Lucky Final For Hutton
After what can only be described as a character building weekend, 15 year old King’s College student Arie Hutton was in the right place at the right time to inherit the win of the final race at Round 4 of the Mi Sedaap ProKart Series held at the Hamilton Kart Club circuit on 29 August.
Arie’s note book:
We worked flat out to swap the Vortex for the TM. This required a change of loom plus cooling system so it was a bit of a rush to get out for the wet prefinal. From grid 8 I lost a couple of positions at the start finding the tune and getting the engine up to temperature, but improved to finish 5th. The TM felt strong despite a well used piston and not having been on the kart since the North Island Champs last year.
I made a good start to the final and after a bit of place swapping made it to second by lap 9. Brad had cleared out in front, however I had a close race long battle with Aarron Marr. We had a wet chassis set up on slicks which made my Super Freight EVR a bit unstable in the corners. With three laps to go we caught up to Brad who had a problem with his throttle (broken cable) so it was with a bit of luck we were first to the chequered flag this time.”
