South Canterbury Herald - - SPORT - MARK QUINLIVAN

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.
