Clean sweep on the track

LISMORE Kart Club has one event left on the calendar after a busy round of competition at the weekend.

Several drivers took out their division by winning four consecutive races on Sunday.

The future champions Cadet 9 class (7-9 years) had a good field with 11 entries.

Jakob Scott took out the division, winning all four of his races, and was followed by Beau Bromhead and Braith Santin.

First-time competitor Ethan Keith was rewarded with an encouragement award for his standard of driving during the meeting.

In the Cadet 12 class (9-12 years), the field was somewhat depleted with only two drivers at the meeting - but they still had to drive hard for their positions, with Zane Wilhelm taking the win with four starts from Nathaniel Watts.

"The driving was a decent standard and the meeting went off without any major incidents,” club president Barry Fisher said.

In the KA4 class both the light and heavy were combined to enlarge the field and the racing was very entertaining.

The winner was Jack Porter, with Sam Seccombe and Thomas Gallagher rounding out the top three.

In the heavy group, a clean sweep with four wins saw William Seccombe finish ahead of Ryan Newell.

Some of the best racing came from the KA4 senior group, with the drivers providing plenty of entertainment.

With perfect results of four starts for four wins Jordan Kingham showed them how it was done, with brothers Curt and Dmitri Nommensen finishing second and third.

The biggest field on the day was the Sportsman Light class with 13 entrants.

A perfect score went to Jake Wheeler, while second place went to Michael Slade who drove well with three seconds and then had mechanical problems in the final but still managed to place ahead of Mark Frost

A KA3 driver group was run within this sector, with Hamish Turner awarded first place.

Sportsman heavy saw some great racing with Clinton Hickling taking out first place from newcomer Rhys Foster and Luke Barber and Peter McRae sharing third.

The final meeting of the season is set down for December 4 and will include racing and some featured classes followed by the presentation of 2016 club champions awards.
