Long Circuit Superkart Racing Limited: Promotors of the MSA British Superkart Championships.
Reigning MSA Superkart Champion Jack Layton cemented his lead at the top of the championship with two solid results today. In Race 1 he went off at Sunny and had to work his way through to eventually finish fifth. The victory went to local driver James O'Reilly who led from the start and crossed the line 2.5s ahead of Dan Clark. Andy Bird struggled with old tyres and could't stay with Clark, eventually settling for third place. Paul Platt had a crankcase oil seal go but kept going to finish 6th, while Gavin Bennett had an electrical problem and retired after 1 lap.
In race 2 Andy Bird took his first ever MSA Championship victory. James 'Reilly was in close attendance but a broken exhaust with two laps to go dropped him back to fourth place. Gavin Bennett secured second place from Layton after Platt had a problem with a broken chain tensioner and fell back to 10th place.
So provisionally Layton leads the championship with 135 points. Clark and Platt are tied for second on 119 points with Andy Bird up to fourth place on 104 points. (GJ)
