Central Coast Speedway Karts, Round 6

press release

Club Round 6 of the Central Coast Speedway Kart Club was run on Sunday 16th August at the Gosford Kart Speedway, Gosford Showground. With the weather finally in our favour, we had a great days racing, with the KT Modified class producing some of the closest and best racing of the day.

In the Midget class, James Peters took out the day with 3 race wins, with John Gillespie taking out second and Kaidon Brown third. Kyle Angel didn't figure in the points this meeting due to several DNF's. The Rookies numbers were down, so they combined and ran with the Midgets, with Kris Johnson winning the day over Amy Shute. 

In the Juniors, Michael Saller ended up winning the day with two heat wins, followed closely by Reagan Angel, and then Ayden Elliott.

The Clubman Light class had more new drivers, and one of those Mitch Brien, was the stand-out of the day, taking out the 3 race wins to claim the days honours. Greg Martin took second place with some consistent places, just edging out Nathan Bailey for third. Sharon Gillespie just missed out by one point on a trophy taking out fourth.

Our Clubman Ladies class continues to impress, with Sharon Gillespie winning all races, even after missing the restart in the feature race! Kate Johnson then had to settle for second's all day, with Karlie Moller taking out third and her first podium place.

Clubman Heavies was another competitive class, with Grant Lahiff winning, followed closely by Steven O'Meley and Matt Bond. The results may have been a bit closer if there weren't so many DNF's in the feature race.

The Clubman Over 40 class was only small with Matt Bond taking the days honours, out classing Stuart Bond again in second, and Michael Lahiff following up in third. Michael managed to finish all his remaining races after loosing one of his rear wheels in the first heat.

Our KT Modified class was the largest class of the day, with a good mix of drivers. Les Green almost had a clean sweep by winning the 3 heats, but unfortunately crashed out in the feature race, which was eventually won by Luke Storey. Les still managed to hang on to first place for the day, followed by James Robertson who had some good placings as well. Wayne Baines ended up taking third, after engine troubles in the first race forced his retirement.
