North Shore Club Series, Round 2Tweet
For some time NSKC has not run a 2 day race meeting on a normal club day. In an effort to reward the members for staying with the club over the last year NSKC decided to offer a 2 day race meeting. This would give the members and guests extra laps, shorter day and better value for money.
On Saturday, roughly 120 karters were greeted with a gorgeous day and 9 classes would be hitting the track.
Big fields in the popular TaG Restricted classes turned up and it was TaG R light that hit the track first.
TaG R Light :
Kyle Sandona the veteran of the TaG Restricted class once again took the win and the gossop around the pits is that after some 3 years in TaG R he will soon be making the move to TaG Open. Although the rest of the field has made ground on him most notably George Al Hazouri.
Junior Nat Heavy :
Kosmic Racing NSW driver Dimitri Agathos put in a dominant display taking all before him in JNH winning the final be over 4 seconds to a muched improved Mitch Kennedy.
Senior National and O40' National :
Nail biting stuff in this race with Harris getting the win over Pritchard Sarah Colling returned to racing and beat her brother home to grab 3rd.
1st : IAIN THORNTON 0:48.582
The over 40 boys ran with the Senior National field with Thornton getting home over the ever present Gentle, Piper grabbed a very well deserved 3rd.
TaG Restricted Heavy :
Beau Levy drove a great race in the final and held off a very fast Wayne Bower, Matich claimed 3rd in a solid effort. The rumor around the pits is Bower will soon make the jump to TaG open. The club would like to extend our well wishes to Jason Rampling who was involved in a nasty crash... Get well soon Jason!
Clubman Heavy :
Craig Thornton stood on the top step in clubman for the first time since making the move from the Senior National class he was kept honest by Roffey the 2 of them fighting all the way till the flag. Reynolds was there to pick up the pieces had they come together but he had to wait until after the flag!
Clubman Super Heavy :
The bigger boys ran with Clubman Heavy and Piper pushed very hard to finish up in 7th overall! And first in the super heavy catagory. Cooper was right behind him but ran out of laps to finish the job.
Sportsman light/heavy :
Cogger was a dominant force in Sprotsman light smashing the opposition.
1st : Nigel STONES 0:43.018
Stones won a gripping sportsman heavy race with Brunker and Mannion snapping at his heels. The sportsman class continues to grow and by the sound of the rumor mill will grow even bigger with some of the Restricted drivers finally ready to make the jump into the big time.
Sunday would see more juniors roll up but the value for money continued with 3 heats pre final and finals of 16 laps!
Junior Clubman ;
Everyone was expecting to watch the battle of the two CIK junior stars Kosmics Agathos and CRG's Coleman but Agathos put it on pole with a smoking time of 0:42.736 and was never headed again winning every race his only blemish was not winning the start in 2 of the races but he was in first by the end of the first lap. Coleman was not slow either grabbing second from Tony Karts Sandrone. In a sign of times ahead all 3 boys would of been at the very front of the senior Clubman light.
17 Cadets rolled around for the final and these kids sure no how to put on a show. Some of the CIK team bosses where there to watch the next generation of star and from what this reporter hears the phone will be ringing for a few of these kids very soon. Lichtenberger drove with great maturaty to take the win ahead of the very fast Worton (some say he is the next Hamilton) Heard was right there and was also very fast. It must be said that the whole field drove very very well and these kids can hold there heads up very high. Some of the seniors could learn a lesson from them.
Junior Nat Light :
This was a very tight race Ojeda and Agathos fighting to the death with Ojeda getting the win by a nose cone.
Clubman Light :
Eldridge won a some what sombre final after a day of red flags decimated the field Our thoughts go out to Julian CHRETIEN who is recovering in Hospital after a sickening crash with Daniel Holihan that saw both drivers retire.
More future stars had the talent scouts out with note pads at the ready and what they saw was spectacular Brewczynski and Attard seperated by a mere 0.001 over the line .. Just amazing stuff once again these young stars continue to impress.
We look forward now to Round 3 ....Full results are on AKA CM:s - Saturday's classes HERE, Sunday's HERE.
