New­com­ers bat­tle it out in club’s fourth round

Pilbara News - - Sport - Alec Nor­man

The smell of two stroke was once again in the air at the Kar­ratha Kart Club on Satur­day night for round four of the club cham­pi­onships.

The club wel­comed three new mem­bers for their first race meet: Jack and Shayne South­wood in the pro cadets and Joanne Church­man in the north west light class.

The pro cadet class (aged 7-12 years) was well rep­re­sented with nine en­trants.

Rac­ing was clean but well fought over the four races, with top three fin­ish­ers Lin­coln Drew, Tris­tan Grey and Con­nor Grey bat­tling it out all night.

The north west light and heavy se­nior classes were com­bined for the night.

Race one ended in con­tro­versy where a tech­ni­cal glitch saw the top four pull into the pits with one lap re­main­ing, hand­ing vic­tory to the elated new­comer, Church­man.

Rac­ing in the TaG 125 class didn’t dis­ap­point with noth­ing sep­a­rat­ing the field all night.

Brad Wilde took the over­all win and Chris Smith’s DNF in race two didn’t hin­der him much, fin­ish­ing sec­ond ahead of Alec Nor­man.
