THE Lucindale Karting Club was able to work the gods, get all the planets aligned and hold the BeeLine Car and Truck Wash meeting.
With the greatest appreciation we thank Scott Rayner and Tim Ludwig for all their efforts on Saturday with track maintenance and preparation in readiness for Sunday.
Another tickle up of the track on Sunday morning from Trevor Bull and we were good to go and get dirty. With about 60 karts nominated the rookies took the track showing just how far they have come in racing with their skill and enthusiasm.
Newcomer to the sport Jack Michaelson showed determination and speed taking out the day in front of Ned Skeer and his brother Matthew Michaelson. With this class it is not fair to mention the top three without the others as the standard of racing was of high quality. Following the top three place getters were David East, Sophie Clifton, Kaleb Moutlen, Aislin McGrath and Kate Skeer in her first race ever, an awesome job done by all in the rookies.
KT Heavy class was up next with plenty of experience taking to the track.
James Rodda led the way showing Chelsea Bull it's all about the speed and "reliability", Jeff "Milky" Gowling showed good speed but once again "reliability" proved an issue.
Amy Rayner was on top of her game, showing the way around the track with just too much pace and Nathan Black "Mr Consistent" took out second with Matty Kahl coming home with third in the KT Lights class. The KT Ladies proved good racing chasing the KT Light class with plenty of overtaking opportunities being taken. Tamika Sewell showed Melinda Ludwig that "to finish first, first you must finish" with Amanda Cull a close third and Olivia Rayner chasing hard in fourth. 125cc and KT Twins classes were joined together with the mighty twins chasing down the smaller 125cc.
Rob Nottle and Chris Redden from Bordertown proved too good finishing in front of Lucindale's Louis Bull. Jordan Rayner, loving the challenge chasing hard in the mighty twin and obviously not doing too bad, finished the day with maximum points and a good display of driving ability. Jeff Gowling, with a lot more "consistency" in the mighty twin than the single, came home with second and Darren Wagner brought home third.
Rob Black and Shane Sewell raced fast and hard all day with points tied at the end but Rob Black won on a count back with Pete Hocking taking third.
Mark Clifton may need more driving time as finishing just didn't seem an option.
J Junior Open saw a massive field of 11 with plenty of fast talent in the field; it was anyone's day right to the end.
Joshy Bull proved too good once again leading the final from start to finish closely chased by Mitchell Ludwig and third Brad Gartner. Special mention went out to Ebony Moulton who raced hard and fast all day coming in fourth place. KT Medium class were last out with Louis Bull having a much better day than he did in the the 125cc, taking home first place. Jordan Rayner was unlucky but still managed to take second place with Josh Cull from Bordertown in third.
Congratulations to all competitors and once again thank you to our sponsors BeeLine Car and Truck Wash and to all volunteers who make these race meetings run smoothly.
Our next race meeting will be sponsored by Envirogen Industrial on August 31.
