Racing Update 7/12/11

Gold star round two at Taranaki proved to be an exciting and challenging weekend. With hot sunshine baking us all on Saturday it was a shock to find showers coming through in the morning but was all as the weather man had predicted. This made things very interesting as we had a mixture of a wet and dry track in the morning with threatening rain in the afternoon making things challenging for the drivers and the mechanics. However, the racing spectacle on display was very exciting with close racing through all the fields. Notably in Juniors, a long winded battle throughout the day between the Taranaki local golden boy Matthew Podjersky and our own Josh Drysdale from Manawatu was jam packed with excitement and produced a great atmosphere as the crowd cheered as each took the advantage during the races, but glory was taken in the end by Josh coming out as the victor. Also, the cadet class produced some excellent racing and was met with a strong Manawatu contingent, with the end results going in our favour with Manawatu monopolising the top steps of the podium and no one outside the top 10: Kaleb Ngatoa 1st, Tom Greig 2nd, Callum Crawley 3rd, Nick Evans 7th, Jackson Rooney 9th, and Riley Jack 10th.

Congratulations to Jacob Cranston, for winning the Junior
Restricted class at the North Island Championships on Labour Weekend. Whilst watching the grueling battle unfolding in front of him throughout the entire race, Jacob patiently waited for the right moment to let his Kiwi Kart Tiger Lynx pounce, and in the closing laps his patience proved fruitful as he went from 3rd to 1st in one corner and put his head down never to be caught again. Well done Jacob, an awesome drive!!
