Hit The Road Jack
Jack Goldsmith took his usual position at the head of the field after another successful run in the heats.
Welcome to the front row of the grid Oliver Underwood, a great performance so far from Oliver secured 2nd on the grid, sharing the second row was Jack Hodges and Hassain Rashid.
“Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Lets Go Racing Boys”
(I hope that makes sense to some of you, Google it if not)
Jack holds onto the lead like it’s his last fiver as Oliver Underwood chops across Jack Hodges to ensure he keeps 2nd. But, It’s Joel “Lightning McQueen” Young whose eaten his shreddies, with the best start I have seen this season, a lightning start from 7th on the grid, he’s now 3rd and past the recovering Jack Hodges.
Not the best start from 4th placed Hassain Rashid, after a fantastic performance in the heats he’s caught up in the tussle at the start and pits after just two laps, let’s hope we see Hassain next month.
“Please Sir, Can I Have Some More?”
Oliver wasn’t asking twice as he does the unthinkable and passes the unpassable, Like the unsinkable Titanic, Jack has his flaws and Oliver found them and takes the lead!!
“Nobody puts Jack in the corner” and Jack makes his move…. And fails, ready and waiting like Goldilocks at a teddy bears picnic is Joel Young he passes Jack knocking him down to 3rd and now, tries, tries and tries again to pass Oliver.
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again, awesome move and now Joel leads the race.
Ok, so away from the action at the front we did have a race throughout the field. Lee Chapman found a friend in Jack Sweetenham and both looked intent on making up for not such impressive heats.
George Margan’s day was done, a return to the pits allowed Simon Myall and top heavy weigh Vince Young’s three way battle become a two way fight.
Andy Burton had his hands full of aggravation from Donny Bolt, still, impressive laptimes resulted in the duo becoming a trio as they caught up with John Carter who did have an empty track ahead and behind until then.
“Wooooh here he comes, watch out boy he’ll chew you up” Lee Chapman’s friendship with Jack Sweetenham was short lived; he’d left Sweetenham in 6th and had now passed Jack Hodges stealing 4th position.
Joel’s lead looked as fragile as a 1-0 lead for Arsenal and soon he conceded, not once, but twice!
A fight with Oliver gave Jack an early birthday present and the race lead, to add to Joel’s pain Oliver also passed and took 2nd.
No driving off into the sunset for a G&T for Jack this month, new karts and a few kilos of “electric” weight brought the entire pack a whole lot closer but still resulted in Jack on pole and now defending like it’s the 90th minute in a World Cup Final.
Oliver Underwood was making the biggest impressive and his and Jack’s karts almost became one like a dog sniffing another’s backside.
Joel soon joined the kart-centipede as the race entered the final stages!
Joel was first to break free, a look down the outside resulted in a door slammed shut, but what’s this? Lee Chapman entered the party as gracefully as Donald Trump at a feminist party nicking Joel’s third in the process!
Goldsmith strikes gold, again and collects the spoils in the closest fought A final we have seen all season with Oliver Underwood nibbling his exhaust pipe across the line!
Leaving his best till last is Lee Chapman, the late, late show from Lee collects the final podium position ahead of the driver of the day, Joel Young and 5th placed Jack Hodges.
The Final Round: September 09th
