Joshua Rat­ti­can and Tay­lor Barnard shared the spoils in the MSA Bri­tish Cadet Cham­pi­onship’s sec­ond round at a bit­terly cold Riss­ing­ton.

Bray Ken­neally and Harry Thomp­son traded the lead in the first fi­nal, with Rat­ti­can and Jonny Wilkin­son bat­tling be­hind. Af­ter Thomp­son had eased Ken­neally to one side on the penul­ti­mate lap they clashed on the fi­nal lap, al­low­ing Rat­ti­can to take up the lead and win.

While Wilkin­son and Thomp­son slowed each other, Ken­neally swooped round the out­side for a pro­vi­sional sec­ond un­til pe­nalised 10s. Thomp­son also took a penalty but a suc­cess­ful ap­peal to the stew­ards put him back to third.

Rat­ti­can was hung out to dry in the sec­ond race in favour of Thomp­son af­ter many karts crashed at the first cor­ner, in­clud­ing Ken­neally. Thomp­son clung on to the lead ahead of Ge­orgi Dim­itrov and Tyler Read un­til a sud­den rain shower had Barnard at one with the con­di­tions, cat­a­pult­ing him­self from 21st to snatch the lead.

Alex Sim­monds fol­lowed him through, while Joseph Tay­lor sal­vaged third and Thomp­son fifth, split by Reg­gie Duhy all the way from win­ning the repechage.

Jen­son But­ter­field took light­sto-flag vic­to­ries in Min­i­max. In Ju­nior Max’s first fi­nal Joe Tur­ney eased clear of Wil­liam Pet­titt, who had over­come Jonathan Hoggard, but in the sec­ond fi­nal it was Pet­titt who cleared off.

Mas­sive bat­tles in Se­nior Max re­solved in favour of Har­ri­son Thomas in the first, but he was rel­e­gated from first on the last lap of fi­nal two by Josh White.

The X30 In­ter­na­tional Qual­i­fiers had Gor­don Mutch win the first Ju­nior fi­nal, but was pipped by An­gus Fen­der in the sec­ond. Sam Marsh took the first se­nior fi­nal, then Scott Mack­rell broke away to win the sec­ond.
