Rivalries set to resume at Southside Raceway
Racing resumes at the Rubis Southside Raceway with the second round of the Bermuda Karting Club National Championship campaign on Sunday.
After more than five months away, due to an enforced absence because of the Covid-19 crisis, the new season revved back into gear with 22 karts competing over five different classes in the season opener last week.
On the track, rivalries will be resumed after a hard-fought opening round of races across the classes.
In the bumper L206 Seniors class, Rian Lindo will be aiming to extend his early-season advantage over club president Scott Barnes and David Barbosa. Lindo won two of the three heats last weekend as Barnes, who won the opening heat was left to rue a bent axle for derailing his charge.
Robert Wheatley also sealed the ascendency in the L206 Masters class, with three successive heat victories, while Nile Bean leads the way in the Tag Juniors class, having claimed two heat wins. He holds a narrow points lead over nearest rivals Jayden Brimmer and Jauza James.
The Shifter class also remains keenly contested with Blake Horseman, Michael Fontanetta, Jorja Thomas and Ryan Rebello all contention to battle for heat victories.
Blake Horseman took victory in heat one last week, before Rebello roared back with successive wins in heats two and three. Having made the step up from the junior class, Thomas also proved she is more than capable of being competitive in this class, after securing a hat-trick of top-three finishes.
