Rain just enough to be good for racing

KARTING by Rockin’ Robin

Eastland Kart Cub held its second points meeting of the season on Sunday.

After two rounds of racing, the showers came.

While members had a lunch break, the rain stopped and it was found the moisture had contributed to a good racing surface.

At the end of the meeting, 15 starters raced 12 laps for the all-in feature that has become a popular finale to the meetings.

Seth Iremonger led for 10 laps until lapped traffic played a major part in the race.

Shanan Gooch took advantage of the extra traffic to finish first, with Iremonger second.

In the rookies class, Conrad Gooch won all three races and Nixon Gooch had three second placings.

In the young guns class, Brodie Gooch had two wins and a second placing, while Vinzent MacGregor had a win, a second and a third.

Luca Vita had a win and two second placings in the junior KTs, while Daniel Tamanui and Koby Gooch had a win each.

Cole Rosie had two wins and Barry Irvine, one, in the pro class and shifters division.

The women’s class had three different winners — Aimee Whiteman, Sharyn Rogers and Lyn Lyle.

The KT heavies also had three winners — Dion Lund, Buck Rogers and Wayvern Vause.

In the rotax class, Shanan Gooch took all three races plus the feature — he had a great day.

Paul Farmer had a second and a third placing, while Ben Briant had a second.

In the KT lights, wins went to Alex Rosie, Toby White and Daniel Taylor, with Seth Iremonger having a second placing and a third. Conor White and Jake Callaghan had second placings, while Toby White and Taylor also had a third placing each.
