Kev The Noise Davies Commentary was lucky enough to get to call the Canberra Kart Club’s championship round two meeting on the weekend at Circuit mark Webber. There was great racing by all in between the RKA races and showed how good the circuit is with the new section now added.

18 Rookies took to the track and it was strong performance from Boston Gillanders in the #8 machine finishing just behind Christian Faro in the AF Civil ultimate kart entry. Third place went to Mitchell Love but he just couldn’t stay with the pace set by the front two. Eventually that battle ended up with the Jascott Civil Pty Ltd entry of Kobe McInerney finishing second to the winner Ayrton Dalmaso in his Brodburger #12 kart.
A big crash in the Rookies saw the final come to an early end on lap 7, but I’m happy to report the Pulse Tuning entry of Cooper Fsh, Joel Gahan, George Miles were all declared ok after the incident.
This class saw newcomer Kyle Parry, son of Patrick, in his Pulse Tuning entry finish 3rd. The #64 of Caleb Hefren was fast all weekend and he used that speed to grab second; only Luke Angilley was quick enough to beat him and he did so by some 4.403 seconds!
This class was combined with the Heavy so made for some interesting race battles. In Heavy though, Lewis D’amore came home third behind the Kerden Haulage entry of Addison Radburn. Taking the win was the #4 Harris Carpentry Service entry of Jaxon Barrington.
This one saw Casandra Puckle finishing 5th with her very own cheer squad getting behind her. Fourth was John Wells, then the podium positions finished with Zachary Warren coming home third, James Petrovski brought the #32 kart home In second and the win went to Sharleece Coan.

Gaps opened up everywhere in this one, the class being combined with the Restricted Heavies. The #15 kart of Lachlan Mineef grabbed 3rd behind Mathew Algie. The winner on the day though was Cooper Dupond who looked unstoppable all weekend long.

P-plater Luke Nguyen had a fabulous race meeting to finish 3rd, just beating Christopher Twigg to the podium. Second place went to Matthew Donnelly, but leading all the way and winning by 4.678 seconds was Matthew Wilson in his #4 machine.
Brendan Scorgie & Michael Allen had a brilliant battle with Mathew Nipperess but ultimately it probably cost them the chance to fight for the podium. Third and bottom step of the podium went to Tahn Eather, in second place a few seconds up the road was Coire Donnelly, and winning after a great final was the #74 Alexander Waters by just 0.106 of a second!
Young Hugh Schweicker had a blast at Canberra and finished in 5th place while fourth went to Aiden McCabe. The first of the podium positions went to Riley Bates finishing less than 0.3 of a second behind Carter Lamperd in a great battle, but winning by a huge 6.477 seconds was young Oscar Haddon.
The last race of the weekend was for Junior Performance and they didn’t disappoint – it was an epic battle that had everything from drama to excitement, thrills and spills including Caleb Hefren losing a wheel and spinning around what looked like about 3 times!
Finishing in 3rd place in this one was girl racer Tahnee Blair while some way up the road was eventual second place finisher Joshua Hart. But no one was a match for the skill and speed of Dominic Magliarachi.
