan and then chased down Powell for the win by 5s.

In the concurrent KZ UK race Malcolm Smith had pole courtesy of a heat win and second, Dan Kelly crashing out of the first heat lead. Smith held off Lee Ward for the first few laps until Kelly stormed up and into the fight for the win and also clinched the championship. Sometimes three abreast  the karters put on a great show, Kelly eventually getting ahead when Smith slid a little wide at the last hairpin. As the top two 250 drivers overtook the KZ lead battle, Oliver Gemmill had a late charge to pip first Ward then Smith on the last corner for second.

Dan Kelly

Billy Mattock was another driver well set up for the continuing wet conditions, a good start sealed a 4s win over Matthew Biry in Junior X30. Biry had taken Harry Restall mid race, the latter hanging on ahead of Robert Welham who has won the championship.

In the Junior OK Vega Cup Jenson Butterfield led the 26 drivers away from pole but was soon taken by William Pettitt.  Butterfield and Mark Kimber had won the heats, each of them 9th in the other. Butterfield clung on to the lead in the final for a while but Pettitt had the pace to go clear leaving Kimber to challenge for second without success.  Dexter Patterson had pulled clear of Chris Lulham for fourth whilst Joe Turney came to the front of the next group.

In the Senior category Rory Hudson and Jacob Stilp were heat winners but Stilp had a 10s penalty in his other heat. Two good results gave the ever green Bobby Game pole and he held the initial lead from British Champion Oliver Hodgson with Scotsman Dean MacDonald in third but soon to retire. Game succumbed to Hodgson and later had to give way to Jacob Stilp. Roman Haskett acquitted himself well in the premier class with a fifth place behind Rory Hudson. Jack Dex had been making some good progress through the field but fell back to 13th mid race.

The Shenington ‘Christmas Cracker’ meeting will be held on the weekend of 17/18 December with some particularly good offers from JAG Engineering for the Rotax classes. It is the first round of the Winter100 3-round series and also the first round of the 2017 club championship
