AMS driv­ers pass tough track test

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - KART­ING

ON Satur­day AMS (All Hal­lows and Mac­cles­field Schools) Kart Club were in Lin­colnshire at Ful­beck Kart Rac­ing track.

This track is no­to­ri­ous for its un­for­giv­ing kerbs and un­pre­dictable track sur­face, and with the wet weather set­ting in very early it proved a real test of the young driv­ers’ skills.

Three of the four sched­uled race heats were run on wets but as the late sun­shine broke through there was time for the fi­nal heat to be a fran­tic dash in the drier weather.

Eight-year-old Jack Car­less se­cured the cadet of the day trophy with another eight-year-old, Wil­liam Cook, close be­hind.

In Class 11, Dan Wool­ley, 13, was fifth and just missed out on a trophy.

Jor­dan Brown re­ceived the third-place trophy in his class 15 Ro­tax which was a per­sonal best for him.

And with Corey O’Con­nor bring­ing his class eight high-pow­ered kart home in first place it capped a suc­cess­ful day for AMS.
