Karters back on track

It was a successful day in the Lakes for Tarporley Karting Team.

The latest National Schools Karting event took place at the Rowrah Race Circuit in Cumbria over the weekend of 16/17th April.

In Class 1 Cadet, where the youngest drivers compete, TKT fielded two entrants and from a field of six Harvey Cole was just pipped at the post, finishing 2nd just a point behind the winner. Although our other driver in this class, Daniel Kenny, finished last he continues to improve and is building his confidence race by race.

In Class 7 TKM, where competitors compete in Karts with 100cc engines, all 6 TKT drivers finished in the top 10. Well done to Lee Whittingham who came 1st, closely followed by James Mills in 2nd, Kurt Roberts in 3rd, Theo Hesketh in 4th, Reece Griffiths in 5th and Amy Duke in 8th. Reece also picked up the Class 7 (158kg) trophy on the day.

In Class 14 (Modified TKM & Raket) TKT fielded 4 of the 8 entrants, and it was another 1st place for Sam Bailey-Saltmarsh, with Jon Daniels in 2nd, Katie Pritchard in 4th and Kian Ray in 7th place.

Finally in Class 15 Rotax, TKT fielded 3 drivers in a field of 10 entrants, congratulations to Tom Taylor who came 3rd, Connor Bailey who was 4th and to novice entrant Jake Bailey-Saltmarsh who was 9th.
