Layton recovers to top Superkart order
MSA British Superkart Championship leader Jack Layton extended his gap at the top of the points despite a difficult weekend at Snetterton.
The Parker Motorsport driver suffered a blown fuse in qualifying and had to start at the back of the 37-kart grid for the opener.
He charged through the field, breaking the lap record in the process, and took the lead on the penultimate lap.
“That’ll do,” he said. “It was five abreast into Riches at the start of the race but I had to be careful and gradually picked them off.”
He then suffered an overfilled fuel tank in race two that was spraying petrol onto his visor in the early stages making it difficult to see properly. He briefly lost the lead to James O’reilly but once the fuel level dropped he was able to regain the lead and pull away to secure his second victory.
He was unable to make it a hat-trick in the final race when a throttle cable problem forced him into retirement.
