Action hots up in penultimate round of karting championship

THIS Saturday, September 11, sees Ulster Cup kart racing action at Nutts Corner Circuit when the provinces drivers tackle the penultimate round of the tough Ulster Cup series.

With no class yet having clear run away leaders the Ulster Karting Club promoted meeting is sure to be close as drivers really start to consolidate their positions or push for those extra but all important points when it comes to dropped score time at the end of October.

The recent action though was at Irelands largest karting event at the circuit when drivers from across the country, and further afield, took on the Precision Kart Team supported Irish Kart Grand Prix. Star guest driver was World Intercontinental Rally Champion Kris Meeke who contended the 250cc National class for a ‘relaxation’ away from his busy world championship regime.

The Mini Max class is always tough and competitive and it will be no different this Saturday. At the GP meeting Jamie Grant and Scott Finlay battled it out in an intense final. In the end though Grant surged through to take second with Finlay taking a comfortable third.

Dromore's Ross Graham also drove well throughout to take a sixth place. Neil Allen came home a creditable ninth in his first GP meeting.

With the Superkarts in action again this Saturday as one of the highlights of the day then it will be an action packed day all round.

Racing gets underway at 11am with a packed schedule comprising three heats and finals.
