Karting stars toast their titles after action-packed British Championships
MORE than 70 karts took to the track at Manea as junior and senior racers battled to become British Grass Karting Champions.
Wisbech and District Kart Racing Club hosted the British Championships last Sunday, following a fun day on the Saturday.
The heats were marred by a nasty collision which forced Jamie Chapman to retire through injury.
But the finals proceeded in the afternoon, with close races and shock results keeping the crowd entertained.
A rear tyre blowout robbed Ashley Hornigold of victory in the 250 four-stroke class final, with Craig Jackson speeding past to claim the title.
Maddie Williams pipped Beth Brooker and Alex Ward to the 70cc prize while Henry Laws triumphed in the 90cc category.
The hotly contested junior 125 four-stroke final saw four racers fail to finish, including March’s Harry Hensby and Upwell’s Joshua Smith. Luke Huggins came from fifth in the grid to take the title.
