Club News: Great Racing Action in Round #8 at Lombardy Karting Association
Eastern Ontario’s Lombardy Karting Association saw plenty of wheel-to-wheel excitement July 24 as 30 racers competed in five classes. The morning qualifying races and the afternoon features were run with a double chicane, producing tight racing on the multi-configuration karting track.
In the Novice Light 14-lap feature, Harry Kirton edged Emma Jean Lalonde by 13 hundreds of a second for his first win of the season. Linkin Stevens was third, a half second behind.
In Novice, Ryan Baker overcame his off-roading in qualifying to win the feature over Zander Stevens and Jake McNeely.
The Junior races saw Ryan Armstrong win both qualifying races and the feature but second place Hector Baker set the fastest lap on the 850-metre track at 80.473 kph. Alexis Oakley was third.
The Spec Racer Class Feature was another close one with 0.285 of a second separating the first three, won by Colin Caswell, followed by Trevor Ceaser and Todd Ceaser.
Shane Findley came from behind to win the Senior Class after crashing out of the Second Heat Race. Findley borrowed parts from other entrants to rebuild his kart during the lunch break and score the win. Andy Oakley came second ahead of Tyson Stevens.
The next race at the Smiths Falls, Ontario track is August 7 and is a double championship point race, promising a full field and loads of action.
