Eastland Kart Club held a points meeting on Sunday.

The feature race at the end of the meeting had 13 karts across several classes taking part — 10 laps for glory and bragging rights.

At the end of 10 laps, Ben Briant had the win in his Rotax. Cole Rosie was second and hard-charging Harley Davis was third.

These races are popular as drivers get a chance to race people they would not otherwise get to compete against.

In the rookies class, Nixen Gooch had two wins and Pyper Irvine had the other — her first win.

In the Rotax Pro class, Roger Moss had two wins and Harley Davis had one.

Davis also had two seconds, while Sean Gooch had one.

In the young guns class, Vinzent MacGregor took all three wins and Hamish Worsnop had three seconds.

Third placings went to Logan Irvine (two) and Tim De La Haye (one).

In the KT Heavy class, Dion Lund won two races and Barry Irvine won the other.

Fred Winterton had his first placings with two seconds. Dion Lund had one.

Buck Roger had two third placings.

In the Junior KT class, Ben Adcock sported a wide grin after his two wins. Hayley De La Haye took the other win.

Jake Callaghan picked up three wins in the KT Lights.

Luca Vita had three second placings, while third placings went to Robert De La Haye (two) and Seth Hall (one).

The women’s class had perhaps the best racing of the day.

The battle between Tessa Irvine and Robyn De La Haye was a highlight.

Tessa Irvine took two wins and Robyn De La Haye, one.

Seconds went to Robyn (two) and Tessa (one), while Michelle Gooch had three thirds.

All in all, it was a great day’s racing.
