Hat-trick of victories for Barbosa
David Barbosa claimed a hat-trick of wins in his first outing in the L206 Masters during the opening race weekend of the Bermuda Karting Club season.
Barbosa, who competed in the Tag Seniors last season, won all three of his heats, with Robert Wheatley claiming a pair of seconds. Absent from the L206 Masters was Jeff Sousa, the defending two-times champion, who has decided to miss the first two race days, with riders permitted to drop their six worst races.
“It was great to see David out in a different class,” Scott Barnes, the former BKC president, said. “He wanted a little change-up.”
In the Shifters, Barnes, the defending champion, secured two wins, with Ryan Rebello winning the other heat.
Barnes also picked up a win and two second-place finishes in the Tag Seniors, where Blake Horseman clinched two victories. With Burgess stepping up to the Tag Seniors, where he achieved a trio of thirds, Jauza James made the best start in the Tag Juniors, winning two races, and Jorja Thomas taking honours in the other. Thomas also secured a second and third, while Ashley Horseman had two seconds and a third. “Those three were all fast last year,” Barnes said. “It’s going to be an interesting class.”
In the Cadet class, Nile Bean beat Jacob Hines in their three heats. Barnes said he is hoping for a larger turnout in the next race day weekend.
“It was a disappointing kart number count,” he said. “But the first race day, people are still getting their karts ready. We had about 18 karts whereas we normally have about 35. We expect more karts next time.”
