Club News: Wet and Wild Kart Action at Lombardy Sunday

It was splishing, splashing and spinning at the Eastern Ontario Karting Championships races in Smiths Falls on Sunday, August 21. Downpours provided plenty of excitement as drivers took to the Lombardy Fair Grounds track in the rain and slid their way through the final round of races for the season.

In the Novice Light Class, age 7 to 11, Emma Jean Lalonde of Battersea, Ontario proved unbeatable in the wet by winning both her heat races and the feature. Her brother, Jake Lalonde came second. Linkin Stevens of Perth, Ontario was third.

Steven’s brother, Zander also won his two morning heats and the afternoon feature in the Novice Class. Denver Craig of Carp, Ontario was second; Jake McNeely from Kinburn, Ontario came third.

In a large field of Juniors, age 10-15, Ryan Armstrong of Munster, Ontario drove smoothly to finish first with Kingston’s Ontario Hector Baker second and Emily Conty third.

Mike Oakley of Perth, Ontario survived a spin-filled Spec Class to win the feature race ahead of Trevor Ceasar and Todd Ceasar.

In the Senior Class, Andy Oakley of Perth, Ontario proved to be the rain master. He stayed in front all the way to the win in the feature followed by Anthony Conty and Rob Microys

That wraps up the 10-race season this year for the Lombardy Karting Association. An annual awards banquet will be held in Smiths Falls, Ontario on October 22.
