Shenington Kart Race Report 20 March 2016
With the entry a little bit lower than usual due to the clashing Super One there was lots of track time for all the drivers. The Cadet grids were the largest but it was good to see how the Junior X30 grid continues to grow, but is it at the expense of Rotax Mini and Junior? We would like to encourage all Rotax drivers to enter and have been promised some special initiatives to help – suggestions please. And the weather stayed dry all through the weekend, albeit a bit chilly. So it was the final round of the Winter 100 championship, congratulations to all the new Shenington champions.
Eddie Mawle enjoyed a sterling victory in TKM Clubman slicing past Daniel Mense at the end of the penultimate lap. James Cayzer had led the pack away but faded into retirement as David Turton leapfrogged into the lead. Despite pulling out a cushion on the battling Mawle and Mense he too failed to finish. Shenington’s André Marot finished fourth whilst Mense took the title. Max Goldsmith has moved up to the TKM Extreme class this year and came out on top of a big battle with Will Lakin only to be excluded when his scrutineering card numbers did not match the tyres that were fitted. That left Lakin winning over Chris Goffin, the latter taking the Winter title, well done. Will Stowell, the former KF driver in Germany, had been practicing his starts in the 125 gearbox KZ UK and slotted in behind leader Adam Glear at the start but a fading clutch led to his retirement. Dan Kelly took up the challenge on Glear as Hannah Lang fell behind Joe Charlton. Kelly’s second was good enough for the title. In a 250 National race of attrition Jack Love led all the way, Aaron Powell forced to give up second with a seized engine, leaving Dean Hale in that position. Local driver Matthew Graham thundered through the pack from his grid 13 starting position after failing to finish the first heat. Reaching the front he embarked into a fierce fight with Angus Fender, but kept ahead for the win. Robert Welham had briefly led but failed to finish. Coming fourth after a heat penalty was enough to give Billy Mattock the Winter 100 title. Thin grids on Junior Max, Senior Max and Senior X30 had Ethan Ling, Will Shaw and Jack Wright respectively as winners. MiniMax was slightly more popular where Luke Richardson pulled out 6s on Morgan Fennymore and Jonathan Lawrence. Joshua Sherriff and James Whitaker traded the Junior TKM lead energetically with Sherriff just managing to regain the front on the last corner. A slightly disgruntled Whitaker stayed ahead of Archie Albone and Banbury’s William Layton, Sherriff becoming the Winter Series champion. As usual the biggest grids were in the Cadet classes. In Honda Cadet Coskun Irfan and Theo Micouris broke away from the others after Daniel Guinchard fell well back and Maurice Henry consequently lost touch with the leading pair. Thomas Mills came up to challenge and pass Henry whilst initial fifth placed Louis Harvey was found to be under the class weight and excluded. Micouris had enough in hand to take the title. In the 2-stroke IAME Cadet Jamie Mead leapfrogged Connor Kearney and Lorenzo Kordal for the lead but was then challenged by Charlie Typoldo-Cole. That pair diced hard to the end, Mead taking the win by a whisker, Jack Williams a further tenth of a second behind. Kordal had succumbed to Coskun Irfan for fourth and Kearney had fallen back to seventh, but Mead took the championship title.
