Good results at grass kart champs
A large number of South Canterbury Family Kart Club members attended the New Zealand Grass Kart Championships in Christchurch at Easter.
Club secretary Angela Rae said it was an action packed weekend with two days racing, and each grade contesting six races over a five lap course.
Rae said the women’s 0-250cc saw South Canterbury’s Kate Brown dominate.
The midget grade provided some extremely tight racing and Ashton Trumper, in his first year of racing, won the title.
The intermediate grade was hotly contested with Kane Botherway winning the title with fellow South Cantabrian Jacob Cunniffe fourth.
Rae said in the second year of the newly formed Super Kart Grade saw an increase in competitors and it was dominated by Ben McLaren. She said Nathan Brown took out second followed by Nathan Reid, Shane Coskerie, Jason Todd, and Kyle Robertson.
The final race was the cham- pions of champions race where the winners of each senior grade, excluding the super karts, went head-to-head. South Canterbury’s Jordan Rae was second race followed by Kate Brown.
In other results, Jordan Trumper won the junior grade, while Jordan Rae also won the 206/255cc Water Cooled/Power ported 2 stroke grade.
