LOCAL driver Andrew Nunn took first place in the Wisbech & District Kart Racing Club’s 125 two strokes seniors event.

It was a close battle with Nunn, from Marshland St James, scoring 88 points to hold off Friday Bridge’s Wayne Hall on 80 points and some way back Ben Crane in third place with 34 points.

There were only 54 karts in action, the lowest turnout for a WDKRC grass meeting in recent memory on a dry and hard track.

Despite the track conditions outstanding on the day was young Alex Ward in the 70cc juniors, who was the only driver on the day to amass a maximum 100 points handling the track conditions brilliantly. Second place went to Walpole Highway’s Frankie Wright who improves with every meeting and third spot went to Outwell’s 2012 British Champion Maddie Williams.

The 90cc juniors saw a winning return to form for Charlotte Gilbert with 88 points. Charlotte was pushed all the way by second placed Sam Russell (Marshland St James) with 84 points and Walpole Highway’s Henry Laws was third on 78 points.

The 125 4 stroke juniors was won by British champion Luke Huggins with Outwell’s Joshua Smith third with 76 points.

The 125 4 stroke seniors went to current form and Kevin Jackson finished the day with an extremely impressive 96 points for top podium spot.

The 250 4 strokes saw the Fishers, James and Karl battle it out for the top two spots in this class, finishing with 88 and 80 points respectively.

The 250 open class was won by Ian Laws with 76 points over second placed Fred Hornigold on 70 points.
