Perfect drives for Barnes, Bean and Barbosa

Scott Barnes, David Barbosa and Nile Bean won all of their heats at the Bermuda Karting Club penultimate race day last weekend.

Barnes wrapped up the Shifters and L206 Seniors class titles and will clinch the Tag Senior championship this weekend, as long as he starts at least one heat.

The former BKC president won all seven of his heats at the Rubis Southside Raceway, lending his kart to Ed Cook for the second heat of the L206 Seniors, who had been involved in a crash in the previous race.

“Knock on wood, it's 99 per cent mission accomplished,” said Barnes, who is the defending Shifter and L206 champion.

Barbosa, who had already won the L206 Masters class, completed a clean sweep of wins, although he was pushed all of the way by Jason North, the BKC race director, who borrowed Travis Lewis's kart. Lewis missed the race week because of injury.

“David had a good day,” Barnes said. “He had a pretty good battle with Jason North. David definitely had his handful.”

In the Tag Juniors, there were three different winners, with Jaden Malpas and Jayden Brimmer claiming their maiden chequered flags. Jorja Thomas, the series leader, won the other heat. “[The Tag Juniors] is the most competitive class,” Barnes said. “All five of those kids [also Ashley Horseman and Jauza James] are pretty competitive.

In the Cadet class, Nile Bean secured a trio of wins to secure the overall title.

“The other two drivers Jacon Hines and Nathan DeCosta were bumper to bumper all day,” Barnes said. “It was good to see.”

The final race day of the series takes place on Sunday.
