Jmax wasn’t without its challenges with the highlight being Kiwi driver Ryan Wood putting in a superb drive in the final to finish in 5th place. Jaden Ransley & Bailey Sagaidak kept up the fight in what was a challenging weekend for them both. Sadly Bailey Douglas wasn’t able to show his true pace becoming involved in a number of on track incidents resulting in him taking no further part in the weekend.
Jack Westbury secured in 2nd place in Mini Max class showing a never-give-up attitude all weekend. Jack was the fastest kart on track in the majority of the sessions showing he has the speed to beat the best of them.
