Wet Weather Hits Launceston Kart Club Titles

Launceston Kart Club - Wyllie Tiles Carpet Call Club Titles, September 23rd 2012


In some of the worst conditions seen at the Launceston Kart Club for many years’ competitors still battled it out for the Club Title sponsored by Wyllie Tiles Carpet Call.

The day started out with a mainly dry track for qualifying, however two torrential downpours during the day meant that all pre finals and finals were held on a track that resembled a river on some occasions.

Cadets again produced some very tight racing between Brock Lamont and Lachie Dalton. Lamont held on for victory from Dalton and rounding out the podium was the fast improving William Reeve, who has just come off his P-plate.

Rookies was won by Tayla Heath, however she had to battle hard against both the weather and Hobart’s Zevie Eisentraut who took it right up to Heath in the heats. In the end Heath won the final from Eisentraut and Andrew Lee.

In JNL, Gemma Wyllie showed the boys how to drive in both dry and wet conditions. Wyllie won both heats, pre final and Final in a dominating display. In the final, Brodie Evans took right up the Wyllie but could not knock her off the top step of the podium. Young Cameron Kuc, who had a great tussle with Wade Mclean during the closing laps, filled the final step on the podium.

JNH was won by Morgan Jakobovski who also won all four races on the day. Jarius Holmes was the best of the rest.

The combined SNL & SNH class was a battle of four all day with Jay Bailey taking the honours in Light from Kelsey Sapwell and Stuart Wells. SNH was dominated by Jamie Bricknell who raced wheel to wheel with Light all day and won heat 2 outright. Best of the remaining Heavies were Michael Vaughn and James Pinfold. A notable absentee from the wet races was Launceston Jonathan Males who elected to keep dry.

Clubman Light was another class dominated by one driver. Nathan Zuj showed his younger rivals what experience really means winning four from four. Alastair Lee and Brodie Appleby were both unable to stay on track in the wet to challenge Zuj in the final. Dillon Van Galen showed some great wet weather driving to secure second from Jobe Sims.

Clubman Heavy became a Troy Stone benefit after a number of his rivals elected to pack up early. Stone won the final from Josh Musket and Brodey Lovett, who was making his senior debut.

TAG Restricted Light was won by David Sherriff from Renee Chettle with the remaining drivers unable to finish in the wet conditions.

TAG Restricted Heavy saw Jason Close take top spot on the podium from Mathew Clark and Jeremy Green.

The TAG 125 final was started on a drying track with Steven Wrigley opting for slicks, but this went a bit pear-shaped when rain started to fall only two laps in. Jake Rice, who had won all day, chose the wets and won the final from Matthew Distill and Jade Waddington.

Over 40’s was again dominated by Michael Vaughan, showing his rivals no compassion by winning all four races. In the final Vaughan beat home Tim Hinds and Stephen Sapwell.

Scott Wrigley in Over 40’s Super Heavy did a similar job by simply dominating the class. Stuart Lee came home in second from Alistair Fairley in the wettest race of the day.
