Newcastle Club Championship, Round 2

by Thomas Childs

Newcastle Kart Racing Club held its second round of the Club Championship on Sunday the 4th February. It was an overcast day to start with and we had a couple of light showers which kept all the karters on their toes, but cleared up to be a sunny day.

All the competitors raced a computer grid format for heats 1 and 2, then combined points from heats 1 and 2 for heat 3, then finishing place from heat 3 was the starting position for the final, with final only counts. It saw a lot of passing and different people at the front of the field.
