Round 2, 30th March 2014
Blue skies and big grids were the order of the day for Round 2 of the Dunkeswell Kart Racing Club 2014 Championship.
The finals were all cued up to provide some excellent racing and they didn’t disappoint. In the Libre Cadet class, it was Ethan Ling and Shay Keogh who led the way quickly putting a clear gap between them and the chasing pack. Ling’s Honda edged the IAME of Keogh to take the win by 1.5s with Alex Eades and Charlie Knight rounding off the top three for Honda with Luke Francis and Toby McDonald doing the same for the IAME class.
Tommy Foster again dominated the MiniMax final but in the battle of the girls it was Paige Holden who edged Jemima Hepworth to the second step of the podium in a close race.
Peter Griffin was quick off the line in the Junior Max final and managed to keep Izaac Channing behind him until lap 8 when Channing slipped past and managed to hold on to take the win by 0.07s from Griffin. Brandon Patrick was 3rd, some 5s adrift.
The Senior Max final was temporarily run under the Battenburg when Leon Hilliard took himself out at Hanger. At the restart, Stew Baker was jumped at the restart by James Johnson who held on to take the win. Baker was 2nd and Josh Gray rounded off the top three.
Colin Davis made it four from four in the 177 class with Darren Lane finishing a good day in 2nd and Julian Howell in 3rd.
The Gearbox boys were last up and a struggling Beal handed the win to Goodliffe after he pulled off the circuit three times to sort a recurring problem, but still managed to finish the race.
