their second club race of the season on June 7. The event was held at East Coast Karting, located just outside of Moncton, New Brunswick. All of the classes are four-stroke, run with the Briggs & Stratton LO206 engine. Briggs racing is rapidly growing throughout the karting world and definitely has made a huge impact in the Maritimes, where 2-stroke is a distant memory. CKRA consists of three classes, Novice Briggs, Junior Briggs, and Senior Briggs as well as a temporary class for our newer (racing wise and age wise) drivers, Rookie novice.

Rookie novice was a fun-filled field with two fresh faces! Chloe Carnahan and Mia Kants put their skills to the test and focused on improving in every race! These two young aspiring drivers are well on their way to moving into the general Novice class where they will compete with even tougher competition. Watch out, this girl power will be flying by the finish line in no time!

The competition was fierce in the Novice division, with Isla Kants (183), Issac Teed (172), Fraser Murray (104), and Eric Rose (123) battling it out the entire day. Only minor tenths separated their speed. Kants captured first place in both heat one as well as the feature race with Teed close behind, taking back-to-back wins in heat two and three. Fraser Murray, known in the Junior Briggs division at Coupe du Quebec wasn’t far behind the speedy pair taking a respectable fourth, second, and two thirds. Eric Rose keeps improving every time he sets tire on the track; he had many great battles with the pack managing to capture two thirds and two fourths.

The Junior Briggs class had a whopping eight drivers, the biggest class in the club (by maritime standards, that’s a large field). There were many quick karts which made for very tight racing. Justin Beers (603, CRG) captured the win in three out of four races including the feature. Stephen Oliver (626,CRG) had taken the checkers in heat two, but unexpectedly fell back to last in the third heat due to a mechanical failure, courtesy to the beautiful/horrid and sometimes inevitable thing we call contact racing. I fell victim to the same issue in the feature and was unable to complete the race as my front left spindle was no longer one with my kart. Oliver placed second in the feature, making his way up from sixth on the start with. Kelsey Hann (607,CRG) had an impressive day with speedy lap times, managing to grab second, fourth, sixth, third and a comfortable fourth position to start in the feature. K.Hann grabbed a hard-fought and well deserved third position on the podium. I (614,CRG) started off the day with a third, followed by fifth and then second. Starting second in the feature, I claimed that position until a few laps in, then the king pin decided to take a hike. Off went my tire and spindle, identical to Oliver’s incident as well as J.Kennedy in Senior Briggs. Makenna Hann (674, CRG), Ben Mundle (616,CRG), Morgan Harnish (610,CRG), and Eric Rose (624,MBA) – all new additions to the Junior class this year battled it out intensely the entire day.

The Senior Briggs class was a treat to watch. With very responsible and experienced drivers, the class of six were at a constant switch-up in positions. Aaron Kennedy (771,CRG) claimed three out of four wins in heat one and three as well as the feature. A.Kennedy’s younger brother, Jordan Kennedy (711, MBA) wasn’t far behind, taking second, second, fourth and an impressive third in the feature. Jared Meade (743,MBA), the third tier of the top-3 weave, finished off the day remaining in constant top-3 with third, first, second and second. Brett Miller (724,CRG) Jarrett Leach (747,CRG) and Robert Conrad (755,CRG) we’re laying down impressive times and showing some impressive moves as well.
