PF International, 6th-8th April, 2018

The 36th edition of the Tuto Super One Series kicked off at the weekend at PF International with racing for the Rotax, X30 and Cadet classes in variable weather.

The Rotax classes have been rejuvenated by a new two-day race programme with Qualifying and Heats on Saturday and Finals on Sunday. Senior Rotax has gone from zero to 69 drivers, necessitating C and B Finals, while there were full grids in 177 and Junior Rotax and an increase in Minimax entries. Along with the always-healthy X30 and Cadet grids, altogether there were 301 entries.

The next round will be at Whilton Mill on 27th-29th April for the same classes.

MSA British Cadet Kart Championship

Qualifying on Friday evening saw Maxwell Dodds take pole ahead of William MacIntyre then Dodds and Arvid Lindblad won a heat each.

In a damp Final 1 Lindblad was on pole next to Dodds with Freddie Slater 3rd, and Lindblad led much of the race on his own before Slater caught up and overtook in the second half. Lindblad retook the lead with a lap to go and just managed to hold off Slater on the last lap. Harley Keeble was fastest and up to 3rd, with Dodds behind him.

In Final 2 it was now wet and there were many rolling laps before a red flag for the Race Director to have a word with the drivers. Lindblad held the lead from Slater with Dodds taking 3rd and a lead pack formed including the trio and Luke Watts. Dodds led half the last lap before Slater passed with a corner to go at the Mike Wilson complex.

MSA X30 Junior National Championship

Joseph Taylor took pole in Qualifying just ahead of Tom Edgar and Alex Lloyd but Axel LaFlamme took pole for Final 1 with a win and a 2nd in the heats, the other two wins going to Reggie Duhy and Clayton Ravenscroft.

Final 1 was almost dry and LaFlamme started on pole before being attacked for the lead by Ravenscroft, Duhy and others. Ravenscroft managed to get away while LaFlamme dropped back. Dragan Pinsent and Taylor fought for 2nd before Luke Whitehead carved his way through leaving Pinsent 3rd.

By Final 2 it was wet again and Ravenscroft pulled out a gap from pole ahead of Pinsent and Whitehead, who had swapped places. Pinsent was faster towards the end but not close enough to challenge on the last lap.

MSA X30 Senior National Championship

Oliver Hodgson took pole 0.2s ahead of Derek Morgan and went on to win both heats ahead of Lewis Malin and Levi King.

Hodgson led Final 1 all the way while Owen Byatt came through from 6th on the grid to finish 2nd ahead of King but too far away to challenge.

In a fully wet Final 2, Hodgson led initially away from pole while Byatt went off at the first corner. Elliot Harvey took 2nd and Morgan Porter 3rd, with Harvey starting to reel Hodgson in. Harvey overtook and got away with six minutes to go but Hodgson again pulled him back to regain the lead, with Harvey dropping back in a spin on the last lap with his throttle sticking open.

ABkC Honda Cadet National Championship

Theo Micouris took pole in the dry but cloudy Qualifying ahead of Sebastian Bloch. The heat wins went to Alfie Rigby, Micouris and Daniel Guinchard with Rigby taking pole for Final 1 as he also had a 2nd.

Rigby started Final 1 on pole with Micouris next to him and Kean Berta 3rd, but Micouris came down the hill in the lead, a second ahead of Berta. As the race went on, Berta was pushing Micouris in the slow corners and got into the lead with three minutes to go. Micouris, now fastest, swiftly fought back and pulled out a bit more of a gap. The battle for 3rd included Rigby, Bloch and Sonny Smith where there was contact at the first hairpin which shuffled things and Smith took the final podium position.

In Final 2 Rigby took the lead at the start, but under pressure from Bloch and Berta. Bloch took the lead and tried to get away while Berta and Rigby fought. There was contact between the two halfway through with Berta losing places, and Oliver Greenall moved up to 2nd from Rigby. Archie Walker came through to 3rd, even threatening Greenall but later received a bumper penalty, giving 3rd back to Rigby, behind Bloch and Greenall.

ABkC Minimax National Championship

Myles Barthorpe was the poleman after Qualifying ahead of Sam Gornall and Max Edmundson then Barthorpe and Edmundson took a heat win each.

From pole Barthorpe led throughout Final 1 while behind him Marcus Littlewood came through from 6th on the grid to take 2nd before being dislodged by Max Edmundson two laps from the end with Archie Kitching also coming through to take 3rd.

Littlewood made a good start in Final 2 but he spun, causing chaos in the pack on the wet track. Poleman Barthorpe held the lead with Edmundson pushing before Edmundson also spun. Sean Cuss was fastest and was putting pressure on the leader Barthorpe but Barthorpe just held him off on the last lap. Cuss was penalised after the race giving Edmundson back 2nd and 3rd to Ellis Puleio.

ABkC Junior Rotax National Championship

In Qualifying James Lowther took pole ahead of Guy Cunnington then it was straight into the heats where Lowther stayed ahead with two 2nds and the wins went to Cunnington and Oakley Pryer.

Lowther led away from pole in Final 1 and after initially getting away, Cunnington reeled him back in and overtook on lap 5 with Kai Hunter following him through. Hunter and Lowther battled for the rest of the race with Cameron Thomson lying in ambush, but Cunnington won 1.7s ahead of Lowther and Hunter.

In Final 2, Cunnington started on pole but Lowther took the lead at the start. Thomson was 3rd and initially fastest but the positions stayed the same until the end on the wet track.

ABkC Senior Rotax National Championship

The biggest class of the weekend saw Joe Turney take pole 0.06s ahead of Charlie Turner while heat wins went to Rhys Hunter twice, Jason Lockwood, Joe Turney and Tommy Foster. Turney was well down the grid after a penalty in the first heat.

By the time the Senior Rotax karts went out for their first Final it was damp but the drivers were still on slicks. Hunter was on pole next to Ben Davis with Foster in 3rd. Hunter got away at the start with James Johnson and Turner behind him. They were spread out for a while, but Turner reeled Johnson in and Johnson came under pressure from James Lingard who took 3rd with a minute to go. Johnson just about managed to regain the position while Myles Apps pressured Lingard. Hunter won 1.44s ahead of Turner with Johnson 3rd.

Final 2 was fully wet and at the start Johnson took 2nd on the first lap behind Hunter. Johnson slid off after four minutes racing with Bradley Barrett now 3rd behind Turner. Fastest man on the track Turney was reeling in the leaders and with three minutes left on the clock was attacking Hunter for the lead while Barrett was attacking Turner for 3rd. Turney took the lead and went on to win by 3s for his second podium of the day, following his 3rd place in X30 Senior.

Trent Valley KC Club Championship

ABkC Rotax 177 National Championship

Oliver Smith just pipped Louis Large for pole in Qualifying then Large won both heats followed by James Moorcroft in one and Smith in the other.

Large led all the way in Final 1, pulling away from Jamie Dzyra who was 2nd until a coming-together with James Beacroft in 3rd put him down to 12th and Beacroft out of the meeting with a bent kart. This left Lucas Vaus 6s back in 2nd and Jason Wilson 3rd.

Poleman Large held the lead at the start of Final 2 with Chris Thomas up to 2nd. 2nd on the grid Vaus was off at the start but was to restart two laps later, as every meeting counts in this class. Charlie Whaley took 3rd before going off onto the back straight, giving the place to Smith, but now far back from the leaders. Dzyra and Alexander Luck then tussled for the final podium position, with Luck taking it but 9s behind Thomas.

Mini X30 Support Race

Joshua Rowledge topped Qualifying a quarter-second ahead of Joshua McLean and the two took a win each in the two heats, giving Rowledge pole.

One of the most tightly fought battles of the weekend took place in Final 1 with Rowledge, Rashan Chigorimbo, Ivan Lomliev and McLean all taking turns in the lead and McLean crossing the line first, but several penalties in the lead pack gave the win to Lomliev from Aaron Walker and Jessica Edgar.

In Final 2 Rowledge made a good start to take 3rd on the fast lap from 14th on the grid and took the lead three laps in with Edgar taking 2nd halfway through. McLean finished 3rd on the track, but he and leader Rowledge were both penalised for their bumpers so Edgar won ahead of Matthew Higgins and Lomliev.

Tuto Super One Series, Round 9, Shenington

26th-27th August

Summer weather at Shenington accompanied close racing in the six classes present, with five classes seeing a change of Championship leader. The next and final round for all classes except Rotax 177 will be at PF International on 9th-10th September.

Rotax 177 have completed their three rounds for the year with Chris Thomas and Tony Dickinson the recipients of Rotax Max Grand Finals tickets, meanwhile in OK and OKJ the World Championship ticket recipients are Guy Cunnington, Alex Eades, Kieran Long, Ben Wooldridge, Oliver Clarke and James Lingard.

MSA British Kart Championship

Round 3

On Saturday Mark Kimber took pole, just 0.01s ahead of Oliver Clarke and 0.05s ahead of Jamie Flynn then it was straight into the Finals as part of the two-day double-header format.

Roy Johnson gained five places to win Final 1 ahead of Bobby Game with Ryan Green a further 4s behind. Johnson had a battle with Clarke towards the end but Clarke then dropped back into the pack.

Johnson went on to win Final 2, leading throughout, while Clarke came back from 6th on the grid to take 2nd from Joe Turney on the last lap, and Flynn inherited 3rd after Turney dropped back.

Round 4

Turney took pole on Sunday morning, a fraction ahead of Kimber and Flynn, and then Kimber took the Final 1 win ahead of Clarke and Turney after defeating Turney for the lead. Former leader Flynn dropped out.

Johnson took another win in Final 2 after Flynn, Game and Turney all seized, Flynn while way out in the lead. Clarke took 3rd from Turney just before halfway and hung on for 2nd when Flynn seized.

Kimber has taken the lead of the Championship, 11 points ahead of Clarke with Turney another two points behind that.

MSA British Junior Kart Championship

Round 3

Harry Thompson took pole by 0.4s from Shihab Al Habsi in Timed Qualifying on Saturday and won Final 1 ahead of Morgan Porter and Al Habsi in a race that included a Battenberg flag period due to a crash for Kieran Long and Joe Weaver.

In Final 2 Thompson led all the way, with Guy Cunnington spending most of the time in 2nd but unable to stop Thompson increasing the gap. Porter took 3rd from Al Habsi just after halfway.

Round 4

On Sunday Jamie Day took pole in a field depleted by the absence of Thompson and Porter, while Cunnington won Final 1 from Luca Griggs and Day.

Cunnington battled Al Habsi for the lead in Final 2 but Al Habsi eventually dropped back, leaving Cunnington to win three tenths ahead of Alex Eades, who had come from the back of the grid.

Cunnington and Day are joint leaders of the Championship going into the Final round with Al-Habsi 17 points behind.

MSA TKM Senior National Championship

Alex Rees took pole and two heat wins in this popular class with Harry Moore taking the other heat win, but Rees remained in the lead of the Intermediate Classification.

In Final 1 Rees held the lead at the start before Moore overtook on lap 3, with Stephen Letts reeling in Rees all the time until he passed for 2nd towards the end.

Moore, Letts and Rees battled for the lead in Final 2 with tiny gaps separating most of the field, and Moore secured the lead near the end with Rees dropping to the back after Letts took 2nd.

Letts has now taken the points lead ahead of Simon Vercoe, who didn’t achieve his usual results this weekend, with Adam Sparrow 3rd.

MSA TKM Junior National Championship

Abbi Pulling qualified on pole while the heat wins went to Ross Deal and Robert Welham.

Final 1 saw a victory for Welham less than a tenth ahead of Pulling after they had battled for the lead throughout the race, with James Pashley finishing 3rd.

Welham also won Final 2 in a close-fought race where Pulling was disqualified from 3rd after an incident with Pashley, which promoted fastest lapper Zak Taylor onto the podium behind Connor Kearney.

Pulling has appealed the disqualification which has obvious Championship implications, but as things stand Deal is in the lead by 22 points ahead of Pashley with Pulling 3rd.

ABkC Honda Cadet National Championship

Oliver Bearman took pole 0.04s ahead of Oliver Greenall then went on to take 1st and 2nd in the heats. Greenall and Aston Millar took the other heat wins with Greenall taking 2nd on the Final 1 grid and Khali Atkins 3rd.

Bearman battled Archie Brown in the early stages of Final 1 then led the rest of the way, but he never managed to shake Brown, or Greenall, off and the top three finished within 0.2s. Championship frontrunner Joshua McLean went off at the start.

Final 2 was a hard-fought race with Bearman, Brown, Alfie Rigby and Theo Micouris all spending time in the lead, but Bearman prevailed again to beat another lead pack member Sonny Smith by 0.17s with Greenall completing the podium.

Bearman now has a 30-point lead over Lucas Ellingham with McLean another 21 points behind.

ABkC Rotax 177 National Championship

The Rotax drivers have now completed the season after rounds at Clay Pigeon and Whilton Mill. Chris Thomas qualified on pole with Marcus Bazley 2nd but bad luck in the heats put Bazley down the Final 1 grid while Thomas was on pole next to the other heat winner James Beacroft.

Thomas won Final 1 while Beacroft secured 2nd after fighting off Alexander Luck who came in 3rd. It was a similar story in Final 2 which finished with the same podium positions.

Larkhall 12th – 13th August

The Super One Series is reaching its climax in Scotland during the summer holidays with most classes only having one more event to go. Practice and Qualifying were wet or drying but the Finals ran on a dry track.

MSA British Cadet Kart Championship

Oliver Gray took pole in Timed Qualifying ahead of Arvid Lindblad and held it after the heats, but the big news this weekend is that Taylor Barnard’s winning streak is over after a DNF in the first Final. He had a wheel bearing failure in the first heat which put him well down the Intermediate classification.

Irishman Alex Dunne took the lead at the start of Final 1 after Gray started on pole, and won 0.45s ahead of Maxwell Dodds who had also been 2nd after the heats. Lindblad took 3rd after defeating Gray a few laps from the end.

In Final 2 Dunne again led from start to finish ahead of Dodds while Barnard stormed through the field, gaining 24 places to 3rd.

Barnard is 111 points ahead of Dunne going into the next and final round, on 10th September at PF International in Lincolnshire.

ABkC Honda Cadet National Championship

Oliver Greenall took pole out of the 33 Hondas, just a fraction ahead of Oliver Bearman and Sonny Smith, but it was Bearman who took two heat wins, with the other going to Lucas Ellingham. Greenall was 2nd on the Final 1 grid with two 2nds.

Alfie Rigby, starting from 5th on the grid, won Final 1 after working his way through the leading group to attack Bearman a few laps from the end. Bearman dropped to 4th but was back to 2nd on the last lap. Ellingham finished 3rd but was excluded for driving standards, giving the position to Oliver Stewart.

In Final 2 Bearman got his revenge, leading most of the way until he was reeled in and briefly headed by Archie Brown but Bearman regained the lead with Brown dropping to 4th then recovering to 2nd at the flag, with Owen Tolley finishing 3rd for his first national podium.

The penultimate round for Honda Cadet is on 26th and 27th August at Shenington in Oxfordshire, with Mclean 37 points ahead of Ellingham.

ABkC Minimax National Championship

Tom Adams qualified on pole just under a tenth ahead of Lewis Gilbert but Gilbert won both heats with Adams 2nd and 3rd. Gilbert led all the way in Final 1 in a quiet race with Kai Hunter 2nd and Adams 3rd. It was the same story in Final 2 but with Adams and Hunter the other way round.

The next and final round for Minimax is on 10th September at PF International in Lincolnshire, where Gilbert will be looking to secure the Championship from Adams.

ABkC Junior Max National Championship

Lewis Gilbert, doing double duty, took pole in Junior Max 0.06s ahead of Rhys Hunter with Clayton Ravenscroft 3rd. Bradley Barrett was on pole for Final 1 though with two 2nds in the heats while Finlay Bunce was 2nd and heat-winner Ravenscroft again 3rd. Hunter won the other heat but was 6th after a less-good result, while Gilbert had two bad results.

Hunter won both Finals, the first after coming through then reeling in Ravenscroft, with Barrett taking 3rd. In the second he led throughout the race, pulling away from Bunce who was then passed by Tyler Chesterton.

Chesterton still leads the Championship, 63 points ahead of Barrett, going into the next and final round on 10th September at PF International in Lincolnshire.

Glan-Y-Gors, 8th-9th July

The Tuto Super One Series visited the spectacular and immaculate Glan-Y-Gors circuit in North Wales this weekend with racing for the IAME Cadet, X30, TKM and Rotax classes.

Some of the championships are very close to being settled but the regulations say that to receive a Championship position drivers must compete at all rounds unless they have special permission, so nothing is settled until PF International in September. That said, Danny Keirle is impossible to catch in Senior X30 and becomes the first unofficial champion with a round to spare! His arrival at PFI will be enough to give him the coveted title and will be more of a ceremonial weekend that a competitive one.

MSA British Cadet Kart Championship

On Saturday Taylor Barnard took pole by 0.06s from Arvid Lindblad and Josh Irfan but Irfan took pole for Final 1 with 1st and 3rd in the heats, while Barnard took 2nd and 4th. Freddie Slater was 3rd after the heats with 2nd and 4th.

The unstoppable Barnard took the lead on the first lap of the first Final and stayed ahead, although he never shook off Slater. Alex Dunne passed Irfan for 3rd early on but was battling with Lindblad in the latter half so didn’t get a chance to catch Barnard and Slater. Lindblad was later penalised a lap for driving in a manner incompatible with general safety.

In Final 2 Dunne and Slater both led the race in the early stages but Barnard retook control on lap 7 to win by a tenth, with the same podium positions as the race before. Dunne took 3rd after battling Irfan and Maxwell Dodds before Rashan Chigorimbo came through to 4th.

The Cadets have two rounds to go, with the next one being at Larkhall in Scotland on 13th August, and Barnard leads by 128 points from Matthew Rees with Slater a further 17 points behind in 3rd.

Taylor Barnard

MSA X30 Junior National Championship

Morgan Porter narrowly took pole ahead of Samuel White and Championship leader Louie Westover, while the heat wins went to Porter, Alex Simmonds and Westover, giving Porter pole again. Westover had a DNF in his first heat so was down in 18th.

Porter led Final 1 throughout apart from a lap where the closely following Simmonds nipped past, but Simmonds dropped back and Porter was penalised a lap for gaining an unfair advantage, giving Dragan Pinsent the win. Pinsent had been running just over a second behind them and crossed the line followed by Sean Butcher and Samuel White.

In Final 2 Butcher led most of the race after taking the lead at the start, apart from three laps with Pinsent in control in the early stages. However, Pinsent retook the lead on the last lap to win with White 3rd behind Butcher.

Louie Westover still leads the Championship, by 26 points from Butcher with Pinsent just three points behind that. The X30 Juniors have one round left, at PF International on 10th September.

Dragan Pinsent

MSA X30 Senior National Championship

Championship leader Danny Keirle took pole almost a tenth ahead of Levi King but Oliver Hodgson, who qualified 4th, won two heats while Keirle and 3rd qualifier Mark Kimber won a heat each to take 2nd and 3rd on the Final 1 grid.

In Final 1 Hodgson started from pole and although Keirle made a better start Hodgson led every lap to win from Kimber and Brett Ward, with very few position changes at the sharp end, possibly attributable to tyre conservation.

In Final 2 Luke Hughes spent a few laps in the lead following a Slow period to sort out an crash between Jenson Butterfield and Joe Turney, but Hodgson overtook and pulled away with Ward taking 2nd at half distance. Hodgson was a couple of tenths faster so Ward wasn’t able to reel him in.

Keirle is now the champion in Senior X30 and even on dropped scores is impossible to catch. They now have one round left, at PF International on 10th September where focus will turn to who can join Danny on the championship podium. The man below will be looking to continue his unbeaten run in finals which now stands at six straight races!

MSA TKM Junior National Championship

Championship leader Abbi Pulling qualified on pole, 0.13s ahead of Daniel Butterworth with Robert Welham 3rd. She went on to win both heats, giving her pole for Final 1 with Alexander Page lining up next to her after two 2nd places in the heats.

Pulling led throughout Final 1 and Page finished a few tenths behind after retaking the position from Zak Taylor early on, while Rookie Ethan Newsham foreshadowed what was to come by gaining 15 places and setting the fastest lap.

Final 2 was lively with Pulling leading to start with but dropping out with a damaged fuel pipe that she had been holding on to, then Kurt Roberts and Newsham battled for the lead with Newsham securing it two laps from the end.

Pulling is still the Championship leader, with a 16-point margin over Ross Deal. The TKM Juniors have two rounds left, the next being at Shenington on 27th August.

MSA TKM Senior National Championship

Adam Sparrow took pole ahead of James Mills and Harry Moore, and he retained it after two heat wins while 6th qualifier Jake Campbell-Mills lined up next to him on the Final 1 grid with Mills 3rd.

Sparrow led most of Final 1 apart from a challenge from Simon Vercoe who led two laps, and finished almost four tenths behind. Joe Stockford was 3rd after passing Campbell-Mills eight laps in.

In Final 2 Sparrow led initially before Stockford and Vercoe joined the battle for the lead with Stockford taking the win ahead of Sparrow, after a last lap fight put the erstwhile leader Vercoe back to 3rd.

Simon Vercoe has now taken the Championship lead, 18 points ahead of Stephen Letts. The TKM Extremes have two rounds left, the next being at Shenington on 27th August.

ABkC Minimax National Championship

Lewis Gilbert was the poleman in Minimax, a couple of tenths faster than Jamie Day with Tom Adams 3rd. Gilbert and Day stayed at the front after the heats but Kai Hunter had moved up to 3rd after two unsuccessful heats for Adams.

In Final 2 Gilbert led until halfway but Day attacked and took the lead. Then as the race reached the closing stages Hunter attacked for 2nd and Gilbert dropped to 4th with Adams recovering to 3rd.

Gilbert moved up into the lead of Final 2 within the first few laps while Hunter moved up to 2nd ahead of Adams and Day. Hunter was getting closer and closer to Gilbert but wasn’t able to secure the lead.

Gilbert is the Championship leader, 27 points ahead of Adams, and the Minimaxes have two rounds left, the next one scheduled for Larkhall on 13th August.

Lewis Gilbert

ABkC Junior Max National Championship

Bradley Barrett took pole 0.07s ahead of Clayton Ravenscroft and Tom Edmunds who set equal times, and Tyler Chesterton another hundredth behind them. Ravenscroft and Chesterton shared the heat wins while Edmunds had a DNF in one of his putting him halfway down the Final 1 grid.

The rivalry between Ravenscroft and Chesterton continued in Final 1 with Chesterton recovering from losing places at the start to close up on Ravenscroft and take the lead three laps from the end, with Ravenscroft continuing to pressure him. Barrett ran 3rd and close to the lead battle for most of the race.

In Final 2 Chesterton led all the way and Barrett took 2nd at the start. Ravenscroft had dropped back at the start but worked his way back through to 2nd to finish four tenths ahead of Barrett.

Chesterton is still the Championship leader, but Barrett has now moved up to 2nd ahead of Rhys Hunter. The Junior Maxes have two rounds left, the next one scheduled for Larkhall on 13th August.

Fulbeck would welcome back Super One for a second year after a seven year absence and with it the circuit had made several upgrades to host the meeting. New toilets and showers were the main upgrade requested after last year and the general feedback from the drivers was very positive.

On top of that the racing was very close and competitive. There were some first lap incidents as ever and drivers cutting the chicanes was policed very well from what I could see in the commentary box. Overall I think Fulbeck put on a good show and deserve another visit next season.

IAME Cadet

The IAME Cadet class was once again the Taylor Barnard show as the Fusion Motorsport driver continues his dominance in a usually very competitive class. He qualified pole and went on to win both heats and both finals further extending his already comfortable championship lead.

His closest challenge over the weekend no longer came from a teammate or fellow seeded driver, it instead came from Arvid Lindblad (interview below). Since becoming the first driver to join Oliver Rowland’s (F2 driver) new kart team Arvid has risen in confidence and was just half a second away from Barnard in a close run first final. From the front row Chris Draper led the battle for 3rd home which took Josh Irfan and Alex Dunne prisoner after they came together at the last corner just laps from the end of the race.

Final two was a different story when it came to the lead battle. Barnard broke clear from Draper at the start, but when the pack was brought back together when the battenburg flags came out. With the likes of Matthew Rees and Lindblad just behind Draper it looked like Barnard’s lead was coming under threat, but you have to give the championship leader credit as he nailed the start and went on to take victory.

Behind the battle for 2nd became fierce with a growing queue of karts forming which eventually ended up back to 13th place. In the midst of it all were impressive performances from the likes of Max Dodds who finished 5th and gained nine places, Freddie Slater finished 7th and gained twelve places and Alex Dunne finished 10th and gained eighteen places. But at the front of the queue Rees and Lindblad joined Barnard on the podium after Draper was disqualified from the final.

Mini Max

A slight increase in grids for the Mini Max saw six drivers take to the track at Fulbeck. All weekend the main battle on track was between Tom Adams, Lewis Gilbert, Jamie Day and Kai Hunter for the win with Ben Caisley and Jenson Parker going head to head for 5th place.

Gilbert won heat one comfortably and for neutrals it was a worry that was a sign of things to come but a cracking heat two saw Hunter just pip Gilbert and Hunter to the flag with the Caisley, Parker battle at 1-1.

Final one for the most part looked to be a straight fight for victory between Gilbert and Day. The latter took the lead eight laps in before the battle recommenced with two laps to go. As the pair began to dispute the lead, Adams had started to close in and was able to pick up 2nd from Day in the process.

Final two was the best race of the weekend in the Mini Max class. All four lead contenders took their turn to lead and with five laps to go Adams was leading Day, Gilbert and Hunter in that order. From there on despite the order not changing the lead was closely contested and Adams did a good job defending to take a well-deserved victory! Behind the top four Parker took 5th with Caisley not starting the race.

Junior TKM

Perhaps the most entertaining class of the weekend. Once again Junior TKM delivered to it’s high standards of racing with the closest racing all weekend. The heats saw a mixed bag of results, Daniel Butterworth took the win in heat one with James Pashley holding on to his pole position in heat two to secure the top spot for final one.

Despite a brief lead from Zak Taylor, Pashley had held on to his lead and as the battling started to commence he was able to pull a slight gap. However, once Kurt Roberts and Abbi Pulling started to work together he was quickly closed back and it wasn’t long before Pulling led. Ross Deal then had his turn at the front, but it was only brief as a race winning move came from Pulling just three laps in which was enough to take the win with Deal having to defend from Pashley and Roberts to hold on to 2nd.

Final two was by far the best race from the whole weekend in any class! It had a number of different race leaders and saw the lead group go as far back as 13th! At the front we had three different race leaders in four laps with Pulling, Deal and Roberts. Pulling was the one most determined to hold on to the race lead and did so before Deal started to challenge again in the second half of the race. As the top four battled away Scott McIntyre led the 5th place train up to the lead group with a number of drivers now in contention.

But up front Deal did a brilliant job in defending his race lead from teammate Pulling and won in the end by just 0.05 seconds! Roberts finished 3rd with the top 12 covered by just 2.67 seconds. In 12th was Spencer Stevenson, the rookie gained 17 places setting a time just 0.04 seconds off the fastest lap!

Junior Rotax

Despite taking pole position Lewis Gilbert did not have a weekend to remember and was absent from both finals. In the heats Clayton Ravenscroft and Bradley Barrett for 1st and 2nd in both heats with Tyler Chesterton and Tommy Foster sharing 3rd place.

Final one produced a very entertaining battle, Ravenscroft led early doors but championship leader Chesterton was out to try and extend his lead and hit the front seven laps in. Quickly queuing up behind were the KR Sport trio in Ravenscroft, Tom Edmunds, Rhys Hunter with Barrett and Foster also there. It was Edmunds who looked like he had timed his race to perfection as he hit the front with just a handful of laps to go, but perhaps with some inexperience in winning Super One races he lost that to Chesterton who won from Hunter with Edmunds 3rd.

Winning by over one second you’d have thought the race was straight forward for Chesterton, but that was far from the truth. After seven laps, clearly fired up Edmunds took the lead but was quickly passed by Ravenscroft. With as many as 12 drivers now in contention it was a tough race to call, but when Chesterton re-took the lead with two laps to go, Ravenscroft in 2nd had to get on the defensive which saw Chesterton take a comfortable and well deserved win. With some penalties being awarded Finlay Bunce took 2nd gaining seven places and Edmunds rounded out the podium in 3rd.

Junior X30

As ever the Junior X30 class was a highly anticipated race with the championship still wide open. Quickly turning into a contender is Dragan Pinsent, after his win at Whilton Mill Pinsent took pole for Final one after pole in qualifying and a win and 2nd in the heats. Morgan Porter and Louie Westover had both scored the same points which put the result back to qualifying,

Of all the best start came from Reggie Duhy who was straight into the lead from p5, before the championship leader himself Westover hit the front in 5th. Despite a number of drivers queuing up behind Westover had the balance of putting in good laps whilst convincing his opponents not to go in on him. In all of this Samuel White was charging through the order but that would come to nothing as he was reportedly given a penalty seven hours after the race. Back at the front and Pinsent re-took the lead with three laps to go and pulled the pin to take victory from Westover, Duhy and Porter. Big movers included Luke Whitehead in 7th (15 places), Louie Short in 12th (17 places) and Caeson Gibson in 13th (21 places).

Final two was another close one where there were surprisingly just two race leaders in Westover and Porter. Westover was once again under big pressure at the front and didn’t seem to have the pace out front to comfortably lead. That saw him drop to 3rd place as Porter took the lead from White with Pinsent rounding at the lead quartet. In the dying stages of the race the lead quartet broke up leaving Porter and White to contest the lead and Pinsent and Westover to contest 3rd. They’d finish in that order with Porter further closing in on Westover in the championship.

TKM Extreme

Sam Fowler continues his rise up the championship order as he out in another good performance at Fulbeck. Pole position and a 1st and 2nd in the heats were enough to put him in the front row for final one, with Chris Whitton alongside, a driver on the recovery after a difficult start to the season.

Taking the victory in final one was Whitton but he unfortunatley received a ten second front fairing penalty dropping him to 8th place. In the eight-kart battle for the lead Fowler had finished 2nd so he was promoted to the win, Harry Moore in need of some good points jumped up to 2nd with Joe Stockford 3rd. Stephen Letts did well to recover from a mixed set of heats to finish 4th.

Final two saw Fowler get off to a good start from pole position with Simon Vercoe and Letts close behind in 2nd and 3rd. The championship leader, Letts, then moved up to 2nd but knowing they need to take points off him Moore and Vercoe came back past and were followed by Whitton, Whittingham and Stockford. Up front Fowler, Moore and Stockford eventually escaped but would not contest the lead and finished in that order after 17 laps with Letts down in 9th.

Senior X30

Joe Turney was unbeatable on Saturday as he took pole position and both his heat wins. Also winning heats were Josh Skelton and Danny Keirle who would start final one in 2nd and 3rd with Brad Pennell 4th. After an incident in one heat Oliver Hodgson would start in 7th.

Turney didn’t get final one off to the best start as he dropped down to 7th place whilst Elliot Harvey was making his way through from 6th on the grid to lead. Behind Pennell continued to impress as he worked his way through to 2nd, but that was soon taken by Hodgson who now his weekend back on track. Behind Turney had also come back through to 3rd and both would move up the order post-race with Harvey receiving a ten second front fairing penalty. Rounding out the top three was Keirle.

In final two it was actually Turney who got off to the best start taking the lead before Keirle had his turn to lead and that was followed by Hodgson who would lead up until the red flag. An incident up at the turn two hairpin saw Paul Stewart needing medical attention which would bring a pause to the race with just under five minutes to go. At the restart there was no stopping Hodgson who nailed the initial getaway before setting times two or three tenths quicker than the rest of the field to take a very deserving victory from Pennell and Keirle who gained 3rd after Turney was given a penalty post-race. It was a shame for the KR Sport driver who set a very impressive fastest lap.

3rd-4th June, Clay Pigeon

The Tuto Super One Series completed its fifth event at the Dorset circuit of Clay Pigeon, featuring the first two rounds of the British Championships for the international classes OK and OK-Junior. Honda Cadet and the two TKM classes had their third rounds with entries large enough for Repechages in two of the three classes.

Clay Pigeon was the first of three events in the MSA British Championships for OK and OK-Junior and was run as two separate rounds on Saturday and Sunday with Qualifying and two Finals on each day. Both classes were very close but while Harry Thompson edged it in the Junior class, there was no dominant force in the Seniors, with four different winners.

Billy Monger was presented with the money raised at the Rowrah Super One round – £3000 from collections and £1000 each from Super One and Cumbria Kart Racing Club.

The weather was dry but cloudy for most of the weekend, with a few disruptive showers.

ABkC Honda Cadet National Championship

Ivan Lomliev opened the scoring in Honda Cadet with pole in Timed Qualifying by 0.05s from Championship leader Archie Brown, but he dropped down the order after a DNF in his first heat while Brown and Joshua McLean shared the heat wins.

McLean started on pole for the first Final but he lost out at the start, so Brown went on to win ahead of Oliver Greenall despite a challenge from Ellingham.

Brown led Final 2 all the way with Greenall on his bumper and Sonny Smith eventually taking 3rd within the leading pack, which also included Theo Micouris and Aston Millar.

Brown has now extended his Championship lead to 58 points ahead of McLean going into the next round at Larkhall in Scotland on 13th August.

MSA British Junior Kart Championship

Round 1

Harry Thompson took pole ahead of local driver Oakley Pryer, and Thompson went on to win Final 1 0.66s ahead of Alex Eades and Guy Cunnington with Pryer 4th. Cunnington was 2nd to Thompson for most of the race, then Eades overtook three laps from the end.

The weather put an end to Final 2 with a red flag just after half distance with Morgan Porter winning ahead of Luca Griggs and Tommy Foster, after Thompson had retired out of 2nd the lap before.

Harry Thompson

Round 2

Thompson qualified on pole again on Sunday ahead of Alex Eades and Morgan Porter, then Thompson took a lights-to-flag win in Final 1 from Eades who was locked in battle with Porter, which allowed Jamie Day to catch up and take 3rd.

Final 2 was another dominant race for Thompson with Eades and Day fighting for 2nd, before a coming together between the two caused a red flag shortly before the race was due to end.

Thompson is leading in the points 15 ahead of Eades with the next rounds at Shenington in Oxfordshire on 26th and 27th August.

Morgan Porter

MSA British Kart Championship

Round 1

Joe Turney took pole for Saturday’s Round 1 in an incredibly tight session where the top seven were all within the same tenth. He was followed by Jamie Flynn and William Pettitt.

In Final 1 Roy Johnson came from the back to the front to win by half a second ahead of Gus Lawrence after Turney had led most of the race. Roman Haskett was another one to come through the field in Final 2, passing Johnson on lap 19 and followed through by Flynn who had been DQed in the first race. Oliver Clarke overtook Johnson on the last lap to complete the podium.

Mark Kimber – Strawberry Racing – Clay Pigeon – #Kartpix – #superoneseries

Round 2

Turney took pole again on Sunday in a session which was again incredibly close. Mark Kimber and Bobby Game were next, within 0.04s.

Final 1 saw Turney passed by Lawrence after nine laps before he was in turn overcome by Kimber in the closing stages. In Final 2, Clarke and Johnson stormed through the field with newer tyres after retiring early in Final 1. Turney took the lead from Kimber early on which he held for half the race until Clarke took control and went on to win, three laps later followed by Johnson.

With four different winners over the two rounds, the British Championship is wide open but as the most consistent Turney is the Championship leader by three points from Kimber, with Lawrence six points behind that. The next rounds are at Shenington on 26th and 27th August.

Roy Johnson

MSA TKM Senior National Championship

In TKM Extreme Qualifying the top five lapped within a tenth, headed by Kristian Brierley from Adam Sparrow and Simon Vercoe, with the heat wins going to Lewis Wadley, Sparrow and Vercoe, with Vercoe taking pole for Final 1.

Final 1 was wet and cut short by a red flag while Vercoe was in the lead, following challenges from Stephen Letts and Peter Newman.

In better weather, Final 2 saw close battles with Vercoe, Newman and Lee Whittingham fighting over the lead before Letts swooped in to take control near the end, winning with Whittingham 2nd and Bradley White, another member of the lead pack, 3rd.

In the Championship, Letts is leading by 27 points from Vercoe with Taylor a further 54 points behind that. The TKMs will have their next round at Fulbeck in Lincolnshire on 25th June.

Stephen Letts

MSA TKM Junior National Championship

Zak Oates took pole with the same fastest lap as Championship leader Abbi Pulling but a faster second-fastest lap, but Pulling won both heats with Oates twice 2nd.

In the rainy Final 1 Pulling lost the lead on the first lap to Ross Deal and ended up 5th, while James Pashley came through to take the lead at half distance, ahead of Theo Hesketh who made up 15 places.

In Final 2 in better weather Pulling worked her way through to hit the front at half distance to win ahead of Pashley and the other race leader Kurt Roberts, after Hesketh was dropped down from 3rd with a bumper penalty.

Pulling is still the leader of the Championship with Pashley now four points ahead of Deal in 2nd and 3rd, heading into the next round at Fulbeck on 25th June.

Tuto Super One Series Round 4 Report

WordPress database error: [Table 'kmuk_db.wp_fblb' doesn't exist]
SELECT * FROM wp_fblb WHERE id = 1

The Super One Series continued it’s season with an annual visit to Whilton Mill. On track were the Cadet, Rotax and X30 classes and ahead of the weekend Whilton had installed new barriers at the last corners with the inside kerb also having work done on it all in preparation.

Those barriers were put into use when Rotax 177 driver Darryl Bray came off in final one at high speed which sent him flying out of the kart. Darryl was carefully put into the back of an ambulance with fear of back injuries but he later walked away from the incident fine. The TDi Media team did manage to catch the accident in slow motion!

Returning to the Super One paddock was Billy Monger. Just a few weeks after having both lower legs amputated Billy was back working for Virtus Motorsport driver coaching the Honda Cadet drivers and his return put a smile on everyone’s face. He is truly inspirational and I don’t know a driver that didn’t want to win for him that weekend. TDi Media caught up with Billy to find out how he was doing.

MSA British Cadet Kart Championship

Matthew Rees took pole position in qualifying in IAME Cadet before Taylor Barnard and Archie Mace took a win a piece in the heats all of which left Barnard on pole for final one.

As the drivers exited the pits for final one rain fell and fairly heavy rain at that! All of which mixed things up for the race ahead, one driver who fell victim to the rain early doors was Rees who spun at turn three dropping back through the field.

Out front Alex Dunne and Barnard were the lead two. Dunne was caught by Barnard who eventually passed him, but Dunne appeared to get back through on the last lap becoming the first driver to beat Barnard in a final in 2017. But all of that hard work was eventually for nothing as Dunne was put to the back as he had his transponder missing meaning Barnard inherited victory. It was a real shame for the Irish man who would now have to fight back in final two.

Behind Rashan Chigorimbo had driven a fantastic race to come through from 16th to 3rd and should have moved up to 2nd post-race but he was disqualified for coming in underweight meaning Max Dodds gained 2nd with the rookie William Macintyre 3rd.

There was drama right at the start of final two with Macintyre suffering mechanical issues before the race event started! At the front Barnard led but on the move was Rees who went off grid 7. He caught and passed Barnard with just a few laps to go and had a lead of 0.4 seconds going on to the last lap.

But Barnard caught the Welsh man and threw one up the inside going into the second part of the boot in one of the moves of the season to keep his unbeaten run going. Behind there was another podium for Freddie Slater who managed to hold off Dodds, whilst Alex Dunne drove the race of the season gaining 26 places to finish 5th. I guess some things happen for a reason…

Taylor Barnard

ABkC Honda Cadet National Championship

After qualifying and three heats heading into finals day it was Archie Brown who would be on pole position with Harvey Charter 2nd and Lucas Ellingham 3rd.

Brown and Charter shared the lead in the early stages of the race, but Global Karting teammates Josh McLean and Ellingham got a break four laps in and took full advantage by working together to break clear out front. Behind Oliver Bearman was recovering from an average Saturday and had gained 10 places to be in 3rd after just six laps.

Up front the battle for the lead went down to the wire saw Ellingham steal victory from McLean on the last lap going into the boot. Bearman was just able to hold on to 3rd from Charter with Brown 5th.

Final two saw a similar situation play out in the early stages of the race. McLean and Ellingham were working together out front with Bearman trying to chase them down. Seven laps in and Bearman had set a new fastest lap as he started to close the gap to the leaders but the race was unfortunately red flagged after an incident involving Ivan Lomliev and Sebastian Bloch. Lomliev was later disqualified with Bloch holding on to his 7th place.

It’s a shame as it stopped what could have been a great fight for victory between McLean, Ellingham and Bearman.

Josh McLean

ABkC Minimax National Championship

Despite a small grid of just four karts in Minimax there was still some good racing in both finals. Tom Adams took the win in final one as well as the fastest lap beating Lewis Gilbert by 2.66 seconds.

Gilbert did look quick in final one and showed that pace in final two with a commanding victory over Tom Adams as he took the fastest lap this time around. Finishing 3rd in both races was Kai Hunter whilst Ben Caisley was 4th

Lewis Gilbert

ABkC Rotax Junior National Championship

Saturday in Junior Rotax was all about Clayton Ravenscroft. The KR Sport driver took wins in both heats to put himself on pole position on final one. Unfortunately, things went wrong for him on Sunday. In final one Clayton had to start from the pits, from there he climbed up to 8th place but was then disqualified for having his front tyres on the wrong way around!

Up front it as a four-kart battle for the lead involving Tyler Chesterton, Bradley Barrett, Jason Lockwood and Ben Burgess. Chesterton did most of the leading despite huge pressure from behind and got his break when Barrett and Lockwood traded places twice in as many laps deep into the second half of the race. From there the Coles Racing driver took the win from Barrett and Burgess.

Final two was a bit more straight forward for Chesterton. He got a perfect start and quickly pulled away from the chasing pack eventually going on to win by 4.20 seconds! Behind there were problems for Barrett, Guy Cunnington and Klaas Kooiker who all found themselves exiting the race after just four laps.

Capitalising on this were Tommy Foster and Lewis Gilbert. Both had made good progress and once they had dropped Isaac Smith and Ben Burgess they had a pretty clear run to the flag.

Tyler Chesterton

ABkC Formula Rotax Max 177 National Championship

Three new drivers in the championship this round saw a rise in the competitiveness of the class with David Griffiths and Dan Bushell the big new additions.

Bushell certainly proved his name on Saturday by taking pole position with James Beacroft continuing his consistence by qualifying 2nd for final one. Championship leader Chris Thomas was surprisingly in 8th place.

Final one was a dramatic one to say the least! Beacroft was hassling race leader Bushell but hit terminal problems on lap ten with his chain appearing to come off. Two laps later and it was Bushell in trouble who had to pit and retire from the race. All of which opened the door for Chris Thomas to take victory.

In final two Thomas took victory over Buster Mepham, but Mepham was disqualified post-race for ‘float arms not in correct position’. From the back row Beacroft and Bushell were charging through the field and managed to finish 2nd and 3rd respectively to claw back come valuable points on Thomas who remains unbeaten in Super One finals.

Chris Thomas

MSA X30 Junior National Championship

The championship leader Louie Westover had a solid set of heats to put himself pole for final one and would be joined on the front row by Reggie Duhy.

However, final one was all about Luke Whitehead. Starting 7th on the grid he worked his way through the field and once he hit the front 14 laps in he went on take a commanding victory setting the fastest laps in the process. Dragan Pinsent was the best of the rest with Morgan Porter 3rd.

In final two both Pinsent and Porter were able to pass Whitehead in the early stages, but despite some passes the lead trio were able to break clear of Duhy and Westover behind. Clearly with a plan for the race, Whitehead eventually made his moves on Porter and Pinsent to take the lead back 12 laps in and immediately pulled a half a second lead setting a new fastest lap.

With around five laps to go it appeared Whitehead was hitting exhaust problems and in an unfortunate end to the race his exhaust detached just half a lap from the flag. The loss of power saw Pinsent and Porter come through to take 1st and 2nd whilst, despite finishing 3rd, Whitehead was disqualified from the race.

That promoted Duhy to 3rd who did well to pull away from Westover.

Dragan Pinsent

MSA X30 Senior National Championship

After a tough start to the championship this weekend had been a long time coming from Oliver Hodgson and it started with pole and two heat wins!

It’s no surprise that in final one the form continued with Hodgson breaking clear out front. Danny Keirle was able to stay within two seconds of the PFI driver at the flag and next along was Joe Turney. Another driver trying to recover from a bad start to the season! Rounding out the top five was Thomas Turner and William Pettitt.

Final two was a similar story from Hodgson’s point of view, the only difference this time was his race winning gap. It had risen from 1.73 seconds to an impressive 4.74 seconds! Part of that was certainly helped with Turney passing Keirle, Turney had to defend in the last couple of laps.

Behind Elliot Harvey finished in 4th place with Turner in 5th despite pressure from Mark Kimber. One of the stand out performers was Gus Lawrence who gained 23 places to finish 11th.
