Blake Horseman enjoys perfect afternoon in karting’s Tag Senior class
A number of honours were handed out at Southside Raceway as the Bermuda Karting Club held the second trophy day of the season on Sunday.
Among the titles was Blake Horseman, who was victorious in the Tag Senior Class in what proved a perfect afternoon for the racer.
In a dominant display, Horseman won each of the three individual heats, prevailing against Scott Barnes in all three to take the top place on the podium and the title. Barnes settled for second overall with Stephen Corrado completing the top three.
Horseman also got himself on the podium in the well-contested Shifter class where he finished second overall after a strong battle with eventual trophy recipient Ryan Rebello.
Horseman got off to a flying start, winning the first heat, but Rebello responded in fine fashion to take the chequered flag in the next two to ultimately claim victory.
Jorja Thomas claimed the final spot on the podium, having claimed third place in the first two heats and fourth in the final one, with Ryan Burgess finishing third.
Having missed out on honours in the Tag Senior class, Barnes made amends in the L206 Seniors division, where he finished second in the opening heat before claiming back-to-back victories in the next two to prevail.
Corrado failed to build on the momentum of winning the first race, finishing fourth in the next race and third in the final one to take third overall behind Brandon Frank, who sealed a third and two second-places finishes to grab second spot on the podium.
The Tag Junior class proved hotly contested between the three competitors, with Nathan DeCosta prevailing after claiming wins in the first two heats and second in the final one.
Nile Bean took second place overall after enduring the mixed fortunes of finishing in each of the positions in three heats, while J’auza James wrapped up the podium.
Despite the L206 Masters division having only two drivers competing, it proved no less competitive, with Robert Wheatley eventually overcoming Bobby DeCosta. It was the latter who claimed the win in the opening heat, but Wheatley responded superbly with successive victories in the next two to take the honours.
